I needed to release the parking brake tension, so I was going to remove the coil spring on the rear disk caliper.

Little did I know that the bolt holding the spring srews right into the caliper (I thought it would be a blind hole). And, it is not the bleeder screw.

When it got pretty loose, it started to "spritz" out fluid, and I tightened it up right away.

Any chance air got in there? I would say "No", but maybe I just need more people to tell me "No, you idiot, of course no air could get in there if it was spraying out fluid!"

you probably won't need to bleed. The master cylinder is mounted higher than the caliper and fluid will gravity feed from the MC to the caliper, normally.

I bled mine the other night without touching the pedal. Just loosened all 4 bleeders, filled the MC and let gravity to it's trick. They work well.
