Hi buddy if you just un do the pipes at the master cylinder to start with until fluid drips out ( Have a rag to hand to catch the fluid) do this on all three pipes on the master cylinder then try bleeding them again i would also recomend a gunson eazibleed kit it works off presure from a tyre to push the fluid through the system. Hope this helps Grant

Cheers i will try that im still unsure does the load compensator have to be unhooked when bleeding or can it be on as the car is pretty low when its connected its pulling it closed quite hard

you need to pull the compensator down to open it - not unhook it
