This is not a bleeder hole, this is a weep hole like in a water pump to see when there is seepage past the seals.

Bench bleed the system. With the master cyl. line and slave cyl assembled, place the master cylinder in a vise, fill the master cyllinder. actuate the slave cylinder back and forth lower than the master cyl. This will allow the air to escape upwards back into and out of the master cyl.
Once bled the system can be installed.

Good Luck

I have not tried myself but see if the link below will work for your case. It is not the same model as you have but most vehicles have the same components for the non electronic parts.

Need to bleed the air out of the clutch line on a Toyota Previa... Where is the bleed

One is on the slave and one is on the clutch master cylinder.
Do the master first-at the bleeder or at the line 3 times.
Then go to the slave cylinder.
Do not pump the pedal-just old it down to bleed.
the slave may not have a bleeder screw- just crack the feed line to bleed it.

How to bleed manual clutch

If your slave cylinder has a bleeder screw like on the brakes, fill the fluid up and open the bleeder screw and let the slave cylinder gravity feed. When you get a steady stream of fluid tighten the screw. Once you close the screw pump the clutch petal a few times and hold it down on the floor and have someone open the screw slowly then close it. Do this a couple of times checking the fluid level between bleeds.

I replaced a slave cylinder on my 2000 Ford F250 diesel truck now I can't get the air to bleed off. A mechanic friend said to keep pumping the clutch but that doesn't help

Hi, if you didn't bench-bleed the slave, it can have trapped air away from the bleeder. What I do is to bleed the slave by pushing the cylinder in with the bleeder open (close the bleeder before releasing the piston). Depending on the type of slave, you can usually get a screwdriver between the clutch lever and the piston to compress it. You need to compress it fully to get the bubbles out of the bleeder port. OK?

Where is bleed screw on master slave cylinder

I guess if you could decide which you are talking about, the master or the slave, it could be answered. masters do not have bleed screws, slaves do. slave cylinders at the back wheels have bleeders which are on the inside of the backing plate, slave cylinder in the front caliper has a bleeder which sticks out the top of the caliper. clutch slave is a horse of a different color in a saturn. may have to buy a whole new master/line/slave assembly.

Clutch mastercilinder bleeding bmw 325tds how do you get brakefluid from reservoir to the slavecilinder. must it be pumped or will normal bleeding solve my problem

You can try regular bleeding by pumping pedal, also you can try a bleeding tool hooked to cylinder bleeder screw, and last a plastic bleeding siringe to push fluid through the bleeder screw into master, i would start with bleeding the master at the line first then go to the slave cylinder and if that doesnt work then try pushing fluid through bleeder screw into master.

Clutch bleeding

Try opening bleeder screw on slave cylinder and let it GRAVITY BLEED, just open clutch mater and fill with fluid and then open slave cylinder bleeder screw and let it gravity bleed( run out by itself) When it does close bleeder screw and you should get pressure.(make sure master doesn't run out of fluid during this preocess).If pedal not good enough bleed as usual. PUMP PEDAL ABOUT 6 time then hold down to the floor using wrench open slave bleed screw and close back up with pedal still being held DOWN. Repeat until fluid comes out with out air.However if all this doesn't work, YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE CLUTCH MATER CYLINDER. Conatct if you need more help and Good Luck. Thanks for using FIX YA
