Hydraulic System Bleeding
The following procedure is recommended for bleeding the clutch hydraulic system installed on the vehicle. It is recommended that the original clutch tube, with quick-connect fitting be replaced when servicing the hydraulic system, because air can be trapped in the quick-connect fitting and prevent complete bleeding of the system.
- Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
- Clean the dirt and grease from the dust cap.
- Remove the cap and diaphragm and fill the reservoir 3 / 4 of the way with approved brake fluid C6AZ-19542-AB or DOT 3 equivalent fluid (ESA-M6C25-A).
- Loosen the bleeder screw cover from the slave cylinder and attach a hose to the screw.
- Place the hose in a container and slowly pump the clutch pedal several times.
- With the clutch pedal depressed, loosen the bleeder screw to release the fluid and air.
- Remove the hose and tighten the bleeder screw.
- Repeat this procedure until all the air is removed from the hydraulic system.
