    Frankster 016 is right on the bleeding the clutch line bit--it is easiest to use two people or you can use
    a one-person brake bleeder and make sure that while you are bleeding the slave cylinder, you DO NOT
    let the reservoir go empty or you will have to bleed it all over again.  You stop bleeding at the 
    slave cylinder "bleed nipple" until you don't see any more air bubbles and the brake fluid is clear.

    Then top off the reservoir and recheck the pedal and it should not feel spongy.  
    Also, assuming there is air in the system and no other issues, how did it get in there?  If any part
     of the clutch master circuit or system is leaking--you will need to fix that leak and re-bleed the system.
    Otherwise, you will quickly become an expert on bleeding it!

    What is the actual symptom?  Does the clutch pedal feel spongy or stay to the floor?  How much fluid is left in the actual clutch master cylinder?

You will need to push the plunger on the slave cylinder at the trans all the way in when you bleed it! But 'never' push your peddle to the floor! Too late now. Right? When ever bleeding brakes or clutch, going beyond the normal travel can take a master cylinder beyond rust an ****, scoring the O rings! Frankster016

How to bleed the clutch on a saturn 97


one way to bleed it is by pulling the piston like slave cylinder with the rod out of the transmission and by pushing the rod into the slave cylinder several times, make sure you have plenty of dot3 brake fluid in the clutch master slave before you do this. by pushing the rod into the slave cylinder it acts like doing a brake job it bleeds the air out into the clutch master slave cylinder and sucks in the break fluid getting rid of all air in the system. thats the only way to bleed those systems seeing as they are sealed systems

How to bleed the clutch that has no bleeder screw or fittings what so ever? As it is hard to put in gear, cause its acting like the clutch is not being pressed in all the way?


If it has no bleed screw then you need to loosen the flange nut(that holds the pipe to the slave cylinder). Pump the pedal a couple times then hold it down. Loosen the nut till the fluid comes out. Fasten again. Pump and hold. Loosen etc.

Audi a3 1996 1.6 5 speeds model. 1st flexi clutch pipe split..no clutch replaced pipe now no gear change..could it be worn clutch? car is in garage! help tp


First you must air bleeding out from inside hydraulic clutch acting system ! On the slave cylinder you will find an aeration screwed ventil provided for air bleeding. See picture below:

ee99bec.png Two person are necessary for this operation. One person for acting the clutch pedal and another person for air bleeding out from inside hydraulic clutch acting system by unscrewing the aeration ventil from slave cylinder. This operation is difficult, and must spend some time for successful result!
