here is the procedure to bleed the clutch.

  • Monitor fluid level in the reservoir tank to make sure it does not empty.
  • Do not spill clutch fluid onto painted surfaces. If it spills, wipe up immediately and wash the affected area with water.



  1. Fill the master cylinder reservoir tank with new clutch fluid.
  2. Connect a transparent vinyl hose to the air bleeder.
  3. Depress the clutch pedal quickly and fully a few times and hold it.
  4. With clutch pedal depressed, open air bleeder.
  5. Close air bleeder.
  6. Release clutch pedal and wait for 5 seconds .
  7. Repeat steps 3 to 6 until no bubbles can be observed in the brake fluid.
  8. Tighten air bleeder to the specified torque.
