Question about 1996 BMW 318
I changed the clutch slave cylinder on my 1993 316i bmw and now i have no clutch pedal at all theres a clutch master cylinder inside the car under the dash are the seals in this gone in this because if i try to bleed it no brake fluid is getting down to the clutch slave cylinder
You have to bleed the air out of it. If there is not fluid leaking from the master cylinder on the firewall.it can leak on the inside of car or the out side if the master cylinder is bad.first make sure the reservoir stays full then open the bleeder on slave cylinder. this is called gravity bleeding. once fluid comes out, tighten bleeder, pump pedal one time loosen bleeder while holding clutch pedal down and then tighten. do this repeatedly until no air comes out. you can pump pedal several times,then hold and bleed however you like but I have better luck with individual pumps. just make sure that the lines hooked to slave cylinder are tight and there are no air leaks. and that the line does not go below the slave cylinder because sometimes air gets trapped in the lowest part of system.
