There are numerous things he never told me............
But the one thats realy getting to me is....................

"Never have your first attempt at Bleeding brakes at 11pm after a 12 hour day at work. You will inevitably make them worse instead of better and also need to take them into the shop to get the job done properly"

Damn you paaawww , DAMN you to helllllllllllllllllllll(p)

Which Hope's?

I have a spare diaphragm for the early style of Mono Mini (~'04)

It might just need a little fettling, have you undone the reservoir cap & reseated the diaphragm?

Thanks mate!
It is the mini m4 style master cylinder.
I have tried a couple of times to re seat it but its leaking from the same spot every time. cant see any visible damage , but i suppose it only takes a tiny bit of damage for them to leak because of the pressure involved.
Thats a very kind offer mate, that i would gladly take you up on :wink:

Thanks
