When replacing the banjo bolt, bleed it just like the caliper. Close the bleeder, pump the brake lever/pedal, hold, crack open banjo, release air, tighten banjo, release lever/pedal. If it gets really frustrating, try the backflush, or try the hanging caliper method, take caliper off & hang it from the roof so that all the air rises to the caliper overnight.
