Nice Instruction video however I thought with antilock brakes you need to loosen the bleed screw when you use the C-Clamp to push the pistons back. Any thoughts from anyone?
Craig B August 29, 2018
Normally the fluid just goes back to the reservoir without opening the system.
John B August 29, 2018
I didnot lossen the bleed screw when isting the c clamp to compreas the caliper. However make sure you pump the brakes back Up befor driveing after instlation otherwise the calipers will be sloppy until the pressure is buitl back up. Also park with the parking brake on for a few days so the pressure is distributed to all 4 wheels and not just the drive wheels when the vehicle is in park. It will lesten the chance of the front brakes doing ann the work when your stoping
