my rear brake locked up last week due to pads being forced onto the brake disk, rode home at 15mph full revs, stripped the caliper yesterday as i thought the pistons had seized in the caliper, cleaned and reseated the pistons which lead to me having no pressure on the rear brake pedal which left me trying to bleed the brake with no avail.
I decided to take the banjo bolt off the top of the rear master cylinder to see if the fluid was being pushed out from the top which it wasn't, I came to the conclusion the the piston in the cylinder had seized.
What i did was use and allen key to push the piston back down then pressed the brake pedal, repeated the process a couple more times until it was moving freely, connected it back up and vac bled the rear brake and it did the trick, so if your having trouble bleeding your rear brake check the master cylinder 1st to stop you wasting time
