Hi, I have recently renewed my front and rear brakes but there is no constant pressure in the brake pedal, I have tried to bled the front but still always need to repeatedly depress the pedal for effective, please help as this is no good in an emergency.

Do you mean pads only ,if so check they are moving freely in the slides ,you could try jacking up individual wheels and see that they lock when the pedal is pressed.Also check you have not kinked a flexi pipe.If you replaced discs then could be dirt on the mating surface causing the disc to sit squint.
