Oh ok. I didn't pump the pedal. Not without the pads on..
I did un clip the cable that holds onto the spring arm on the rear Caliper before leaving so I could at least have a tiny bit of hand brake on at least one wheel as it was getting late in the day and told him not to touch the brake pedal.
I did notice when winding the original rear Caliper in that there was some fluid coming out of the piston. The car hasn't been moved for years so it was very stiff.

What I done with the front brake calipers was removed the fluid cap and opened the bleed nipped till it started to come out then nipped the bleed nipped up just until I bleed them all properly.

I will definatly try a kettle on them to help loosen the clip tough.

Never had so much trouble with brakes. Guess it doesn't help being left for so long without use.

Just used his reg number for the car details.

It's a automatic.
