: With any luck I can get some help before I pull my hair out. I did a clutch job on my 92 525 and as I was taking out my tranny, I disconnected the hydrolic line from the slave cylinder(dumb me). How do I bleed the system? The clutch pedal goes to the floor and stays. It has to be pulled up in order to have the clutch pedal in it's normal position. Did I let that much air into the system when I disconnected the line from the slave cylinder? Hopefully someone has some insight on this, I surley don't. Thanks in advance.
: I find Mityvac with optional fluid bottle very effective when bleeding brake and clutch systems. We get Mityvac kits from Sykes-Pickavant in UK but I think it is a stand alone braned in North America. You use it by drawing fluid from the bleed nipple & the fluid bottle catches the spent fluid before it gets into the Mityvac hand pump.
