    Hi Eric,
    I am a little rusty at changing brakes as I changed mine with my dad a zillion years ago on my mustang. I have a 2012 fusion sel 2.5l 4 banger with disc brakes. left rear was really bad needing rotors and pads. So after getting bracket and caliper off rotor, piston and caliper pretty dirty. i sprayed brakeleen on piston end, that goes against inner brake pad. didnt spray much like i have seen on videos where guys dowse calipers, but wondered if it would hurt outside of boot, or should i wipe boot with clean shop rag or worry if any cleaner landed on outside of boot that i should need to clean off with something else? Thanks in advance,
    Dave S.

    if you are using a non chlorinated brake cleaner, it should be fine.

    Actually, I contacted CRC and they said it is actually more of a plastic issue, and just wiping it off with clean rag that the crc shouldnt hurt the boot. I used the original red can, and they said im fine. Thank you for your input, im just getting back up to speed with working on cars diy.
    cheers,
    Dave S.
