I replaced all 4 of them when I completely overhauled the brake system back in Sep of 2015 when I got the B2. I think the only thing I did not replace regarding the brakes was the Master Cylinder. New rotors, drums hardware, lines everything.

Well, I felt froggy and decided I would flush the front brakes. Ugh, it was nasty. Had the color Coke. Even got some grit out of there.
I'm thinking I didn't get the fluid flush I paid for four years ago. Garage kept and about 7k miles since then. I think it will take a couple of flushes to get it cleaned up or even new calipers.
So I take it out today and yep the light is back on and the brake pedal is hard like manual brakes feel instead of that little bit of softness you get with power brakes.
It stops great as it is. I think I'll let it like it is for a while and see what happens. I may be doing MC and calipers sooner than I wanted to
Regardless, I rolled the window down and drove 40 miles around town this morning 😊
