    Hi, folks

    I fitted stainless steel bleed nipples to my 2003 CR-V today. The front calipers are M10 x 1.0 and the rears are M10 x 1.25.

    They were bought from CCS Fasteners and the only issue I had fitting was due to the nut being slightly closer to the tip. I had to tighten and loosen each one a couple of times to get a good seal.

    No more seized or rounded bleed nipples!

    Models after 2004 have larger calipers and discs so may need different ones. Here is a photo in case it helps you decide what you need:

    Hi mark
    Good job. I have done this on my bikes in the past due to the elements ravaging the metal. No further problems with stainless nipples.
