    Yep the bleed nipple should go to the top to let all of the air out when bleeding

    Thanks for the advice, callipers fitted with bleed nipples at the top, they bled very easily and work a treat!:-)

    its not a complex job, the callipers are exactly the same apart from the bleed nipples are in a slightly different place, at first glance its not really noticeable, especially if you don't change brakes everyday, so to be sure I asked the question, rather look stupid and be safe.

    I've since found out I'm not the first on here to have had the problem :-)
