BRAKES!!!

Ok refresh my memory.... Do you bleed your brakes first then change rotors and pads or change the parts then bleed? Need a refresher on this been a while.

Why are you bleeding the brakes to change pads? You shouldn't have to touch the bleeder.

Re: BRAKES!!!

if the fluid is about 5 years old its a GREAT idea to drain it all though

I'm not bleeding them just because I'm changing pads, just bleeding them because my pedal feels squishy and goes in a bit b4 I feel it catch. The car probably has never had it done so while the wheels are off and I'm in that area I'm doing it all.
