    Bleeding a vectra clutch setup

    Just currently trying to bleed up my hydraulic clutch setup to make sure its ok and i have a few questions. I take it the clutch slave should not be movable when the clutch pedal is compressed? ie it should be fully out and solid. I am checking it all with no clutch or engine in the car.

    Yup, as the man said use the pressure easy bleed system, tried doing it without one at the weekend and it was a waste off time!

    These Eezibleed's make the job so much easier - We use these quite a lot at work when struggling to 'get a pedal'

    You may have to modify a cap to fit your fluid reservoiur bottle though

    You'll not be so happy when the slave starts leaking
    I didn't think the twin clutch was that heavy tbh, i think the majority of people who have cable probs have them routed incorrectly or have old cables perhaps? The one i have snapped in the past and have seen snapped always go at that little hook.....pedal side

    ffs don't bleed it off the car, you'll overstroke it and when you fit it, it'll piss everywhere.

    biggest warranty claim by miles at work is bled off car, overstroked piston, pops the seal out, fit to car, pisses all over clutch.

    we are going to need a new REJECTED stamp soon.

    Its in the car not out of it. I am having to set the throw of the pedal to make sure i have it all setup right when the box and clutch goes in.

    Yeah, but if it's not pressing against the clutch pressure, it'll overstroke.

    what i do is get someone to sit in the car and push the pedal down, hold it down as i undo very slightly the bleed nipple, then tighten befor letting the pedal back up. reapat 4-5 times and the pedal is ok. always works for me

    Yes, but eazibleed is a one man operation.
