Brake bleed nipples

Ok bleeding the brakes on the gtv after axle etc and a bleed nipple worn and broke now thought I would get away with this but not it is sooking air in which obviously ain't good

Now priced them up from fiat though ahhh can't be that dear but turns out £9.60 + vat that's 12bloody quid does anyone else think this is a bit over priced ohhh that's for 1

somebody sourced some s/steel ones off fleabay and I fitted mine last week when I changed front disks. Can't for life of me remember seller or link though. Do a search?

Try AA Components in Bridge of Allan, much cheaper than Fiat
Bleed Nipple Thread size in this thread somewhere

Also a place in Alloa that does them, can check the name tomorrow if you like

If its the same as the 156 nipple I've got a used one you can have if you can collect it from Camelon

Best check the thread of the bleed nipple. Some forum threads quote 10mm x 1mm but not all calipers are the same.
