Espace IV Spongy Brakes


I have just changed the ABS pump on my Espace after the dreaded 'check ESP' fault but now I'm having trouble with a spongy pedal.

I have bled the system 5 times (the last time with a power bleeder) and there is no air coming from the calipers, I have double checked all of the unions, brake lines and ABS pump and there is no leakage anywhere and there is no loss of fluid in the reservoir.

However there is still air in the system somewhere but I cannot clear it. The brakes work OK but they're not as sharp as before the pump was changed.

Does anyone have any ideas?
