Deore m615 Caliper Problem

Hi 2.5 weeks ago i bought a deore m615 brake set.

Since then front caliper was loosing oil very slowly, yesterday i checked the bleed nipple and it was not tight so i tried to tighten it to no avail and screw kept spinning.

Then i unscrewed bleed nipple and saw that screw grooves on caliper got damaged also there was no o ring.

Is there a way i can get it to work?

    You could always go back to the person you bought it from and throttle them with the hoses. Clearly you have been done!

    You need a new caliper, not that expensive.
