    Default Air in brake system keeps coming back

    Right the story so far is that the car needed a new master cylinder which was fitted around 9 months ago, after this the car was fine for around 3 to 4 months

    However afterwards the pedal started to feel as if air was back in the system, and the pedal lost its feel and gained more travel unless pumped. Now after multiple bleeds the problem remains however by bleeding the brakes the problem disappears for a month and then slowly returns.

    the system has been pressure bled and manually bled multiple times so suggestions would be grateful!

    Also worth doing a complete check of brake lines and abs pump. Checking for corrosion and any sign of and fluid.'

    fliiding getting out means air can get in
