I can't remember the arrangement on the GTV, sounds a little different to the last slave cylinder I changed. Do the bolts go through a bracket or the cylinder itself? If there's a bracket, I think the cylinder has a circlip to hold it in place (but, that might be a different Alfa model).
EDIT: in the http://www.alfaworkshop.co.uk/parts/...cylinder.shtml
that Mitch provided, it shows the V6 has the circlip type and the Twinspark has the bolts through the cylinder. So, you need to get those bolts out (as you were, then
) Perhaps it would be a good idea to start with a spray can of 'Gunk' (degreaser) and an old brush, clean it up so you can see? Paraffin and a paintbrush works well too. Not being cheeky, I'm serious
sometimes brackets for plugs etc. share the same mounting bolts as something else. Sometimes you need a ring spanner to get onto bolts and turn them one-twelfth of a turn before you turn the spanner over and try again...
Hope someone can clarify the setup for us.
I was going to recommend a Gunson's Eezibleed (pressurised cap for the reservoir), it does make bleeding the clutch easier. Otherwise it can be tricky to get the fluid through, I've found, but you might find it easy to pump the pedal a few times with a raised pipe connected to the opened bleed nipple and once fluid comes out free of bubbles, job done. So let's hope that part is easy!
