did the front pads set into the caliper easy ? just using your fingers they installed and can be removed ?
open bleed screw and using a c clamp push back . then close bleed screw. fluid could be damaged.

We had a conversation a few months back about exactly what @j cat mentioned. It seems like manufacturers let their dies dull and the pad backings do not slide easily in the brackets. Many times you need to take a file and file the inner radius and the end of the ears on the pad ear to make them slide on the brackets easily. I have seen guys tap pads into place with a hammer and wonder why the brakes drag or stick
