Just the same as brakes.....open fluid reservoir, open bleed nipple at slave cylinder, have someone press the clutch pedal 4 times, and hold down on 4th stroke, close nipple..repeat process 3 or 4 times till you have clutch pressure, top up with fluid,and close reservoir

Check the level in the clutch master cylinder. If the fluid is brake fluid from the clutch cylinder, you will have to replace the clutch master cylinder. When bad, it is common for them to leak into the car and drip fluid on the carpet.
If you have the tools and so inclined, you can change it yourself. Not very hard,. 2 bolts hold it to the firewall, the pin or clip holding the clutch pedal rod to the cylinder (under the dash), then remove the steel line on the cylinder. (The steel line goes down to the transmission, to the little slave cylinder. After new master cylinder is installed, you need to bleed the slave cylinder to get air out of the lines.)

Just because the master is new does not mean it isn't faulty. If you are certain you have bleed all the air from the system, I suspect you got a bad master.

Just put in a new clutch master cylinder in and all the clutch peddle just pushes in so lightly and is not ingaging do you got to bleed the clutch


Yes, you have to bleed all the air out. There should be a bleeder on the slave cylinder for the clutch (the hydraulic unit that pushes on the clutch fork at the transmission). Start with the clutch pedal all the way up. Open the bleeder a bit and have someone push the pedal down slowly. When it is at the bottom, close the bleeder. Make sure that pressure is not taken off of the clutch pedal with the bleeder open or you will **** air in. After the bleeder is closed, pull the pedal back to the top and repeat until there is no more air coming from the bleeder. Be sure to check your fluid constantly and refill as needed through the procedure. If you let the fluid run out while you are bleeding it, you will put more air in the system and be back at square one.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

How to change a master cylinder


a Master rates about a 5 out of 10 with 10 being the hardest

you may find the hardest part is the actual bench bleeding of the master
and/or
the replacement of the reservoir

These are the instructions from my service manual, but I do not remove the fluid prior to service steps 2-6

  1. Disconnect battery ground cable. Disconnect electrical connector from filler cap.
  2. Remove fluid reservoir filler cap.
  3. Raise and support vehicle.
  4. Remove front wheels.
  5. Remove dust cap and loosen bleed nipple. Connect a bleed tube to bleed nipple and into a suitable container.
  6. Pump brake pedal until all fluid is expelled. Tighten bleed nipple.
  7. Lower vehicle. Install brake fluid reservoir cap. Remove air cleaner and air cleaner outlet tube.
  8. Disconnect central electrical box electrical connector.
  9. Remove central electrical box retaining screw.
  10. Remove central electrical box and relocate to air cleaner area.
  11. Disconnect brake fluid feed tube. Disconnect brake lines.
  12. On models with anti-lock brakes, disconnect brake lines from Hydraulic Control Unit.
  13. On all models, remove brake booster vacuum hose.
  14. Extract master cylinder from vehicle.
  15. On models with manual transaxles, remove clutch hose from brake/clutch reservoir.
  16. On all models, remove master cylinder nuts and remove master cylinder.

To install, reverse removal procedure. Bleed brake system.

Im having difficulty in bleeding a cluch o a ford


clutch systems bleed just like brakes, if you have an external leak at the clutch master cylinder, then bleeding will be difficult, it should be replaced. I use a two person bleeding system, I fill the master, crack the bleeder screw open and have my 2nd push the clutch down and hold it, then I close the bleeder and tell my 2nd to release the pedal, repeat until no air is present.

Ford focus st170 clutch master cylinder


To replace the clutch master, you must remove the under hood fuse box and air filter housing assm, then remove the hydraulic line that goes into the inlet port of the clutch master, then inside the car, remove the hush panel/knee bolster panel from under the steering column, and loosen the boilts that retain the brake pedal to the firewall, then remove the two 10mm bolts that secure the clutch master to the brake pedal assm. Reverse procedure ti install, then fill the brake master cylinder with clean fluid, loosen the bleeder screw at the top of the trans, and bleed the clutch as you would the regular brake system, but never pump the pedal, tighten screw, with foot off of clutch pedal open screw and press pedal to floor, then tighten screw before you release pedal, then release pedal loosen screw, etc. until no more air comes out, it may take quite a few times to fully bleed the system.

Sounds like air has gotten into the hydraulic clutch system, or it is low on fluid from a failed master or slave hydraulic clutch cylinder or connecting line between the master and slave cylinders.
