Brake fluid change
« on: August 11, 2020, 05:18:55 PM »
Hi, is it necessary to remove left brake caliper and position hoses in an upward direction when changing brake fluid? My manual says "displace" the caliper and secondary master cylinder. I don't understand why. Any assistance would be most appreciated, thanks.
