    Default cant get an brake fluig to rear nereside caliper

    I changed the pads in my 1.9 diesel vectra 2005,everything was ok until I come to bleed them.I cant get any fluid to come out of the rear n/s cylinder altough it comes out of the o/s,
    They had started to feel spongy and the pedel loosing pressure before I chanded them

    Have you got a brake pipe clip/vice?..I would clip the line closed and remove the bleed nipple from the caliper. Clean it through and put back in place..maybe even unclip the line and see if fluid flows.....

    Air lock maybe?...did you use an ezibleed pressurised system or a pump the peddle and release the bleed nipple approach?..ezibleed for me,runs off air pressure from the spare tyre so is a forced system,

    I believe that the braking system is effectively split into two seperate systems,why i bleed opposite corners/diagonals.,This is a safety system ,should one fail the other compensates.One time me and my brother struggled with a similar problem..turned out the pump had failed.simple fix..when we knew what was broke.
