E30 Delima.. clutch bleeding.
After replacing my complete braking system. Calipers, rotors, pads, brake lines, i decided to switch out my clutch slave cylinder and bleed it while iam doing the rest.

i bled all my brakes, now comes bleeding the new slave cylinder. All i did was take out the two bolts holding the SC and the fluid line connected to it and replaced it with new one.. Now when i tried bleeding it the pedal just slams all the way and has no pressure what so ever. it was workign properly before the new one.

Any input would be appreciated. Checked to see if there are any leaks and everything is working properly.

I did this recently. There is a bleed screw on the end of the slave that looks like the caliper screw. Connect everything together and pump the clutch pedal a few times then hold it to the floor. Have a partner release the screw. Fluid or air will come out.

Close the screw and pull up on the clutch pedal with your foot. It will not come up on its own. This draws in the fluid from the resevoir. Pump again 5 times or so and repeat. Keep an eye on the fluid level while you do this.

i had the same issue.

solution: jack up the back of the car so the fluid is over the hole in the resevoir that leads to the clutch.

problem was from the bleeding screw on the slave cylinder. even tho it was brand new there was air leaking from the screw.

all good now .
