Hey Guys,

Must you bleed the brakes after changing the calipers. My brakes fluid is all good and clean. Is there a need to do this or can I just change the calipers and add a little bit of missing fluid.

thx
 






Bleed the Brakes after your done... you will have air in the system after changing the calipers...
 






the calipers will hold most of the fluid (more)_

The calipers hokd a few ounces of fluid in them. New calipers = few ounces of missing fluid on each side. Simply filling up the resevoir would still leave trapped air in teh calipers.
Calipers dont work with air in them,
You must bleed each wheel you worked on.
If you work on the rear wheels you must also bleed the RABS valve first.
