How to bleed to clutch on a kia rio
This should cover most models.
Bleed nipple is on slave cylinder beside inlet line.
Crack bleeder before fitting silicon tube and make sure free enough to back out 1/2 turns by hand, finger tighten again and fit 1-2 metres of 5mm internal diameter silicon rubber tube to nipple with other end in clear glass jar or bottle.
Ensure all fittings are secure, top up brake master cylinder reservoir. (this feeds clutch master)
Move clutch pedal about 50mm up and down slowly until fluid stops presenting bubbles. (you can have the jar in the car with you to see this happening Thus the 2metres of tube.)
Stop pumping when this happens - lift clutch pedal and tighten bleeder nipple with spanner.
Test if any air in line by pushing clutch pedal til stops and hold for 5 seconds release ans press again - measure distance when pressure is felt between 2 actions of peddle -they should be same. if not you still have air. repeat bleeding procedure.
WARNING - brake/clutch fluid is corrosive and melts paint and plastic. do not get it in your eyes.If spilt IMMEDIATELY wash with copious amounts of water.
