    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!!

  18. Siezed bleed nipple - front calipers

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    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? Cheers!
