Re: FRONT BREAKS STOP WORKING WHEN I CHANGE PADS
its simple man, now you don't have a hydraulic system that works anymore. you need to bleed the brakes now. when you split the caliper, it takes a long time, and a lot of fluid to get a good bleed accomplished.
fyi, you don't need to split the calipers to change the pads next time. if you want to clean the pistons next time, just get an old toothbrush and some soapy water and clean them up with that. you don't want brake fluid on the exterior of the pistons/pads/rotors.
