Hydraulic System Bleeding




WARNING
When bleeding, keep the facial area well away from the slave cylinder and protect all painted surfaces from fluid contact. Brake fluid will damage painted surfaces and could cause physical injury.

  1. Fill the clutch master cylinder with fresh DOT 3 brake fluid.
  2.  
  3. Have a helper sit in the vehicle.
  4.  
  5. Remove the bleeder screw cap.
  6.  
  7. If the system is empty, the most efficient way to get fluid down to the cylinder is:
    1. Loosen the bleeder about1234
    2.  
    3. Place a finger firmly over the bleeder
    4.  
    5. Have a helper pump the brakes slowly until fluid pressure is felt at the bleeder
    6.  
    7. Once fluid is at the bleeder, close it before the pedal is released.
    8.

NOTE
If the pedal is pumped rapidly, the fluid will churn and create small air bubbles, which are difficult and time consuming to remove from the system. These air bubbles will eventually congregate and will result in a spongy pedal.

  1. Once fluid has been pumped to the slave cylinder:

    Open the bleeder screw
     
    Have a helper depress the clutch pedal
     
    Lock the bleeder and have the helper release the pedal
     
    Wait 15 seconds and repeat the procedure (including the 15 second wait) until no air bubbles flow from the bleeder.
     

  2.  

Remember to close the bleeder before the pedal is released. If the bleeder is left open when the pedal is released, air will be induced into the system.

  1. If a helper is not available, connect a small hose to the bleeder, submerge the other end in a clean container of fresh brake fluid placed in a position that is visible from the driver's seat. Pump the pedal until no air comes out of the tube.

  7. If the system is empty, the most efficient way to get fluid down to the cylinder is:
    1. Loosen the bleeder about 1 / 2 - 3 / 4 turn
    2.  
    3. Place a finger firmly over the bleeder
    4.  
    5. Have a helper pump the brakes slowly until fluid pressure is felt at the bleeder
