302 Z28 Tried that and several other suggestions the bits just walk off the harder material and gouge the surrounding aluminum.

A new caliper cost me some $$ and I still have that caliper with the broken bleeder screw.

Will a lefthand drill bit be of any help with the broken bleeder screw?

2old2fast Take 1 of the bleeder screws out & see if you can match up a longer version [I'd try napa] Same thread & taper w/ a longer body...

poncho62 Pull the hose off and tighten while holding the brake pedal down.

Inset Bleeder Screw

I wish to bleed my brakes and find that the rear axle has the bleeders inset into the brake cylinder. How does one turn the bleeder screw if a hose is attached to it (using a vacuum Bleeder)? There is no room for a wrench, only a socket, let alone enough room for the hose. I have never seen a set up done this way by an OEM. I believe that the rear axle is GM. I could do it the old fashion way and open the bleeder with a socket and have it leak done my arm and on to the floor, but that's messy. Any further thoughts?
