You need 2 people, 1 with a spanner on the bleeder and the other to pump the clutch. fill the fluid canaster, pump the clutch, with the bleeder shut, then hold the clutch down then undo the bleeder, without releasing the clutch, allow the clutch to go to the floor air will come out, then tighten the bleeder, then you can release the clutch, keep repeating until you have a stream of fluid and no air, always make sure you have done up the bleeder before you release the clutch, and mke sure you have fluid in the canaster.

Bleeding manual clutch


is it a hydrolic clutch?? if so, near the clutch housing will be what looks like a bleed nipple, simlar to those on the brake system. basically check the fluid level is topped up, then with help, undoe the bleed nipple while someone pumps the clutch a few times, making sure they hold the pedal down before you tighten the nipple. repeat this until full operation of the clutch .

using a brake bleed kit will also prevent air getting back into the system. top fluid up as required while performing this process.

Almost every time a clutch is replaced in a GM with hydraulic release system that system is replaced as well. You can try, and try, and try again to bleed it, but you will eventually replace the clutch slave and master cylinders. Once the slave is allowed to fully extend, it is then virtually impossible to make it function correctly again.

LOOKING FOR BLEEDER VALVE


Are you talking about the clutch? If so, it is on the front of the cylinder under some wires and stuff. Its a pain to get at but do-able. I used a 1/4 inch drive ratchet and mid depth socket when I replaced mine and had to bleed the system. If your having a problem with bleed down of the hydrolics replace the master and the slave. I did just the master and ended up replacing the slave too.

Need step by step on how to bleed hydrolic clutch on a 1996 ford ranger


First remove the clutch reservoir top. Make sure the rubber stopper/bladder is in the cap when removed. Next locate the clutch line that goes into the tranny just aft of the bell housing. There should be a bleed screw, if so open it slightly. If no screw, than loosen the line where it attatches in. Next fill the clutch reservoir and watch till it leaks out on the tranny end. Once thats noticed, close the screw/line and recap reservoir. pump clutch pedal, and repeat bleed steps at least once more to ensure all air is out. remember to fill clutch fluid up to operating levels.
