Moving the wheels back and forth as you work, will likely cause power steering fluid to spill, from the reservoir, and air may get in the system.
Rather than remove the caliper, remove the bracket with the caliper on it, if like mine (I have front and rear discs - A Teves system. You may have the TRW brake system if you have rear drums).
