Re: Brake Problem Diagnosis
Nope, never had a hydraulic clutch before! How do I do that?
It seems okay though.
Edit: Okay so I now realise the second photo I posted with a green not is the clutch master cylinder. It's connected by a tube to the brake fluid reservoir so I presume it uses the same fluid. The clutch master cylinder then connects by a hard pipe to the clutch on the gearbox and there is a small in-line plastic box between that pipe and the transmission housing. I assume that second tiny box is the clutch slave cylinder.
I see no bleed nipple near the slave cylinder so I guess as I read in another thread I need to just pull it off and have someone depress the clutch to bleed it into a little bottle. However this will only bleed the pipe-work, won't air get into the transmission housing like this?
