Why Wont My Clutch Bleed?
had a bit of a baffled moment today. I've replaced all the brake pads and brake fluid on the GTV today.
Brakes went fine and got good clean fluid running through them now but I couldn't get anything to come out the clutch slave.
I mean nothing at all - so much so that I took the bleed nipple out completely and it was dry as a bone. Now the clutch works and operates as it should, albeit I think it does want bleeding up a bit, but for the life of me I couldn't get it to express any fluid at all.
What did I do wrong?
I had wife assistance so she pressed pedal, I opened bleed nipple and expected fluid to rush out, nothing.
Got to the point where I took the bleed nipple out completed and you could jump up and down on the clutch pedal like a crack addict at an illegal rave - not even a hint of fluid.
