    Avid XX lever bleed issue

    Having problem with bleeding one of my Avid XX levers on my '11 Scalpel. Front went well, rear I could push fluid from the caliper up to the lever. I took the hose off and I can push fluid through the hose. Tried to push fluid just through the bleed hole on the lever (without the hose attached) and I can't. I assume I should be able? Thus the cause of not being able to bleed the hose from the rear?

    Any one experienced this before, was hoping to ride tomorrow!

    Thanks

    Happened to me too. Had to send the brake back for warranty replacement.

    I managed to bleed it by ensuring the plunger was in the return location in the lever. Although it is working the adjustment and spring back isn't working too well. Ordered re-build kits, hope that will fix it!
