Default Clutch

this one is driving us crazy, the clutch wont bleed out but were having a problem finding the bleed port according to the dealer there's a 9mm bleeder screw some where on the slave/hydraulic line. we see a nipple with a rubber cap on the slave cyl but it doesn't have bleeder screw ( picture included)

isn't the clutch fluid shared with the brake reservoir on the ion? if that's the case, can't you just bleed the brakes?

Default Re: Clutch bleeding

The bleeder is at the transmission where the line goes into the bell housing.
Better method is to vacuum bleed the system from the master.
You do need a good air tight fitting do do this though.
