Thanks for the response Merlin. Yeah, the piston type is a 'screw' in. That's what caused me the problem, have only ever encountered the 'push-in' type (20 years since I was an active mechanic). Pads where down to their last on O/S/R, piston all the way out, so I assumed it had seized when it wouldn't push back in. Remove bleed nipple to clean, plus flexi pipe, then realized my error (fluid res' went from max to min).
Bled until I got constant fluid. Only bled the rear two, engine running, H/Brake off. I've got brakes, but feels like front only. Back when I was a 'Mech' I remember having to re-set the h/brake slack adjuster on certain cars. H/brake feels same as before though.
Did the N/S/R no problem, minimal fluid loss. Maybe try a complete bleed on O/S/R first. Then do a simultaneous bleed on all four? What do you think?
Thanks in advance. Chris.
