He wont have touched it tho....
On a pad change itll be not touched at all!

Not even on a drum service

Only thing is
A - generally its failed
B - he pressure bled it and used too much pressure (dowt it)
C - its suffered (saltt)water ingress which has caused it to leak, which in the uk isnt uncommon to rot seals....

Re: Brake fluid

Be difficult to take on garage with no proof though. Had car three years before they done pads and never had to touch fluid.

Re: Brake fluid

Load sensing pressure regulating valves are tough . I can't think of any way a pad Change could cause one to leak.
They can leak just through age though.
Another cause of problems is if brake fluid is very old and has absorbed a lot of water. The water in the brake fluid causes the seals to swell. Changing the fluid for new then causes the seals to shrink , leak may ensue.
My thought is problem is coincidental to time of pad Change. These things do happen.
Get it fixed and enjoy your car.
Good luck.
