Hey guys, having some brake problems. Bought a 1997 GTV with bad brakes. Rear o/s caliper had seized, hose was no good etc. managed to refurb caliper with new seals, replaced hose, new pads as well. Now I seem to have an issue with bleeding. I have bled them about 5 times but each time I am still getting air coming through. Brakes are very spongy and not effective at all. I have read about the possibility of having air in the ABS. Is this a dealer job? Any suggestions?

This is from another post:

"Should air enter the brake control cylinder as a result of incorrect air bleeding procedure, proceed as follows :

- Press the brake pedal quickly and repeatedly and bleed the air in the following sequence :
1. RH rear
2. LH rear
3. LH front
4. RH front

- Lastly carry out the normal air bleed procedure in the following sequence .

1. LH front
2. RH front
3. LH rear
4. RH rear"
