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!

    Sometimes. Maybe. Possibly.

    You need a new caliper, not that expensive.
