I agree Leo is a good guy and a great certified tech, he is one of the few guys who I trust to do a good job, I have great faith in his brake bleeding abilities, like others have said there must be a leaking seal or something else going on here, and he did get the bolt out, I know he is a busy person, and like myself I dont always get my calls/texts, and sure as dont live and breathe MH, sorry about the experience that U think was bad, I have learned over the years there are usually 3 sides to a story, yours, his and then the real truth, I gave up trying to make everyone happy, and I also know no good deed goes unpunished, life goes on

I don't know that I have ever seen so much crying. This tread need to die. Spend less time crying and learn to fix your yourself. Then you can complain about your own skills or lack there of. Geez I know who I would'nt offer any assistance to.

still need a brake vacuum? ask your girl. oh wait she dont put the breaks on when she vacuums. my bad.
but all in all glad you got it fixed, but these things can happen, nothing will last forever so if a part/seal, or whatever just happened to go bad during this time the work was done. it happens.
