    Default Rounded off bleed screw - rear caliper

    As above, had to refit the old pads on both sides as couldn't get the screw off. What are my options? Google returned sod all for a new bleed screw, does that mean a new caliper? If so who are the best stockists?

    Thanks in advance

    Bleed nipple size is 10mm with a 1mm pitch iirc. As above mole grips and try pouring the contents of a boiled kettle over it to help shift it.

    Try a tapping a smaller single hex socket on as well, maybe an imperial size.

    I'm sure this is for the bleed nipple, mike usually puts a molegrip on the nut and gives it a tap with hammer to loosen it.

    Panic over nothing - G clamp on the piston and multigrips to wind it back and it was a dream!
