think it's girling and looks about 8mm or even smaller...maybe corroded? any way to bleed it from flexi saves me snapping the nipple?
On our 1.4 2000 its a 9mm to bleed the brakes. I always spray a little bit of wd40 a couple of days before and then spray some more when its time to do the job. I have had 1 nipple snap and it was the a cylinder replacement. If the fluid hasn't been changed for a few years, I would recommend changing the brake fluid.
