Hi guys having some problems bleeding my brakes as above, Bike is a 08 GT avalanche 1, had a trawl through the forum and on the interweb and found this link

Followed it to the latter but both brake levers can still be squeezed to the handle bars with no resistance.
Am I barking up the wrong tree following this guide for my brakes?
Both brakes worked fine until I replaced the brake pads, so I'm assuming air has got into the brake lines when i split the calipers?
Any help or advise will be greatly appreciated

    point 1 there is no need to split the callipers to change the pads.
    point 2 why follow instructions for a different make and type of brake?

    yes there will be air in the system.

    what fluid did you use?
