Just replaced suspected defective brake caliper. Found out the fuel hose had collapsed. Replaced that also. When attempting to bleed the brakes on the right side, there is no brake fluid exiting. Disconnected new hose from the metal brake line and still no brake fluid. Pedal is extremely hard to move towards the floor. Comparatively when the bleed screw is opened on the left side, the brake fluid gushes out as it is supposed to.

I'm wondering if the problem is with the ABS unit or if the ABS relay could have anything to do with this or whether a clogged line may be the problem. (I don't want to replace the line if it's not the problem).

Any ideas on next steps, tricks etc. are appreciated.

Thank you.

Ron

When bleeding the brakes make sure the master cylinder is absolutely full . Visually inspect that the front section of the master cylinder has fluid. What i am telling you sounds silly but it is harder than you think to fill the master properly.
