1985 Volvo 740 GLE: bleed..the right rear caliper..bled

Resolved Question:

1985 Volvo 740 GLE w/ATE rear calipers (new). When try to bleed the right rear caliper, i only get a small amount of fluid coming out. I took the caliper off and bled the line and still only got a small amount of fluid. The other brakes bleed normally. It appears to have steel lines all the way up to the junction.

the rubber line will collapse on the inside restricting the fluid...this is common thing ...may be the problem since the car is over 20 years old

happy new years
