Re: Front caliper bleeder screw size

.its only a problem when bleeding the rear brake on that side..makes a mess.. what I did with all the work I put in on mine. was mark and drill a hole in the 2 plates. to run the tube over the end of the bleeder.. 1st plate is the one you see the 2nd plate is at a angle on the under side..I only did this to keep things clean. when putting the car back together..and setting the rear brakes back on the car.. but on a side note..the outer plate was never a issue..




the last thing I wanted was blake fluid spashing all over..
