Problem bleeding front brakes
I was bleeding my brakes out today after noticing abnormal squishiness in my front brakes.
Pretty much, I'm unable to bleed my front brakes on the right side. The left side bled quick and easy, and I ended up having to bleed the Master Cylinder, and the brakes lines from the bolt connecting the brake line to the caliper. I was unable to bleed the air out of the caliper.
Problem: when loosening the bleeder valve on my right caliper and attempting to bleed my lines, i get air being introduced from the base of the valve (the threads). I tried a pump and the old manual method for bleeding and was unsuccessful in using the bleeder valve.
My left caliper and rear brakes went fine.
This is extremely frustrating. Has anyone seen this or know what might be the issue? I might end up replacing my calipers if I can't figure this out.
