    confused Brake Upgrade Problem.

    I recently bought 314mm discs, calipers etc to do the upgrade on my 2006 1.8 Vectra

    All went well until it came to bleeding them, the brakes were solid and spot on for the first couple of pumps and then after about a minute the peddle went right down to the floor. Bled them again and then it happened again.

    Gave everything a going over and there is no fluid leaking from anywhere????

    Have had to put the old setup back on for now just so I have a car with brakes.......any ideas what could be causing the problem as I have run out of ideas

    Also make sure the clips that hold the pads in are fitted as the same used to happen on the older Vectra's when they were fitted wrong.
