Ho do I bleed the clutch fluid? Where is the bleed nipple?
This is a classic sign of master cylinder failure as the seals wear does the peddle when pump fast build up to something like normal if the answer is yea new master cylinder it's reasonably cheap, the bleed nipple is usually under the car at the rear of the slave cylinder it's very easy to bleed the system on your own with an automatic bleed pipe, from any motorist store or a more expensive kit depending on your pocket, you can make your own by purchasing a length of rubber tubing that fifts tight over the bleed nipple push an old bolt or a piece of round plastic or something of that nature that fits tight in the end of the tube then get a Stanley knife and put a slit a 10mm long just above were you have inserted the plugged up end of the tube, when completed connect the open end to the bleed nipple insert the blocked end into a jam jar or some other vessel to receive the old fluid when you bleed, turn the bleed screw one complete full turn then press the clutch peddle all the way down to the floor and back up again do this slowly a few times until your sure all the air or clean fluid comes out retighten and that's it you should be up and running trouble free, remember the tube should be rubber not soft plastic etc. or it will not close up on itself when bleeding, and will let air back into the system. good luck
