i am 90% sure you will be fine changing out the bleeder as long as no one pushes on the brakes. its been well over a year since i have bled brakes so im not totally positive. make sure you have some brake fluid to top it off periodically while your bleeding the breaks. and remember to close the lid on the master cylinder after you check it and don't let anyone push on the brakes while it is open.

You're bad! :lol::lol: If you only knew how many times I wanted to do that on this site.

To the original question, I was told that you really shouldn't break into your lines unless you really need to. I just had my pads/rotors changed, and no bleeding was necessary.

when just changing rotors and pads yes but from what i understand he is changing out the calipers too. you have to bleed them when you change out the calipers right?

Why close the lid? I've never done that, the few times I've flushed brakes. Is this something that needs to be done?
Thanks
