Make sure you remove all the old fluid from clutch resevior and clean it out properly.
You will need to raise the vehicle on a hoist or atleast 4 cat stands .
you will need 3 people in total to get the job done correctly.
fill the clutch resevior with new fluid.
get someone to stay under the car to open slave cylinder to release air.
someone to seat to drivers seat to pump clutch pedal.
and someone at resevior all the time to top up fluid.
when bleeding system just pump the pledal slowly when the person bleeding slave cylinder says hold.hold the pedal down with light pressure when the slave is open you will get air and then little fluid .
repeat process until just good flow of fluid comes out ,once this happens you should have a good pedal..
hope this helps you
I don't claim to be an expert on this, so see if you can get other opinions.
I think what you have to do is empty the brake reservoir, including sopping up the fluid on the surfaces. I would probably suggest putting clean brake fluid in and using that to "rinse" the inside of the reservoir.
Then, go to each wheel and bleed completely until all trans fluid is out and only brake fluit comes out the bleeder.
I'm not sure, but I think a mechanic has a system to pressure bleed the brake system, call one to get an estimate.
The slave cylinder on the transmission flywheel housing has a bleed screw. Fill the clutch reservoir on the master cylinder to 'max'. Have a friend depress the clutch pedal and keep it pressed. Open the bleed screw half a turn to release the air and then lightly re-tighten the bleed screw . Ask for the pedal to be released then depressed fully again and held there. Again release the bleed screw half a turn to release air bubbles. Keep repeating the above cycles until no more air is forthcoming and then tighten the bleed screw firmly. Your done
Low fluid level in the pump resevior due to a leak at a hydrolic cylinder allowed air instead of fluid to fill the cylinders.
I then removed the pump from its mounting and elevated it as high as the connected fluid lines would allow, removed the plug,filled with trans mission fluid to within a 1/4" of the fill hole. Then cycle the top pausing at each end for 15 seconds to allow air to purge from lines & cylinders.
Recheck fluid level and plug fill hole.
Note: As of 1/18/2010 the cylinders for this model were on nationwide backorder and 300 request were in front of mine at the dealer level.
Good luck with your search for parts.
Take the master cylinder off and bench bleed it, put it in a vise, fill it, put your thumb over the hole, sqeeze the lever. Move your thumb slightly to let the fluid/air squirt out until only fluid comes out, no air. Reinstall keeping it full of fluid, try and let the fluid gravity feed down the line, watch the fluid level, could take a while. Retry bleeding.
You will have to bleed the rams to get all the air out just crack the hose's open at the connector and have a person help you open the hoses on both sides and try raising the bucket when you get clear fluid coming out close the nuts on the lines then do the same thing for down position. Check hydraulic fluid level to make sure it does not get so low that you put air in the system. Be sure when you are bleeding to pay attention to fluid flow coming out of the rams is it even? If not you may have a hose that has collapsed. To know if it is look at how much fluid flows out of the hose the one with the lest amount of oil is suspect. Next if it still does not raise pull the pressure valve out of the control Block where the arm is for raising it crack the outer locking nut then remove the valve and see if you have a piece of dirt in the valve seat.

Just a thought.....air will rise. If you put plenty of fluid in the clutch res... lock it down......and you put the bleeder valve higher than the reservoir....(tilt the wheel you are bleeding in the air) won't the air go to the top...........?????...just a back words way of thinking of it..........hmmm mtg
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.
