    Front brake master cylinder

    Also need a front brake master cylinder after someone managed to snap the bleed nipple bolt thingy.

    ? really, sounds like they put a lot of pressure on it! why not just get the snapped bit out and replace the bleed nipple? be a lot cheaper

    here's a supplier of parts -> click me <-

    Didn't put alot of pressure on it from what I could tell. Maybe it had weakened or something?
    It's snapped flush with the bolt hole so can't get a grip on it with anything. No ide about drilling it out or anything.

    I wouldn't drill it but an easy out should get a purchase on it post a pic up - whereabouts are you? if you want to send it to me I'll see if I can get it out for you (if you're at the point of replacing theres not much to loose I guess?!

    easy out are at all machinemart stores for a few quid, its a long tapered, reverse threaded cone shape, that your turn in the 'extract' direction, bites into the hole and turns out, though you may have to drill the stud hole out a little to get one in.

    If you can find a mini torx bit I find they work better than easy outs (and are much cheaper) - drill, tap the torx bit in & away you go... not sure how small they go though.
