Bleed nipple size

Need help getting correct size brake caliper nipples part number apparently is 34118520872, tried that and no joy. Went another route which said size is m8 x1.25 16 mm but some on here mention size m10 any help appreciated. Looking to replace with stahibus valves. Also got a price for the sponge 15 from bmw this would need to have been sourced from rare coral reef at that price.

This may help you - I'm thinking you want to go to Speed Bleeders?

Re: Bleed nipple size

Can't help with the bleeders but I just bought a sponge for $23 USD. It sure seems like the same stuff as a lawn mower air filter. A lot for a sponge. The Mahle air filters were double the Amazon price at the dealer.

Just what the Speed Bleeder chart indicated. The code is the size - glad you are all set.
