    I was getting a scratching noise from my front brakes and decided to clean them.I was pumping the handle and working the pistons back like ive done in the past,well i guess i went to far and one popped out and some brake fluid came out.I stuck it back in.Now what?Will it work.

    If the seal inside the caliper is OK and the piston is clean try bleeding the caliper. Best bet is to rebuild the caliper, The square cut seals can tear and cause fluid to leak past
