Hi,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Do you mean the master cylinder was replaced when you say the masterpump?

Also, were the brake calipers replaced?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i ment masterpump and all calipers
Expert:  Eric replied 1 year ago.

HI,

Ok, the most common issue is installing the new calipers on the wrong sides - they fit either side but are actually side specific for correct bleeder screw replacement.

Look at the calipers you installed. Are the bleeder screws below or above the brake hose to caliper connection(towards the bottom or top of caliper)?

If they are below, then you have them on the wrong side. When the bleeders are below the connection, there is always an air bubble at top caliper that will never bleed out. Swap sides with the calipers and bleed them and you are good to go.

If they are correct, let me know
