    Ru Roh--Elixir piston popped out

    I was bleeding the Elixir 5's on my wife's bike and the bleed block slipped out without my noticing. When i was bleeding the lever, fluid started pouring out of the caliper because one of the pistons had popped out.

    I was able to slide the piston back in and re-bleed the system. Everything seems nice and firm and i don't see any leaking. Did I dodge a bullet here or is there likely some damage I'm not noticing?

    Thanks in advance!

    Clean the caliper and put the pads in and go. If you rebuilt the caliber, the pistons would have to come out. You just did it the messy way.
