Has anyone had any difficulty fitting one of these kits? fitted mine last night relatively easily but when I took int on a test drive the biting point was almost on the floor so assumed it needed further bleeding. first thing this morning bled it 3-4 times and have now lost everything on the pedal, theres no fluid being pumped from the reservoir. have tried taking the pipe off the master cylinder itself and pressing the pedal but nothing comes out ( I would have expected to see it spraying out on each push of the pedal) any ideas anyone?

thanks talkingcars, I've recieved an email back off nigel with a couple of suggestions to try, I only tried it with the pipe off the master cylinder after no fluid was getting pushed through from the reservoir. just hoping it will be ok but this is my nightshift week at work from tonight so I won't be at my best this week lol

They can sometimes take a lot of bleeding.

Taking the pipe from the master off will properbly have introduced more air in, I'd start again after making sure every thing is up tight.

Are you using a one-man bleed kit, I tried that and couldn't get it right so I ended up employing my 10 year old daughter and it worked fine.

Also DO NOT let the master cylinder empty while bleeding or you'll have to start again again.
well, very happy man now it was the pedal stop and the one man bleed kit, it is now fully operational. the wife really enjoyed sitting in the car pumping the pedal in the cold :rolleyes: but she does get to have her car back
thanks for the heads up on the one man bleed kit and thanks to nigel for his emails :beerchug
