this was after discovering passenger side front disc had a seal problem and was leaking bad.
new seals in and now the problem above, can you advise.

Hello Stephen

I'd try loosening off the flexible brake pipes at the front calipers to see if fluid is getting up to the caliper

if it is then its possible that the caliper isn't bleeding through internally

and it would need rebuilding again to ensure that the seals aren't blocking passageways

if there's no fluid up to the caliper then there must be an iussue with the master cylinder or a collasped flexible line
