NOTE
Use only DOT 3 or 4 brake fluid from a clean, sealed container, for the clutch master reservoir. As brake fluid will damage the vehicle's paint, clean up any spills immediately.

  2.  
  3. Clean the reservoir thoroughly using a clean shop cloth or paper towel.

  5. Fit a flare or box end wrench onto the slave cylinder bleeder screw.

  9. Fill the clutch master cylinder with brake fluid.

  11. Open the bleeder screw and have an assistant press the clutch pedal to the floor.

  14.  
  15. Slowly release the clutch pedal to its fullest extension and recheck the reservoir fluid level. Top off as necessary.
