540i clutch question?
 
Does removing the cvc valve from the clutch help with clutch response in 6spd 540i's?

I think you mean the clutch delay valve?

yes, it makes a huge difference.

O ya, I meant to get mine removed this past season.

what I really don't get is that people actually sell valves with the delay taken out. Who would buy one of these when you can just remove them ?

just remove it, it's not hard. I've taken 3 of them out. Even if you completely drain the master cylinder just fill it back up and pump the clutch back up.

Last one I did drained the master cylinder, pedal was dead, fill the brake master back up, pump the clutch and away you go.

You don't have to bleed the slave at all?

dcramer 11-16-2011 05:08 PM

Even if you did it's not difficult. Just put tubing on the bleed screw and open it. It is close to the master and will flow easily.


But no I didn't have to bleed it.

Be warned though you are going to get brake fluid on you. It will be pissing out when you open the line.
