Spilled dot 5.1 on brake pads.

Postby Aphex » Tue Aug 22, 2017 8:45 pm

So I was swapping the fluid and bleeding my brakes when the hose broke it's seal on the bleed nipple.

What's the best way to treat the pads? Sand them? I've already hit the rotor with brake kleen but I've never spilled fluid on the pads before.

I really dont want to purchase a new set since these Vesrah pads are $$$$.

just hose them off really well with water, and take a slow drive to dry them back off. Not a big deal at all
