Or not. New pads should decrease the need for more fluid - until they themselves wear down.joegottberg said:Hi Mike,
I can only guess that the brake fluid had been "topped off" over time.
Since you pushed the pads back, they will need to come "forward" after the wheel is back on.
Yes, you will have to replace the fluid.
