OK MY HEADS BATTERED N REG VECTRA, STARTED TO BECOME A LITTLE DIFFICULT GETTING INTO GEAR SO ME THINKING I WAS CLEVER THOUGHT OH ILL JUST BLEED THE CLUTCH. SO THINKING SHOULD BE THE SAME TECHNIQUE AS FOR BRAKES I UNDONE THE NIPPLE WITH ME MATE AT THE PEDDLES... NOW THE PEDDLES HIT THE DECK AND I CANNY GET THE PRESSURE BACK ON. ANYONE GOT ANY TIPS ON HOW TO BLEED THE DARN THING...ALSO TRIED AN EASY BLEEDER.......HELPLESSS
jus had a look under the bonnet, seems pretty difficult to get at the cylinder, does the servo etc have to come off, hows that done? or is it done from inside the car.... when i pump the peddle, i can feel suction and blowing from the bleed nipple? is this right. i even tried connecting a master cylinder off a motor bike to the inlet tube from the resevoir and pumped it up but still got nothing out the nipple!!! is it possible to convert to a cable system... how would it be done?
ok people, erm no im not getting any fluid at all out of the bleed nipple, ive actually took the master cylinder off the car tonight, but not sure on how to check it for correct opperation. ive bodged a small resevoir up and held it higher than the cylinder, when i pump the it, nothing comes out the force side of it, is this right? not even slight suction, of expellation. but in ythe inlet side od the cylinder if i pup it u can feel it sucking and blowing... all help appreciated.,..... dont suppose any ones got a price for a new one have they!
Put it all back together. Fill with brake fluid, and bleed brakes.
When satisfied with them , move on to the clutch.
Don't press the clutch, just let the pressure do the work, and don't start the engine either.
No go ?
Replace slave cylinder in the box and the master cylinder, both at the same time (or take your pick and only replace one).
how do i check the master cylinder while its off the car tho.. as i said ive got it off and connected a resevoir uptp it but i get no fluid out of the cylinder when i pump it at all...any suggestions... this is really pi**ing me off now.
