Question about Renault Megane
My clucth went to the floor and my mechanic says it cant be the clutch worn out, he tried to bleed from the top by the slave cylinder and he says there is not enough pressure on the fluid when the clutch is being depressed so he suggests removing the master cyl for inspection and can you explain a lil more about bleeding with the syringe where would i get
Slave cylinder can only be reached by removing gearbox. is brake fluid leaking from between gearbox and engine?

if you loosten the slave bleeder screw and push in the clutch pedal fluid should come out if not make sure someone holds down the pedal and tighten the screw then pump the clutch a few times and hold the pedal and open the screw if no fluid repeat a couple of times if still no fluid you need either a new master cylinder or just rebuild it( normally cheaper) and if you rebuild it make sure you flush all the lines of debris

i think youre doing the right thing. they are very stubborn to bleed because the hyd. line goes up high across back of engine before droppiing back down to slave cyl., trapping air. could try to gravity bleed by opening bleeder at slave, cap off of master cyl, full with fluid then it may start to come out after a bit. then try your process again. or can try to bleed at connections further up the line, working your way back to bleeder. hope this helps. be patient.

Best to get the help of a friend to pump the clutch pedal for you.
Take care with the brake fluid, as it removes paintwork !
Top up your clutch fluid reservoir, connect a bleeding tube to the nipple on your slave cylinder, and put the other end of tube in a container.
Get your friend to pump pedal 3 times, and then hold to the floor.
Open the nipple for 5 seconds or so, then close.
Repeat this about 6 to 8 times topping up the fluid as you go.
You should then find, that the air is out of your system, and your pedal is back to normal !
Good luck !
A FixYa rating would be nice.... Thank you ! John.

If you have had the flywheel cut, have a clutch with a different release height (different finger or diaphram design & height) or a remanufactured pressure plate, or all of the above, you may run into this problem.
Small differences there translate to a large difference at the pedal. On linkage type designs, there were several options including longer/shorter throwout bearing or adjustable fork pivot ball. Hydraulic systems should compensate somewhat, but if you are beyond the travel of the slave cyl, I'm not sure there is anything you can do from the outside. I would check that there are no air leaks. If you have an external slave cylinder you may be able to make a slightly longer rod that connects the slave to the clutch fork. I really can't think of anything else to do at this point.
Hope this helps a bit.

Take the top off the master cyl and slowly very slow push in on the clutch and watch for any bubbles comming up.Replace the top and pump pressure and bleed at the master direct by using the lines for bleeders.
