Hi Stew, You need an 11mm 3/8 or 1/4 drive deep socket, an appropriate extension bar, and mini breaker bar or ratchet. The bleed nipple is accessed through the same opening as to where the fluid line goes into the bellhousing area. Look into the opening with a light and mirror, you will see the nipple. Once you have selected the combination of tools you will use, 2 things to be wary of: 1 don't drop anything inside, 2 do NOT remove the nipple. Bleeding makes a mess of fluid, just flush some water through the same opening after you finished bleeding. Hope this makes sense and helps you. Gary
