    Hi

    I changed my rear discs and caliper yesterday everything seemed okay. I pumped brakes as normal but didn't test drive. Today I get in the car and brakes seem fine until I tried to gently brake but there was nothing there, **** myself. Pumped again and braking hard seems to work but again when braking gently pedal goes to the floor. Any ideas?

    Hi Mate

    First bleed the two nipples on the master cylinder, DO NOT press the pedal do one at a time and just let it trickle out on its own for at least 20 minutes each, make sure you keep it topped up with brake fluid.

    next bleed the caliper furthest away from the master cylinder in the same way and the do the other three after that, do not presss the pedal just leave it trickilng out.

    This should do the trick
