Hey folks, so I just got this used elixir 5 for a bike i'm building. Got the bleed kit, and started bleeding acording to SRAM's video instructions...
Bleeding the caliper is no problem. However, when bleeding the brake lever, it seems that there is a little bit of air going back and forth in the lever that I can't get rid of, and it makes the hissing sound when I apply pressure or pull on the syringe...
Video is here, should be the latest post
What did I do wrong? Or is the brake no good or some sort of seal/oring is leaking air?
If I leave the hissing sound be and plug the bleed port, the lever would be firm for less than 10 presses, then it goes squishy and all the way to the handle bar...
