Default Beelding brake oil VS Power Flush

No harm at all. Just goes quicker. We use them all the time at the dealer.

Since I did not find power flush machine around me, I finally did it my self by bleed oil from caliper. The procedure gone smooth. But I suspect two issue but not sure they are serious enough.

1. While taking oil out from caliper I did press and depress the brake few times to get the oil out...otherwise it was not coming (In between I did try to put the handbrake down and put the gear in N so that I might see good flow of oil.

2. Brake is working perfect while drive and no warning sign on dash, but the problem I see that my brake lights still ON while driving, so when I checked I saw my brake pad has a play now or may be lose.

Rest All fine. Kindly advise.
