:smashfrea:smashfrea:smashfrea from me. Every shop manual I've ever seen cautions to support the caliper assembly and hydraulics.Mechanics will let your brake caliper, including bracket where applicable, hang by the hose when doing repair work.
Is that a thumbs up :thumb::thumb: or thumbs down :bad::bad: when that practice is used on your vehicle?
That said, I've often seen both dealer and indie techs let the caliper dangle by the hydraulic hose. :lalala:
