    Default bleeding clutch line

    had to change out the slave cylinder yesterday. got it all back together without any issues but im having trouble bleeding the system. i filled the reservoir and left the slave bleeder open till fluid came out, then i pushed some air out having somebody push the pedal while i cracked the bleeder. im getting a pressurized fluid stream from the bleeder but the cylinder still wont actuate. what am i doing wrong?

    Probably air trapped in the master cylinder, same problem that occurs with the brake master. Remove the master, turn it over and fill through the outlet hole with a syringe.

    Could also be that the master cylinder is bypassing and needs replaced as well.
