So my rear brake started acting up. Symptom was that the rear brake would not work well intermittently. Lever feel and travel was the same, but sometimes it would work well, other times it barely worked at all.
At first I thought I had contaminated the pads (I just started cleaning with pledge), so I went to change them out. Couldn't quite get the pistons all the way in, so I thought I'd squeeze them out a bit to get them moving. Found that even with the pads out the pistons were only moving a few mm. Couldn't pop them out if I tried.
So I bought a bleed kit. Got the bleed block in place, syringes at both ends, but now i can't get fluid to move through the system at all. It's like I'm trying to push it into a closed system.
I'm baffled. I'm following the sram bleed procedure to the letter, but can't get fluid to flow from the lever to the caliper or from the caliper to the lever. I can apply enough pressure to get fluid to leak , but none goes into the system at all.
