Hi, my name is ***** ***** sure you have all the air out of the system? How did you bleed it?

these do not have a bleeder screw on the slaves, how did they reverse bleed it????

They had a air powered vacume tool

from the factory, the master and slave come as one unit and it is a sealed unit, you can buy the master cylinder seperate from the parts stores, but the slave and master have to bench bled before installing it, it cannot be bled while on the car,Tim

I don't understand why please explain why. the mechanic bleed it from the master cylinder with a reverse vacume gun and I watched the air come out.
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 3 months ago.

that will not get all the air out, there will still be air in the slave cylinder, the slave and masrer and the line going between them have to come out in one piece, and then put the master in a vise and let the slave sit on the floor, then manually pump the piston in the maser in and out about a half inch, repeat his until no bubbles come out the mster and then let it sit for 10 minutes, then repeat as neccessary , then reinstall the master and slave, this is the only way to get the air out,Tim

Did you bleed it like I said too? did you take the master and slave off and bleed it on the bench?
