Thanks..

Well, it's been over 500 miles now and the ABS light hasn't reappeared. I guess venting the M/C overnight did the trick. Wonder how the air got in there, anyway?

Thank you all, again. I am sworn off the idea of flushing and you have also persuaded me to wait a while before touching the transmission at all.

Awesome! Thank you!!
I am currently battling similar problems on a CLK 430 (2000) with 41,000 miles. Does anyone know if there's a similar setup in my car?
BTW, what does OVP stand for?

Thanks....
