release valve? drive old rotor? shoe easy?
Hi, I'm about to do my front pads(and probably the rear shoes soon as well- are those pretty easy?- never done shoes before, know its harder though). I will probably just replace the pads and inspect the rotors, and if they need turning, will probably just wait another few weeks.
1. Does anyone see a problem driving on new pads for a while before actually turning the rotors? I figure at least a few hundred to a thousand miles would be no big deal, if the rotors are not too grooved.
2. When compressing the caliper pistons, is it necessary to release the little fluid valve on the caliper to let out the pressure?
Thanks for any info.D
