I think that if I had persevered a bit longer I would have succeeded. Hey ho...

Yeah it's all to easy to jump to the wrong conclusions and assume the worst...and hindsight is a wonderful thing.

You do have to be careful with modern braking systems as has been mentioned, and caution with brakes isn't a bad thing.

As Critch mentioned you can often let the system bleed itself which is quite slow but sometimes solves a problem.

Anyway good to hear you have your car back fixed
