You had a rewind tool trying to push it back in?

The tool turns and pushes the piston in at the same time,just turning won't retract it back in👍

Did you position the rear calipers so the bleed nipple was at the highest point?

Which actually requires them to be unbolted from the carrier...

@CosKev and @Chris King - Webmaster, I had a tool, but it wasn't quite the one you're thinking of.  Being 'remanufactured', these rear callipers move very freely, but I suppose there could be a bit more to be gained.  Just to confirm, I took the calliper off the upright so the nipple was uppermost, then gave it a good bleeding again.  Maybe I need to buy a rewind tool to get the last 1-2mm, and try again.  After re-bleeding all four corners again tonight, the pedal feel is better but not 100%, but at least the fluid is running clearer now.  

Shopping list;  1.  Rewind tool.  2.  Another bottle of DOT4.

Are these any good? Might help if you haven’t got someone to push the pedal.
