Bleed screws

by Robs-se » Mon Aug 30, 2010 4:36 pm

Brakes a bit spongey so bled the fronts ok, on attempting to do the rears noticed the bleed nipple things were leaking so assume thats the cause of the air intake into the system.
Question is can these bits be replaced or is it the whole calipre that needs to be replaced?

Bleed nipples can be replaced, but be careful as they can easily snap as well.

give them a try, if it sanps then go for a caliper. you can get both from your local motor factors. also you will find they probably do a exchange item for the calipers if needed.

hint, use plent of wd40 when trying to move the old nipple
