Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi
About three years ago I replaced the master cilinder and the front callipers
Also the rear wheel cilinders one frount driver side ruber and stell line
The paso gear side ruber line also the rear lines across the axel
Then bled the brakes they worked ok but not as good as they should be
Until I had to have pas it's mot then I could not get the parking brake to pass the test replaced the rear drums still no god tried to blead the brakes
That's when I could not get the brak fluid out the rear brakes
Sorry about the long story but hop it helps
Thanks Steve
Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 2 years ago.
Ok from what you have replaced already and the fact that they still won't bleed, this issue is consistent with one of the brake lines leading from the master cylinder being collapsed or restricted causing limited fluid to the rear. The brake lines will need to be checked as a next step.
