Any reason you can't bleed brakes one at a time during pad replacement. In other words replace right rear pads, bleed brakes on right rear & then go to left rear. Am using Motive Power Extractor.

Sure, why not. Push the pistons all the way back (into the calipers) to ensure you get all the fluid out.

When you think about it having the pistons all the way back into the bore makes sense. It reduces on of the places a bubble can hide. I would envision removing the old pads inserting the new ones and then locking the new set against the caliper. Maybe insert a taper like a screwdriver blade. When you are finished with that corner remove the taper and continue.

Don't forget the obvious, pump the pedal prior to driving off.

The only drawback I see is is when you spread the pads, you mash old fluid into the reservoir to mix with the new fluid. Being somewhat a purist, I change the pads on one side but do not torque the wheel bolts so that they are easy to remove when I come back to that side to bleed the brakes.
