Hold in the lever while you open the bleed nipple let out the air & fluid & close nipple quickly b4 releasing the lever!!!
now let the lever come back & do it all again keep repeating the process until you have only fluid coming out of the nipple!
& dont let the fluid get tooo low in the reservoir!!!!!!
it helps if you put a clear peice of tubing over the nipple & the other end in a glass jar with fluid in it so that air cant get back up the tubing!!!!
you can buy a kit at most auto stores! [ single bleeding kit]
when no air in system close nipple pump lever ti build up pressure
the open nipple & close it again quickly!
let thhe lever back & let it rest so the rber inside can regain its seling capacity!
you may need a few tries ta this part! [pressure bleeding]
then it should be fine! if not try pressure bleeding from the start!
but dont agitate the fluid as it creates mor air bubbles!
ok good luck
cheers rob

How do i bleed clutch on fiat dublo


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.

Clutch reservior went dry. I could not shift. How do you fix this.


Any evidence of leaking frorm the clutch lever area or lines down to the clutch? Remove the cover on the clutch reservoir and fill. squeeze handle slowly to see if there is bubbles or fluid spray. Will most likely have to bleed the clutch. Bleed is on left side lower end of the clutch hose. Squeeze clutch lever several times and open the bleed. Close bleed and do again. When you get good solid flow of fluid, should have a good clutch. Look for leaks.

My clutch is not angaging need to see how can i bleed


Hydraulic Clutch System BLEEDING The clutch system can be bled using a pressure bleeder. Follow the instructions that come with the pressure bleeder for the proper pressure bleeding procedure. The maximum line pressure while pressure bleeding must not exceed 36 psi (248 kPa). NOTE: To bleed a clutch manually requires the assistance of a second person, a section of hose that is compatible with brake fluid (preferably clear) and fits the slave cylinder bleed screw snugly and a container to catch the fluid that is bled through the system. As brake hydraulic fluid easily absorbs moisture, always use fresh fluid when bleeding a hydraulic system.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. To bleed the system perform the following:
    1. Top off the hydraulic fluid reservoir using a fluid that meets the standards of the vehicle's hydraulic system.
    2. Open the clutch slave cylinder bleed screw and press the clutch pedal to the floor and hold the pedal down.
    3. Close the clutch slave cylinder bleed screw.
    4. Release the clutch pedal.
    5. Check the hydraulic fluid level and top off as necessary.
  3. Repeat the above steps until the discharged fluid is clean and no air bubbles appear during the bleeding process.
