Re: how to bleed the clutch
You just need one spanner..
on the side of the gearbox you should see a bleeder nipple.
get someone to press the clutch in and out at least 15 times and then hold it in.
whilst they are holding it in release the bleeder nipple a touch just so you hear air or see fluid.
then retighten make sure they dont release the clutch pedal until the nipple is closed.
repeat this process at least 5 times or untill your clutch starts working
and also keep the fluid topped up
if you get stuck let me know
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.
POWER BLEEDING CLUTCH HYDRAULIC CIRCUIT
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.
its made on clutch master cylinder under hood straight thru from clutch pedal fill it under hood take small wrench 5/16 I think get under vehicle find slave cylinder bleed valve you will need wrench a piece of vacuum hose and a cup put wrench on bleed valve then put vacuum hose on next the other end goes in cup of brake fluid to prevent air sucking back it can bubble air out but can only suck brake fluid back have helper pump clutch pedal hold pedal bleed repump rebleed till clutch gets right its harder to bleed than brakes pump fast hold pedal down pump clutch fast hold down bleed real pain in *ss good luck
See instructions below from autozone.com. If the clutch still has air after following this procedure, try back bleeding by pushing the slave piston in while the bleeder is open, then closing bleeder before releasing the piston. This is similar to bench bleeding the slave, in case you didn't do that before the installation.
HYDRAULIC SYSTEM BLEEDING
This operation must be performed any time the clutch master or slave cylinder has been removed or if any of the hydraulic lines have been opened.
Do not spill brake fluid on the bodywork of the vehicle; it will destroy the paint. If fluid is spilled, immediately wash the surface with plenty of clean water.
Fill the master cylinder reservoir with brake fluid.
Remove the cap on the bleeder screw on the clutch slave cylinder. Install a clear vinyl hose on the fitting; place the other end submerged in a clear glass jar partially filled with brake fluid.
Have an assistant pump the clutch pedal slowly several times. After several pumps, hold the pedal down and open the bleeder, allowing fluid to flow into the jar. Close the bleeder valve almost immediately after opening it. Release the pedal only after the bleeder is closed.
Repeat the process until the fluid in the hose contains no air bubbles. tube. When there are no more air bubbles in the system, tighten the plug fully with the pedal depressed. Replace the plastic cap.
Fill the clutch master cylinder reservoir to the correct level with brake fluid.
HYDRAULIC SYSTEM BLEEDING
The clutch hydraulic assembly has been filled with fluid and bled of air at the factory. Do not attempt to bleed the hydraulic system. While the unit does not require periodic checking, it must be serviced, when necessary, as a complete assembly. The system is full when the reservoir is half full.
Only DOT 3 brake fluid should be added to the system. If the fluid level drops, inspect the system, including the slave cylinder, for leakage. A slight wetting of the slave cylinder surface is normal. Fill the clutch master cylinder reservoir with brake fluid. Be careful not to spill brake fluid on the painted surface of the vehicle.
on the side of the gearbox is a filler plug about halfway up,then fill with EP90 ,bleeding clutch isnt a problem just do it like the brakes ,assistant inside to push and hold pedal down slacken bleed nipple ,then tighten and assistant lets clutch pedal up wait 5 seconds then repeat ,if its really obstinate then using a bar pushed into the slot for the clutch arm pull the slave cylinder right in and then bleed a few pumps and then pull bar out and try pumping the pedal and see what happens
It is most likely a hydraulic clutch, and it is most likely leaking at the clutch slave cylinder. Check the clutch master cylinder for fluid, it should be a small master cylinder looking thing with a fill cap next to the brake master cylinder and booster unit. If it is empty fill it with the same dot 3 brake fluid that you use for your brake master cylinder, and make sure that you are pouring the fluid into the clutch master cylinder reservoir and not the rubber seal that should be under the fill cap. After filling the clutch master cylinder up with fluid, then try and pump up the clutch pedal. It might take a while to pump up hydraulic pressure, and you might also have to work the pedal a few times by hand at first.
Also, you might have to bleed the clutch at the slave cylinder if it will not build up enough pressure to release the clutch.
first fill the clutch reservoir with brake fluid.get some body to help you.besure dont let clutch reservoir fluid get low during this procedure.get a clear vinyl tube.connect it to bleeder plug on slave cylinder.put the other end of vinyl tube in a container filled with half clean brake fluid.now get helper to open bleed screw on slave cylinder just a hair.now you pump clutch pedal 10 to 15 times.with out bringing pedal the full way up.do this until you see no air bubbles in vinyl tube.when all air is out.before tighten bleed screw make sure you keep slight pressure on clutch pedal to keep air from going back in line.when job complete clutch pedal fill firm check slave cylinder brake fluid level. check for leaks.you all set to go.
