Just did the front brakes on the Fairmont to find front drivers side nipple wont bleed without losing fluid from where the thread of the nipple sits in the caliper. I have cleaned the nipple multiple times in an attempt to make sure its not blocked but I'm still getting fluid from around the nipple thread. I did notice the hole at the base of the nipple ( that sits inside the caliper) is a bit warn and fluid flows freely from the caliper hole itself..... so I would say it in need of a new nipple? I have looked at caliper kits on fleebay and it doesn't seem to have bleed nipples in the kit. Are bleed nipples in a caliper kit and if not can I buy just the nipples new?

Cheers. Its funny that you dont get them as they are constantly covered in a chemical thats highly corrosive and therefore wont last forever.
