The Elixir 5's came on my bike (2010 Norco Fluid 2), and the pad on the front brake has been rubbing against the rotor from day 1 (rear one is fine). In an effort to realign the pads myself, I unscrewed the wrong bolt (the large one right next to the Elixir 5 logo) and yeah...fluid started leaking.
So I took it to my LBS to bleed them and get them working again.
I need to take the front wheel off to fit the bike in my car, and I've read online some people say that (although it's not supposed to), doing so tends to mess up the alignment on the Elixir 5's. Not sure if that's a widespread flaw in the design or not, but regardless, my front brake pad is rubbing against the front rotor again (or maybe the LBS just bleed the brakes, but didn't adjust them).
Either way, I don't want to have to take it to the LBS just to get the pads re-aligned as this is supposed to be a simple process. Thing is, after that first experience (these are my first hydros), I'm scared ****less to unscrew anything on the Elixirs again without being certain that it's the right bolt...
So my question is, which is the one I'm supposed to loosen? I believe they are called the CPS bolts? Is it the smaller one right in the center of the brake?
Ps. As I am new to hydros...anything else I should be careful not to do (especially in regards to this process)?
