Clutch Line Bleeding
Alternator Outer Cover (see Electrical System chapter)
With the reservoir cap off, slowly pump the clutch lever
several times until no air bubbles can be seen rising up
through the fluid from the holes at the bottom of the reser-
voir. This bleeds the air from the master cylinder end of
Tap the clutch hose lightly going from the lower end to
the upper end and bleed the air off at the reservoir.
Attach a clear plastic hose [A] to the bleed valve on the
clutch slave cylinder, and run the other end of the hose
into a container.
Bleed the clutch line as follows:
Pump the clutch lever a few times until it becomes hard
and then hold it applied [B].
Quickly open and close [C] the bleed valve.
Release [D] the clutch lever.
Check the fluid level in the reservoir often, replenishing
it as necessary.
If the fluid in the reservoir runs completely out any time
during bleeding, the bleeding operation must be done
over again from the beginning since air will have en-
tered the line.
Repeat this operation until no more air can be seen com-
ing out into the plastic hose.
Do not mix different grades and brands of fluid.
