    Default Bleeding brakes?

    2007 SRi estate

    I cannot get the ****ing brakes to bleed up correctly?!!?! What am i doing wrong?!

    Using Gunsons eezibleed to pressurize the system.. now, Im led to believe that you start with the n/s rear then the o/s rear, then n/s front and last o/s front.. is this correct?

    Once it looks like all ok, start the car and the pedal drops to the floor when pressed, then when pumped becomes hard (oooerrr)

    Orrrrr if anyone is close to Luton that is a clever dick and has time to help me then please do!! Need the car sorted asap meant to be going out lol.. been on it since 6.30

    Have to go to London shortly so will check when i get back, should be about 10-10.30 ish

    Thanks in advance.. Craig

    Just 2 words

    1. Bell

    2. End

    Helps if you get the calipers on the correct side of the car

    After i swapped them to opposite sides and bled them up... that helped no end!
