I bought a 2005 DS 1000S off craiglist that the previous owner laid down on the right side in his driveway. The rear brake was not working when I bought it. I brought it into the shop to get new tires and have them take a look at the rear brake to see if it was an easy fix. They suggested replacing the parts in the attached photo (Master Cylinder). I replaced these and then bled the brakes until the fluid coming out was clear with no air bubbles. Method I used to bleed the brakes; I would fill the reservoir, pump the lever a couple times, hold the lever down, open the release at the end of the brake line and then close it. The rear brake lever still goes all the way down like the brakes haven't pressurized if that is the right term? Any thoughts on what might be going on here?
