Ok, Brakes and Clutch bled, gathered 600ml of manky fluid, which was the colour of Guinness,
Firstly i bled the clutch, very simple, i had an old brake fluid bottle with some fluid in it already and the cap with a hole in it with some clear tubing going into it that was the correct size to fit over the nipple.
Secondly i fitted the clear tube over the clutch slave cylinder bleed nipple and pulled the pin up and pulled the hose out to one click, i then got my assistant to push on the pedal and hold it at the bottom whist i pushed the hose back in, i repeated this until i was confident that the fluid was new/clear before i finished.
then i started on the brakes, i started furthest away from the master cylinder, so it went, N/S/R, O/S/R, N/S/F then O/S/F... the fluid in the rear was very dirty, it looked like Marmite. i had to use some white rag behind the clear tube to see clearly that all the brown gunk was flushing through...
having done this the brakes feel a little better after a short drive and the clutch felt a little funny at first when i drove it, almost like it was ultra sensitive and i could feel every movement all the way from the clutch (if you know what i mean) sorta like a vibration when i get the biting point on the clutch, but after a short drive the gear changes were smooth as i lubricated the gear linkages on top of the gear box.
Oh and i used Petronas Tutela Top4 in the end.
