What is the process of bleeding my VW hydraulic clutch?

I need directions on bleeding my hydraulic clutch.


Answer by  NateB (571)

There should be a zirc fitting near where the clutch and transmission meet. Someone pushes the pedal down, you unscrew the fitting then tighten it back down. Repeat.

Well, if you want to bleed the clutch then go to wikipedia and it will give you step to step directions.

There is a bleeder screw on the slave cylinder on the side of the trany. This process is done the same way as bleeding you brakes.

The easiest way is to push new fluid into the system and up to the reservoir through the bleeder screw on the cylinder. Sucking out the old as you go.

First we have to jack up the wheels one at a time to access the lines and loosen with wrench. Always check the reservoir during the bleeding process because if you run the reservoir dry this will cause air in the brake lines.

On the slave cylinder is the bleeder screw. Use a piece of tubing that just fits over the screw and put the other end in a container with an inch of brake fluid in it. With the screw loosened and the clutch master cylinder full slowly pump the brake. Tighten the bleeder screw and you should be done.

For avoiding loosen in access lines, we have to jack up the wheels. Then make reservoir dry to avoid air lock in brake line while bleeding action. Bleeder screw is in slave cylinder. Clutch master cylinders full in very slow movement with the screw loosened and pump the brake. Finally, properly tighten the bleeder screw according to your wish.
