Hello and thank you for choosing Just Answer.

It does not require bleeding, however if you must bleed it then you have to do it with a power/remote bleeder.

Hydraulic System Bleeding

The hydraulic linkage system is serviced as an assembly only. No maintenance is required. The individual components that form the system cannot be overhauled or serviced separately. The cylinders and connecting lines are sealed units. Bleeding or flushing is not required.

Fluid level will increase as the clutch wears. A level ring is provided on the reservoir. Level should not be above the ring. If it is, suspect an unacceptable amount of clutch wear.

Like I said, you cannot bleed the clutch system manually (No bleeder screw it's sealed). The only way you can bleed the system is by using a Power/Remote bleeder.
