In my quest to seemingly find evermore “2 minute” jobs to stop me getting on the road, I’ve found the bleed nipple on my clutch slave cylinder to be pretty badly mangled, and I want to replace it, rather than screw it back in with molegrips like the last person seemingly did!
Does anyone know...

Anyone got any workable solutions to free the bleed nipple on 4 pot Brembo caliper.. it's the inside one that's being a pain. The Alfa specialist, through experience is hesitant to apply more force saying he knows it's going to snap off. Had to bleed the caliper by turning it upside down...
I'm looking to replace the bleed nipples on my 156 2.0 jts 2004 (ATE calipers)

I need help as not sure what to do, I was changing the started motor and inadvertently I broke a nipple on the back of the engine block that had a black rubber pipe going to the base of the throttle body.
I think it is used to cause a vacuum but not 100% sure, but can this be...
Hello. I am refurbishing some rear brake callipers that I have spare and intend to paint and fit to my spider. Now, both Bleed nipples were stuck solid and I tried heat, freeze but still would not budge, I sheered one nipple off and the other I cut off.
I drilled through one of the bleed...
I like reading the service guides for different cars in Practical Classics and they often point out grease nipples on various parts for maintenance.
I know there's one on the prop shaft for us but are there any others I could put my grease could to good use on?
I helped my mate to change discs and pads, and whilst one of the locking nipples came out with no pain, the other one was like welded in!! It took us an insane amount of efforts and strength to remove it, until eventually it snapped halfway, leaving us with a stub of it sticking out of the hub...

Please can anybody help, I have managed to snap the brake caliper bleed nipple off the back brake, does anybody know where I can get brake calipers from second hand or how much it would cost for new ones from unipart or somewhere like thatin the Manchester area? My friend reckons ill just need a...
Bleed nipple is completely seized. I'm hearing lots of 'methods' (soaking WD40, gentle heat etc.) but I'm convinced that I'm going to shear it if I'm not careful. Any ideas?
When/if I do budge it, how easy is it to replace the nipple entirely, and does anyone have the part number?
I've just refitted my beautifully repainted red Brembo calipers and thought I would just "slacken off" the bleed nipples ready to bleed them tomorrow.
Only the damn bleed nipple sheared straight off!
Does anyone know of any way of getting the remains out of the caliper or is it a...
