Just to let everyone know a trick I found that really did work.
I was experiencing serious problems with my front brake and needing new pads - fine, I replaced the pads but the level was acting like I had air in the line - Arghh! I hate bleeding brakes.
But, somewhere, I don't remember exactly where, it said that if you pump up the brakes and hold it, they will at times get rid of the air - sure enough, it worked. I am very happy.
Just thought I would share the trick if everyone didn't know of it.
