You can remove the lower bolts on the dust cover and the socket should roll right out if you use a screw driver to hold the dust cover open a little

SOURCE: I replaced the clutch master cylinder and the braided brake line in a 2000 camaro ss and I'm trying to bleed the system. I know how to do it but I've done the procedure 20 times and there is still no

Assuming the replacement clutch master is not defective, you may need to replace the slave cylinder located at the transmission. Bleeding of the clutch system is done at the slave cylinder. Hope this was helpful.

I have an 88 ford ranger that has a 1998 tranny and i need to know where the bleeder screw for the clutch is. Please help for my safety

ford run two types of slave cylinders on their cars
one system is the slave cylinder out side the bell housing and the bleed screw is on the hose end of the cylinder
the other is an integrated system inside the bell housing and there is a bleed hose that is terminated in the bell housing wall as a bleed screw if you have clutch slave issues with the second type , it requires a box removal for repairs
get a workshop manual for your vehicle from a auto parts shop and follow the bleeding instructions

So I just changed the clutch master cylinder and the braided brake line in my 2000 camaro ss and am trying to bleed the system. The routine I'm using is typical. Pump the pedal 30 times keep it depres

you have someone helping you right? cuz you cant do it yourself, and the brakes need to be pumped only enough to get a solid midway stop of pedal travel, and with the brake still depressed by your assistant, you open the bleeder a bit until the pedal goes to the floor, you tighten bleeder, they then release brake pedal and pump it up again, rinse, repeat, until there is no spongy feel in brake pedal

Adam: fill the slave cylinder resivour with fluid attach a bleeder hose to
the port have someone pump the clutch pedal u ntil fluid runs thru
without any air bubbles in it depending on the amount of air in the line
and NO other leaks this may take a few fills.

Bleeding clutch master cylinder. How and where is it located

the master cylinder is the one you put the fliud in, it is the slave cylinder you bleed, this will be located on or near the bell housing of the gearbox.
to bleed you need a friend to pump the clutch and holed it down while you open the bleeder valve on the side of the slave cylinder to let the fluid come through, shut the bleeder screw and pump the clutch again, you may have to do this a few times b4 the fluid comes through, when you get a constant flow of fluid coming through shut the bleeder valve and pump the clutch once more, you should have clutch pressure now

Air in clutch

under the car at the transmission bell housing is the slave valve, on that there is a bleeder screw, loosen that bleeder and have somebody press on the clutch then close bleeder, keep doing that till you have a steady stream of fluid, make sure to keep the master cylinder container full.

Clutch pedal stays 2 the floor on a hydralic clutch system on a 2000 camaro v8. clutch master cylinder is new also slave cylinder and clutch and pressure plate

Did you bleed the system? When you replace the the master and/or slave cylinder you have to bleed the system just as you would with brakes. There is a bleed screw on the slave cylinder. Open the bleed screw, have a helper depress and hold the clutch pedal down.Tighten the bleed screw, then release clutch. Repeat this procedure until you have removed all air from the system and the clutch pedal is firm. Keep an eye on the fluid level to avoid sucking air into the system. If you have done this, remember there is a possibility that the master or slave cylinder is defective.

I cant get any pressure on the clutch peddle how do you bleed the slave thanks andy

Providing the slave valve is external on your car and not inside the tranny bell housing, there is a bleeder screw on the valve, have somebody press down on the clutch while your opening the bleeder, then hold the clutch down and quickly close the bleeder. Keep doing this until all air is out of the system.
Make sure you keep the resevoir full of fluid. Dot 3 brake fluid.
If that doesn't cure the problem, you might have a bad clutch and/or pressure plate.

Clutch goes to floor will not engage

The bleeder is located on the slave cylinder at the bell housing of the transmission. Follow the clutch pressure line down to the bell housing, and you will find the bleeder. To bleed the system properly, you will need to have someone push the clutch in, and hold it until you open the bleeder, and close it again. Repeat steps until you have a good solid clutch pedal. Make sure to not let the fluid level in the reservoir get too low as it can **** in air, and you have to start all over.
