    Avid XX lever problem

    Hi, I have a problem with said lever in my gf's bike, I think. The bike's been unused for almost a year now and I noticed that the rear brake is stuck. The lever only moves a little, the pads rub against the rotor but don't move at all. The front lever might've been pushed without the wheel in place when hauling the bike in my car. Anyway, I tried to bleed the system but was unable to push fluid through either end. Tried removing the hose from the caliber, no fluid coming through when pushing the lever so I'm thinking there's something stuck inside the lever? Can I do something about it myself or should I just send it to a bike shop for repair?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hmm, so the lever works and if I take the hose of the caliber and push fluid through the bleed screw it comes through the bottom of the banjo bolt, but if it's attached to the caliber there's this resistance and nothing happens. With the hose attached to the lever nothing comes of the banjo. How can the banjo get stuffed up?!
