    Default Replacing Bleed nipples

    Hi , I have been bleeding my brakes with other issues, however one of the rear nipples head is a bit mashed up after rounding it with a 10mm socket, ended up bashing a 9mm socket on to loosen it.

    Do you know where I can source a replacement?

    Vauxhall dealer? I remember being able to replace bleed nipples on a saab years ago, So I'd imagine you'd be able to get them from vauxhall.

    IIRC Its a 10mm with a 1mm pitch, if that helps.

    Any good motor parts factor/seller should be able to sell you new bleed nipples.

    Check Ebay??
