[Vwdiesel] Brake bleeding

I was bleeding the brakes on my rabbit the other day after replacing the
master cylinder.  I went ahead and replaced the brake pads while I was at
it...mainly because while I've been running it for 7 years, I've never
replaced the pads.

Is it possible that I've been running on original '84 pads?  They still had
the VW logo on them...and one of the cylinders (left front) bleeder valves
refuses to bleed, even when completely removed.  Any suggestions?
