    Necessary to download the Toyota Tech Info to replace brake accumulator or can I get by without it using the guides/videos found on this forum and YouTube? I have all the tools necessary as well as the VCI cable/TechStream to bleed the brakes. Just wanted to see if it was absolutely necessary to purchase the two day subscription, as money is really tight. If it is necessary, should I download everything I possibly can for future reference? Are there alternative free maintenance downloads available? I'm currently in a tight spot with money so I'm looking at all of my options before I make the commitment.

    I found that it was helpful to review the manual and documents. But probably not necessary if you're resourceful enough. Be prepared for some fun.

    I am well prepared for the fun, fortunately this repair will also give me an opportunity to replace the PCV valve.

    Is the accumulator within the actuator? Search it up and let me know. Here's what I can find on actuator replacement, I can dig more:
