Un-Blown Fake ZQ8
So when I used to put on new pads on my old vehicle I did it the lazy way. Pull of the wheel, pull off caliper, press in piston w/ C-clamp etc. put in new pads put caliper back on.. I would refresh and bleed every 3rd time or so. My friend who THINKS he's a mechanic swears that if I dont drain the brake fluid pressing the piston in on the caliper will break some expensive part in my ABS. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Last time I did my pads I did new fluid etc.. just incase. Well now I just want to get some new pads on there and deal with the BS when I have time... So I guess my question is, have you guys ever pressed in the piston on the caliper w/o draining the brake fluid?
