Default Brake bleeding - help!!!

I've fitted a new caliper on the rear right and now I cant get any brake fluid to flow to the caliper. I've tried bleeding the brakes and Ive also removed the hose from the caliper and there is still no flow. I resorted to attaching the hoover to try and get the flow through but that didn't work.

Can anyone help I'm all out of ideas

It'll need to be bled through the diagnostic computer. Did you loose lots of fluid?

The abs pump will have to be bled with the diagnostic computer and then you'll have to bleed it manually after.

What was up with your caliper that you were changing it?

The seal over the piston had gone and the the piston was seizing. I replaced it with a second hand one but the female thread on the bleed nipple sheared off so I ended up using the piston and seal from the new(er) piston and putting them into the old caliper body. I thought it was job done until I then tried to bleed the buggers!
