Question about 2002 Ford SVT Focus
You need to bench bleed the master cylinder. You can gently clamp it in a vise and fill the reservoir with fluid and get a section of brake line to attach to the outlet port and then curl back around and be submerged in the reservoir fluid. Then simply pump the cylinder until the bubbles stop.
Many times if you are careful and the fluid in the line is still standing up to the top, you can put it together and see how it feels. The key is bench bleeding the master cylinder. Some come with bleeding hoses in the box.
Worst case, after installation, you can simply bleed the slave cylinder taking care not to run the reservoir low and **** air again.
Not sure if your car has a bleeder screw on the slave cylinder, but if it doesn't, attempt method 1 first.
