Hi all,

Bled the brakes on my 639 but they're now 'spongy'. Did them in in the following order; right rear, left front, left rear, right front. When finished, fluid ran 'clear' for each corner so expected solid brakes. Started the engine and pulled off slowly but it became apparent that to get any kind of braking force I needed to pump the pedal.
Just as a sanity check, have I missed something? Could there be air trapped somewhere else or do I need the ignition on while I'm bleeding them??

All help appreciated at this stage!

if it had the old bosch pads on the front they would go spongy for a couple days then come good. if it has the brembo fronts I'd be checking for seized slide pin on the front calipers
