Well hello again I'm having some problems I took off the old break pads which were held on by the two pins and 1 spring that goes up into the pins. I tried to push on the rear brake and nothing just the foot level goes all the way down any advice? Or did I do soMething wrong?:cool:

bleed brakes and if that doesn' fix it check to see if the pistons in the calipers are stuck. If you pushed super dirty pistons back in the calipers it isn't that good for operating. But since you say the pedal goes all the way it's not making sense for anything but air compressing instead of fluid.

The rear brake is easier to bleed than the front, just open the nipple connect a clear hose to it, using your hand push the brake lever down to watch the fluid run thru the hose to get the air bubbles out of the line. When the fluid is steady close off the nipple and top off the brake fluid. Good luck
