Bleeding brakes first time question
Getting ready to do annual wheel circuit bleeding. Thanks to tech article I understand procedure. Speed bleeders coming in the mail. Just one question though. I don't need pads front or rear. Must I still remove calipers and shim pads to get the pistons all the way back in? I understand that this will push the old fluid back up into the reservoir to draw off. But, won't a little more bleeding, w/o shimming do the same thing. Thinking, pushing old fluid up into reservoir to remove or just more bleeding at the screw will accomplish the same. Am I making sense?
