Hi Carrameow,

If I recall right from the last time I replaced the brake hoses on my Suzuki, you need to do it with 2 people. When bleeder hose open, one person presses down the brake pedal and leaves it down. Then the second person closes the bleeder valve and then you release the brake pedal. Then you press down again, open valve etc. So you get "one way" out the valve only and don't suck in air again. Make sure the brake fluid reservoir does not run dry in between. Bleeder valve on second caliper needs to be closed, too.

Otherwise, could your rebuilt have left something clogged?

Good luck
