Bleed nipples RTC1526 

Trying to fit new ones albiet Britpart, they appear a fraction longer than the ones taken out, but i am only able to get them in a couple of 3 threads then they lock up!?! Would have thought they would go at least 3/4 or 2/3 they way in?

Any ideas please as idealy need to bleed ready for work tomorrow. 

Cheers Andy

Doesn't sound right. Does it seal at all or not?

Can you compare the thread to one of the old ones?

Your local motor factors should be able to supply bleed nipples, or even a half decent garage  workshop.

Just checked depth of hole in the caliper, and low and behold they are shollow!?!

So Britpart nipples are somewhat longer!?!

Have to wait till wifey gets back to bleed and see if they seal???

Would not worry about them being longer. I would want to make sure from the point to the beginning of the thread is the same length.

Yup, looks like they should work to me, thread stop to point is the same on both.

Cheers guys kind of had the same feeling whilst trying to get the last one out! X3 fairly straightforward after a clean up and an 11mm socket, the last one as always didn't want to play!?! But after a little chat with a 10mm socket and a hammer it eventually saw sense and joined the party!!!

Well the longer bleed nipples work just fine after all! Yeeeha

And the upside is, with them being raised up more it makes them easier to get to as they are not down behind the brake pipes.

Thanks for all the replies.
