Re: Clio GT rear brake squeel

When retracting caliper pistons on a car with ABS it is recommended to open the bleed nipple - the ABS control unit doesn't always take kindly to having fluid forced in the wrong direction. You may get away with it but in my opinion it ain't worth the risk or cost of having to replace an ABS unit.

Also when retracting rear wheel calipers ensure the handbrake adjustment is fully let off.
