Do I need to open the resevoir cap to allow expansion of the brake fluid when pressing the caliper in?
Stephen J on May 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, you do not have to open the reservoir cap when replacing the rotors. As with all brake jobs, you are only required to open the reservoir cap if you are looking to bleed the brakes.
