Yep!! Take it along to Quick-Fit!! After last nights programme they will be paying people to come and park their cars on the fore-court to make it
look like nothing has happened, and its business as usual.
Fat chance of their business returning to normal for quite some while, especially after the spurious statements the Management put out when one could see the truth on film and the bunch of rubbish they came out with.  jocolor

You don't need a brake bleeder for a hijet, just use the pedal pump method and gravity bleed method.

I dont want to sound patronising but if thats a question mine would be " are you sure you wouldn't be better off getting someone to do it for you?" Hijet bleed nipples are shite too, start spraying WD40 now to hopefully not snap them.
Going by the sudden loss of pedal and its return I reckon it's the master cylinder thats away.
Also check the actuator rod isnt loose, shouldnt but as its adjustable if it slackened off you would habe long pedal travel.

I agree with Logi very likely to be master cylinder as I had it happen on my SRX-6 and I didn't deal with it and the result was a broken leg I was fairly lucky to get away with just that, but that said I would bleed the brake lines to see if any air pockets came out first.

As I said on the other post, this is a master cylinder fault of some sort.

And by the common agreement I'd say its a pretty good bet.
