    hello Gents,
    i have bought dealertool software so i can bleed my front brakes. I am happy using the software but i have never done the brakes before.

    Has anyone got any pictures or video or step by step instruction on how to do this.

    Apologies in advance if this is a topic that has already been covered to death.

    regards,
    Ian

    it would appear that my local triumph dealer cant bleed the brakes either as they are struggling to get a seal on the system. All the brake callipers have been overhauled with new pistons and seals put in. It would appear they just cant get the front brakes to work properly. 

    They have only spent all day on it.

    Sometimes we do not focus only on one point and do not think that we can have the problem elsewhere.

    Have you had the oil tank sealing diaphragm checked? It could be that the diaphragm and even the cap is deformed and that it takes in air.

    Also the condition of the piston of the master cylinder assembly located between the brake lever and oil tank and finally. The ABS modulator.

    My dealer has finally fixed my brake problem. They found that the brake seals supplied from World of Triumph did not fit properly and so a tight seal was forming. I have been charged for a replacement set of seals at approx. 60.

    I believe that i should be entitled to a refund from them because clearly they were not fit for the role they should have carried out.

    The dealer said i should just put it down to experience which i almost told him to $$$$ off for. if a part doesn't work and it is brand new then i think that Triumph are clearly at fault.

    Any ideas- do you agree or disagree?

    "World of Triumph" are just the Trading Name of a Triumph Dealership -
    "Lings" ( PFK Ling Limited ), with their Parts distribution centre in Norfolk.

    They sell "Genuine Triumph" parts.

    If you bought Parts from them, and another Triumph Dealer has identified
    that they are faulty, then depending when you bought them,
    you may be entitled to a Refund under the Consumer Rights Act, 2015.

    This Web Site has some good information : "Which" guide to Consumer Rights Act, 2015

    Have a read of the above and armed with that information I would contact World of Triumph,
    and see what they say - You may find they are extremely helpful, and might actually appreciate
    knowing of this, in case they have a faulty batch of these Seals !

    In Law, your recourse IS with the Retailer who you purchased the Faulty parts from,
    and not with the Manufacturer.
