I changed the left rear caliper and pads and I can't bleed the left rear? Is there a trick to bleeding the left rear, or is there some special I need to do? The right rear is fine, the car won't stop properly when driving. What can I do?

You have a helper pushing on the brake pedal when you open the bleeders? Is fluid coming out of the bleeders when you open them?
typically you will start at the right rear, then left rear, then right front, then left front. or work your way from the farthest bleeder to the nearest bleeder to the master cylinder. Make sure the reservoir does not go dry or you will have to start over.
It is possible that when you pushed the pedal to the floor the seals in the master when through some debris and where ruined.
Sounds like u need to replace your brake caliper on that side. It's engaging but not totally disengaging causing it to wear so fast. Replace the caliper and brake pads and have your brake fluid flushed. At the end make sure they "bleed your brakes". then enjoy many happy miles on the road my friend.
A good honest automotive repair shop will, bleed and flush the brake fluid for little to no cost. If your getting them to replace the caliper and pads.
When changing pads and you push the caliper in for the new pad you should open the bleed screws. , then close and re-assemble. press pedal and open bleed screw and let it drip a little . gravity bleed. Did you turn the read caliper piston in and then press it down? The rear piston must be aligned with the pad. Did you pump the parking brake to reset?
I have taken the brake caliper of the rear passenger side and renewed the seals in it i have also renewed the brake pads in that wheel i have tried to bleed it before renewing the pads in the outherside but when i open the bleed nipple and push the peddle down there is no braked fluid coming out i also renewed the nipple.When you take the brake pipe off the caliper ther is still no fluid coming out also there is no pressure on the pedal 1997 audi a4 1800
