6.8 Clutch pressure bleeding kit in use
A Bleeding kit vessel
B Fluid supply connection at vehicle's fluid reservoir
C Receiving container connection at bleed nipple
D Compressed air supply from spare tyre
necessary until the ejected fluid is bubble-free.
10 On completion, pump the clutch pedal
several times to assess its feel and travel. If firm,
constant pedal resistance is not felt throughout
the pedal stroke, it is probable that air is still
present in the system - repeat the bleeding
procedure until the pedal feel is restored.
11 Depressurise the bleeding kit, and remove
it from the vehicle. At this point, the fluid
reservoir will be "over-full"; the excess should
be removed using a clean pipette to reduce
the level to the "MAX" mark.
12 Tighten the bleed pipe nipple using the
spanner, and remove the receiving container.
Refit the inspection cover at the transmission
13 Finally, road-test the vehicle and check
the operation of the clutch changing up and
down through the gears, pulling away from a
standstill, and from a hill start.
