    Long time no post, as car has been pretty damn good.
    Anyway noticed brake flexis getting past their best, order and fit four new ones all easy to do, bleed them up also easy, road test first press long travel second press back to normal.
    So rebleed still the same, wife reckons they are okay but they are not.
    I did notice when bleeding the rears they seem to almost cut off in mid squirt, very little air from each pipex4.
    Bled the old simple way with helper (wife) spanner and pipe.
    Any ideas some merc specific thing?
    Ps should add im pretty convinced theres no air but there must be obviously!

    Are you sure air is not getting back in through the bleeder screws? Your bleeding pipe tight on the screws?
