AW: [DML] Brake Caliper Seperation

They say that because those are special bolts that shouldn't be reused,
like the cylinder head bolts. same story.

I did that, too several times yet and never had a problem.
But if there's a problem....I'll be in big trouble I guess.


I just rebuilt one of my calipers last night. I put in new pistons and 
seals.  In reading my shop manual it says "DO NOT SEPERATE THE TWO 
HALVES OF THE CALIPER"  It doesn't say why.  I did seperate the two 
halves of the caliper by removing the 4 bolts with no problem what so 
ever.  I even put it back together with no problems.  

Does anyone know why the caliper should not be seperated?
