How do you bleed a clutch on a Renault Master?
Bleeding Clutch between the bleed valve and hydraulic stop
- Push pedal down as far as it can go.
- Open bleed hold, a mixture of fluid and air bubbles should come out.
- Close bleed hole.
- Return clutch pedal to the up position.
- Repeat procedure until no air bubbles are left.
- Top up fluid to max mark on reservoir.
How do I get the pressure back in my clutch?
Open the bleeder valve and allow the fluid to run out until it slows down, while your friend maintains pressure on the clutch pedal. When the fluid flow slows, while your friend still has pressure on the clutch pedal, close the bleeder valve. Let the clutch pedal back up and repeat the process.
How do you bleed a clutch by yourself?
On your way back to the clutch pedal, check the fluid reservoir and top off as necessary. Hold the clutch pedal down with your hand as you remove the wood brace, then slowly release the pedal. When it is all the way up, press it down again slowly and reinsert the wood. Open and close the bleed nipple again.
What do I do if my clutch has no pressure?
If there is no leak, then there may be air in the clutch hydraulic system. I recommend bleeding the clutch slave cylinder and the clutch master cylinder. If you need further assistance with your clutch not working, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
