 I was bleeding the brakes last weekend. One of the bleeders froze to the
 threads, so I snapped it while trying to unscrew.  >>
Group- This has yet to happen to me, but I have seen this problem on the list
many times. The next time I under take on a brake job I will begin applying
some kind of rust buster several days prior to the work. This is normal
procedure for me whenever I work on my boat trailer brakes/suspension that is
frequently in salt water. I usually wire brush the exposed parts first. HTH
