And it isn't about money only, one can save fingers too. If the SBC system gets activated while one is working with the pads, the system brings pads close to discs and if you happen to have fingers in-between:

It still is not clear to me where the fluid leak was from, it could have been from the above operation when brake cylinders came out far enough to let fluid come out. In that case the whole system would need to be bled (at least).

just out of curiousity. when you say that the fluid leaked out what bolts did you remove on the calipers. not the large ressesed torx bolts that can be seen on the outside of the caliper was it. that would explain the fluid leak. if the person that told you that was the service advisor wouldnt form an opinion of the techs off of them. If they have seen that complaint before and that is what the tech said was wrong then they assume that is the problem all the time. Not all advisors are like that but a lot are so don't start flaming me for that comment. I promise I am not trying to stereotype.

Refilling is not enough when brake lines/SBC pump has got air inside. Hopefully all the workshop needs to do is bleed the system.
