Question about 2004 Nissan Maxima
Do I have to disconnect the battery before replacing the brakes
No but thier is an important step to take while doing brakes so that back pressure does not upset or contaminate the ABS.Make sure you clamp the flexible brake hose with a hose line clamp that will not damage hose.Loosen the bleed nipple just enough so that the pressure from the piston being pushed back forces the fluid out.You will notice the color of the fluid is different compared to whats in the master cylinder.Heat destroys whats in and around the brake piston and better to be rid of it than letting it stay in the lines.Once piston is all the way back assemble brake system,undo clamp and bleed as normal,If done right there will be very little air and no brake issues in regard to the ABS.Good luck
