I will be changing mine in the couple of weeks.

I have a question about the ABS system and the pistons. Iíve read on other forums that you have to slacken off the bleed nipple or take a bit of fluid from the master cylinder for when the pistons are pushed back in to allow the fluid to rise?
I donít understand this as there is surely no more fluid in there from when the OEM pads were put in and the fluid topped up to spec from the factory  :187:

Can anyone tell me if the above is the correct procedure please?

I may even change the brake fluid as itís been in there nearly two years anyway...
What if the whole world farted at once?

Thanks

No mention of taking any fluid out etc. 😁

I flushed the system and filled the master reservoirs two months ago. Even with the fluid topped up from the bleed, when I replaced both front sides last week I did not have to remove any fluid when the caliper pistons were compressed.
