And so you know how you just wander around Bunnings just to find something to do, right?
Well, here is what I saw, over near all the stainless steel hex bolts I am always finding 'reasons' to buy..
Voila! Something to do!! yay!
So anyway, I happened to have near me a set of spanners handy and a pair of blunt nose pliers..
Anyway, the brake fluid in the rear was old.. so I figured, I would put the pliers to good use..
Ohh and by the way.. Brake fluid + painted surfaces = bad, ummkay?
In goes the silver pill..
Don't over tighten, because you will need to bleed the air from that banjo bolt..
A particularly bad video of how to bleed air from a banjo bolt:
You will need a new, sealed
container of brake fluid. The bleeding process will require you to use about a third of this size of bottle.
Once you have bled the banjo bolt, you will also need to bleed the rear caliper, from it's bleeder nipple.
You will need to do this A LOT
I am not here to debate the pros and cons of the various vacuum bleeding/plumbers tape bleeding methods. The whole pump, pump, squeeze, twist, close, repeat method works fine for me.. The trick is to close the nipple off BEFORE the pedal drops to the bottom.
