Problem is my brake pedal has a lot of travel I have put pads and discs on front and pads on the back
I have bled the brakes so no air in there but I have found the front passenger side brake is slow to react when the pedal is pressed
So could this be the caliper or the brake line
And help would be great
Thanks a lot

I found it really difficult to wind the piston in (using an angle grinder spanner), and found it much easier to remove the brake line from the caliper (after putting a hose clamp on the brake line, obviously) - that way you can get the caliper on the bench and wind the piston back in easily as there is no pressure/resistance at all doing it this way.
The approved method is to clamp the brake line, and undo the bleed valve before winding in the piston. But as I said, I find it much easier with the caliper off the car.
