    Will you post link, please! After reading more on this topic on other threads, I am inclined to wait for the brake fluid flush, but I am curious what was found. Thanks.

    If you get pros to replace brake fluid, ask them to test drive after. Also check the bleed valve caps are all present after. You can do this with car on the ground. And be on alert for any difference to brake feel right after, just in case.

    As a mechanic I've bled plenty of brakes without taking tires off. This is nothing new.
