Frozen Caliper how to R&R it

i have a frozen caliper on the drivers side of my 93 legend. I'm either going the bone yard or bu one rebuilt by a local parts store. I have done alittle research and according to Autozone I need a special tool to bleed the caliper after i install the new one. It also mentioned something about high pressure since it is a ABS system. I'm pretty knowledgeable in car repair but haven't replaced a caliper which isn't hard. But i'm leary of it when i saw this warning at the autozone.

My ? is, is it just a simple pull and replace then bleed, do i need to bleed all 4 calipers if i release the pressure on the drivers side caliper only? Any help is appreciated and if there is a link to step by step on here i didn't find it after several searches on replacing caliper, and then just caliper. Not trying to clog up the forum w/stuff but since i haven't replaced a caliper in about 15 yrs i'd like to know before i get knee deep and regret not doing alittle more research.

thanks

There's a bleeder on the back of the caliper its a 10mm. Normally when you pull one caliper you don't need to bleed all of em unless there's air in the system. I've removed both Gen legends calipers multiple times and its easy just make sure you don't break or crack the rubber lines Going to it and make sure there bolted back up were there supposed to be or it can rub on the rotor and yes been there done that

thank you for the insight

so your saying it's just like doing a regular brake on just about an car. nothing special that needs further attention. i've replaced calipers before buton domestics and i've bleed brakes before so that's nothing new to me. I just saw the info at autozone about someting in regards to the ABS and it being under high pressure and if it's not done right stuff can go wrong. I've done enough work in and around cars but with imports or something i have yet to really get into I'm leary of. But it's reasurring to know that it's jut like any other car.

basically i can get away with just bleeding the side i take the caliper off of and that should be good enough. i'm sure i'll know itif i don't get brake pressure to the pedal after im done installing it. i replaced the back brakes a few months ago and was done in roughly 15-20 mins. I appreciate the info again.

I've never had any issues with ABS with removing calipers, and as far as the work goes its like any other caliper in my opinion
