Dude you use an air compressor to clear out a caliper and youll blow the pistons out of it.

Most people cant take a caliper apart and put it together without making a big leak..........

Clean fluid is fine, the fluid will get dirty almost immediately anyways and it absorbs moisture from the air as well.


Brake fluid is hydroscopic meaning it is really attracted to water and will pull it from anywhere it can. Old brake fluid (6 months) should be discarded IF THE TOP HAS BEEN POPPED.
