it must be the seat in the caliper. I have tried changing the bleeder, but no luck. anyone got any good ideas?
the caliper works fine so I really don`t want to replace it, especially since it`s a Versaille rear

I have heard of people using a drill bit to kiss the bottom of the seat to try and clean it up. I have not tried this myself but what do you have to lose. The caliper is no good unless you can fix it.

either that or someone at work suggested cutting the threads off a bleeder and use it to try and lap the seat in.
thanks for the advice

I was thinking of trying to lap it too, but couldn't think of a way to get in there. What you described would work well, so I say go for it, and if it doesn't work, then try the drill bit. Lap after the bit, and there's no way it should leak.
