Try adjusting them first and it will take hard pressure to apply them, so try to power bleed. They are available at rent it shops.

THE BLEEDER SCREWS MIGHT ALSO BE CAKED UP WITH CRUD

REMOVE EACH SCREW AND POKE A PAPERCLIP OR SIMILAR TOOL INTO THE HOLE (THAT THE BRAKE JUICE SQUIRTS OUT OF) AND WOLLER IT AROUND.

THERE IS A SMALLER HOLE NEAR THE TIP END OF THE BLEEDER SCREW, POKE THRU IT TOO, TO MAKE SURE THE TWO HOLES ARE CONNECT AND ARE OPEN.

RE-INSTALL YOU BLEEDER SCREWS AND TRY TO BLEED AGAIN

EXPLAIN SORTA IN DETAIL, THE WAY YOU ARE BLEEDING THE SYSTEM NOW

Ok I blew out the bleedrs, they were ok, I took the lines of the hubs to see if somthing was blocking the flow, there are fine, hooked them back up tried to bleed them done all 4 from rear drivers side to rear pas, to front pas to front driver, both fronts are real good, both backs just drip, but got new fluid coming out.I can hear the rear pas working when being pumped, cant hear much from rear pas, also cant get rear hubs off, took four nuts off and both screws, and banged on it wih hammer, driver side sounds solid, pas side sounds holow, im soo lost now.
