Bleeding brakes and Load comp valve.

Also failed my MOT on little rear brakes on both sides. Load valve looks seized so better give that a clean up. Is the system bled the same as normal except for the o/s/r which is bled at the comp valve as it doesn't have a bleed nipple on the drum.

yes the system bleeds like normal as you say, ours I snapped the bleed valve on the load compensator and didi it all from the left rear depending on what you use I couldn't find my pressure bled kit so bled it the motorcycle way but couldn't get enough pressure to pump the air bubble through but a hose clamp on the flexi at the back pumped it up and opened the nipple and let the clamp off while the pedal was being pushed and this shot it through with a load of crap then it bled up as normal.

Cheers for the info. From what I can see the o/s rear feeds from the n/s rear. My problem is I can't get a reading from the o/s rear but the n/s is fine. wouldn't the fact that the n/s works fine mean that there shouldn't be any air lock in the o/s.

Don't know I have changed and bled more bike brakes than I can remember I've only done three partial bleds on three different cars.
