Brake Bleeding Problem

For the past few weeks, my front brakes have been on there way out, i took the plunge today to change them, and i caught them on time, as there was less than 5mm of pad left on them. I took old ones out, and so i could get new ones in i undid the bleed nipple so i could push the piston in so i could get it over new pads, i replaced both front brakes.
But now when i went for test drive when i push brake pedal in peddle travels all most to the floor, and car does eventually stop.
I bleed them with help from my mum, but they are still the same.
Then a mate came and had a look, he started the engine, pumped peddle a few times, and on the last time before he depressed pedal, i undone bleed nipple loads of air came out, but peddle still goes to thre floor, ANY ADVICE GREATFULLY RECEIVED.

Re: Brake Bleeding Problem

You need to bleed them properly. The order is in my guide to renewing the master cylinder (do a search here for fingers99 and master cylinder) and you'll find a shedload of guides to brake bleeding generally on google.
Thanks david295 thanked for this post
