Hey, I'm installing a new caliper and brake piston on the front passenger side wheel. Everything went well up until I needed to bleed the brakes. I cannot tighten the bleeder valve to close it and I also cannot get the bleeder valve out. It isn't stuck, it just spins in place. Maybe I screwed it in at an angle but I do think that the threads should still be fine - it's a new caliper.

If it won't tighten then it's probably stripped... your only option might be to swap it where you got it from, warranty exchange, or to use a larger bleeder and enlarge/thread a new larger hole. The first option is easier.

If it's a remanufactured caliper then it's not impossible to have come with damaged threads to begin with.

I'm with tenergy on this one. I'd take off the caliper, clean it up, claim ignorance and tell the auto parts store it was stripped when you went to install it. Not worth packing around with drilling and tapping new threads on a new caliper. Good luck
