Is the throwout bearing integral with the clutch slave cylinder? There should be a bleeder screw on the clutch slave, fluid is fed to the clutch master cylinder from the brake master cylinder reservoir. You would have to either use a vacuum or pressure bleed system and maintain full level in the reservoir during operation, or manually pump the pedal and open/close the bleed screw to purge any air.

There is no clutch pedal or as this is a fully automated gearbox and the on board computer changes the gears using solinoids etc the Hydrolic fluid to operate this gearbox is in the bottom of the gearbox if you google VW Crafter shiftmatic gearbox it will show you how this unit works but doesn’t show how to bleed the Hydrolic fluid after changing the thrust bearing which has a bleed nipple on the thrust bearing thanks Grant
