Re: What No Brakes!!!!!!

Don't go to the dealer, just a parts store, the washers are common. You'll need 2 of them, one on either side of the bolt.

If you remove the top from the master cylinder, making sure it's full of fluid, and keep the bleeder screw tight on the caliper, then you may not have to re-bleed the brake. All you're doing is replacing the washers and tightening them back down. I've been able to do it without having to re-bleed. At the most you'll have to re-bleed that one caliper though, no big deal, just gravity bleed it by yourself.
