I was Bleeding my clutch on my 2000 Intruder 1400 and stripped the bleeder valve, how can I remove the bleeder valve now or bleed the system

U cannot bleed properly without first replacing entire bleeder valve. Cut out old one, solder in new one, and then bleed.

A mess.

How to bleed clutch 2007 compass


1. Verify fluid level in brake master cylinder. Top off with DOT 3 brake fluid as necessary. Leave cap off.

2. Raise vehicle on hoist.

3. Remove bleed port protective cap and install suitable size and length of clear hose (4) to monitor and divert fluid into suitable container.

4. Open up the bleed circuit by turning the thumb screw (3) counter clockwise this will start the air purge and fluid fill process.

5. Lower vehicle, but only enough to gain access to and fill the brake master cylinder. NOTE: Do not allow clutch master cylinder to run dry while fluid exits bleed port.

6. Top off brake master cylinder fluid level while air is purged and fluid drains from bleed port. Continue this until no air bubbles are seen and a solid column of fluid exists.

7. Close hydraulic bleed circuit, remove drain hose and replace dust cap on bleed port.

8. From driver's seat, actuate clutch pedal 60-100 times.

9. Apply parking brake. Start engine and verify clutch operation and pedal feel. If pedal feels fine and clutch operates as designed, stop here. If pedal still feels spongy or clutch does not fully disengage, excessive air is still trapped within the system, most likely at the master cylinder.

10. Top off brake master cylinder fluid level with DOT 3 brake fluid as necessary.


1. Remove reservoir cap and connect bleeder cap to reservoir. NOTE: Use Bleeder Cap/Modified reservoir cap adapter Snap-on #901-059 or equivalent.

2. Connect service filling machine to bleeder cap. NOTE: Use Service Filling Machine/Brake power bleeder Brake power bleeder or equivalent.

3. Service filling machine should be pressurized to at least 2.5 bar (36 PSI).

4. Remove dust cap from bleeder valve and connect the transparent bleeder hose to bleeder valve.

5. Place the other end of hose in the bleeder container to capture the used fluid. The end of the hose MUST be submerged in the DOT 3 brake fluid.

NOTE: Use Bleeder Container To capture hydraulic fluid and Transparent Bleeder Hose To route fluid to container.

6. Turn on the service filling machine.

7. Crack open the bleeder valve (3).

8. Allow fluid to flow out of bleed port until no more air bubbles can be seen in the transparent bleeder hose.

9. Once fluid is free of air bubbles; make 15 quick actuations between clutch pedal stop positions.

10. Close the bleeder valve and disconnect the service filling machine.

11. To remove remaining air, actuate pedal 10 times slowly between pedal stop positions.

12. Check clutch pedal to see if vehicle is properly bled.

13. If vehicle is not properly bled, repeat procedure.

14. Remove bleeder cap from reservoir and replace reservoir cap.

15. Disconnect transparent bleeder hose from bleeder valve and replace dust cap.

How to get back caliper piston to go in

Open bleeder valve and use a large c-clamp on back side of caliper and inside of brake shoe. Close bleeder valve when piston returns all the way home, then remove c-clamp. I've had a similar problem in the past...if you do not close bleeder valve before you remove c-clamp, you might introduce air into the brake system

My bleeder valve is stripped and the assembly is so rusted its almost impossible to remove the drum to change the cylinder

You can try some type of rust breaker and a vise grip to remove the bleeder. If the drums are worn, there will be a lip on the inner inside which will make it difficult to remove. You can try backing out the star key or you might have to crack the drum to take it off. You will need a new bleeder valve and a drum. Also make sure your emergency brake is not on. Good luck!

The bleeder valve is broken off. how do i replace it?

You can try a small tapered square shank easy out extractor, but you will probably need to drill the hole out a little in the broken bleeder first. Most auto parts stores will have easy out extractors, they don't cost that much and work pretty well. Soak it well with some good penetrating spray like PB blaster first. Good luck.

Steps on bleeding a clutch slave cylinder for a 1985 chevy Suburban

1.) fill resovior 2.) remove bolts connecting the slave cylinder to the bell housing, and remove slave cylinder (leave the line connected if possible)- if not remove line and then reconnect once slave is removed from bell housing. 3.) open bleeder valve on slave, if fluid starts to run out then let it run for 8 to 10 min (all the while keeping an eye on the resovior fluid level, making sure it stays relitivly full.) 4.) close bleeder valve. 5.) top off resovior. 6.) hold slave cylinder in hand, in some way that you can actuate the plunger rod, open the bleeder valve and depress the rod untill it stops, while holding pressure on rod close the bleeder valve. 7.) release the plunger rod. 8.) repeat steps 6. & 7. untill fluid running out of bleeder valve is a steady streem with no air bubbles. (check resovior appr. every 2nd time to ensure it dose not go dry. 9.)re-install slave cylinder and resovoir cap.

Spongy brakes after bleeding them 2 times. Should I try to bleed the master cylinder or replace it?

Honestly your guess is as good as mine. But I don't think the master cylinder is NOT bad you still have air in the system. Get a big bottle of brake fluid bleed all four sides until you run out of fluid or your brakes work properly. You should divide the bottle's content in four, then use each quantity in each side. You'll be removing air and contaminated fluid from the system. Get a small hose that fits on the bleeders and an appropriate container. I have a good feeling if you do this your brakes will work just fine. I don't know how you are bleeding the brakes. I'll let you know the proper way just in case. This is a two man job, with the wheel off, have someone start the car. Have them pump the brakes a few times to get pressure. 1With the brake pedal UP open the bleeder, 2then have your assistant press the brake pedal all the way down and leave it completely pressed down. 3Close the bleeder valve, once close and only with the valve closed have'm release the brake. Repeat as necessary, bake depressed, open valve first then press brake. DO NOT depress until valve completly closed. Close valve THEN depress. Good Luck!
