  • deltasdawn6 The above will bleed the line. But if you find your self with no Firm Pedal,yet no air bubbles either, then you need to bleed the slave/actuator. To bleed the clutch/slave/actuator:.... Top off the fluid, Put cap on (not tight), just covering the opening. Start the car/Vue, Keep car in neutral. pump pedal Full Strokes, for about 5 minutes.. You will feel pedal inside that time frame. Continue till pedal is firm. You do not need to Rebleed the air in the line.
