    Yeah it depends what you're doing.

    For just-in-case, I like to disconnect the 12 volt neg cable before lifting a caliper off its rotor. Otherwise it's way too easy (and a catastrophe) to trigger a pressurizing episode, which'll likely pop out a piston. Also makes it easier to avoid an excess pedal travel warning.
