    Front brakes problem 😱😱😱

    Hi guys. Need some help . Iím usually pretty good with this but this time is driving me crazy . I have taken off the front wheel
    To change the tyre when I went to re fit it i pushed the caliper pistons with the screw driver .
    Once all fitted went to bleed the brakes and nothing works all my tricks , undoing the banjo bolts gravity bleed etc
    However if I undo the bolts that hold the left caliper and leave them loose I have brakes !! As soon as I tighten them up the lever Goes all the way down . Any ideas ?

    Check the straightness of the rotor.

    Hi thank you !! I thought of that , in case they bent them in the tyre machine , they seem fine
    Is almost as if there are washers missing between the caliper and the carriers
    But I m pretty sure there wasnít any when I took them apart if I undo all 4 bolts the callipers sit on the discs nicely wondering if the wheel isnít sitting straight unfortunately I donít have a user manual .🤔
