Hi guys, im not giving up with this. Im getting the normal squirt each time i bleed the driver side but the pedal dont sink and feels firm, im guessing that that little squirt each time is the norm for a ford. Im gonna replace the slider pins as they pop right out and the handbrake return spring as that when the handbrake is off is lose and can be removed by hand and dont return the lever right back. Then getting to a garage for a brake check. Cheers guys for all the patience on this one. Failing all that ive seen a set on ebay now selling 80 a set refurb

well I tried this again with the girlfriends help kept the handbrake on, but notice the return spring loose so might have to replace this, redone the passenger side and she said it got much better under foot the more we done it, but the driver side she said still felt stiff regardless, when the handbrake is applied I cant turn the disc so handbrake is working ok, but when I asked her to hold down the brake pedal I can still move the disc. she says when the pedal is pumped 4/5 times and firms up and then I undo the nipple it don't sink??? Im gonna replace the carrier slider bolts but not sure what size they are, any ideas cheers

right just incase im missing something or overlooking something simple this is what im doing? Undo the master cylinder in the engine bay, have my gf pressure the brake pedal a few times till it firms up and then hold it, whist I undo the rear far side caliper bleeder nipple till the pedal sinks to the floor, do up the bleeder nipple top up master then repeat till no air shows????

hi guys just got in from trying the tyre compressor trick, well the cylinder moved, so I cleaned out inlet and the bleed nipple still nothing when trying to bleed? now im beginning to wonder if the carriers may be at fault as I noticed the nut slider bit with the rubber grommet on was hanging out so wonder if this would cause any issue with the calipers function. The caliper must be ok as I blew compressed air into the inlet and it blew out the bleed nipple side. done the nipple up and done it again and the cylinder moved. am I missing something here, ive never known a caliper to be like this hard to bleed
