Re: clio authentique, problem fitting brake shoes

problem, i made the bottle with fluid and tube, bought some new brake fluid, then i got under the car, loosened and completely removed the bleed nipple with no fluid coming out. i loosened the brake tube and some fluid leaked out. so fluid is going into the wheel cylinder and nothing coming out through the nipple.
i did fill the fluid reservoir with brake fluid and now the pedal doesn't go to the ground. it feels tighter with more effective braking, though still soft and there is still that sound of air leak when i press the pedal.
i think there must be some kind of block in the wheel cylinder or something.
Currently in poewrboy's garage:
clio 1.2, 8v, mk2, 2002, yellow
