  2. Clutch Slave Cylinder Bleed Nipple

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    In my quest to seemingly find evermore “2 minute” jobs to stop me getting on the road, I’ve found the bleed nipple on my clutch slave cylinder to be pretty badly mangled, and I want to replace it, rather than screw it back in with molegrips like the last person seemingly did! Does anyone know...

  4. 2.2JTS coolant leak - bleed screw?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Just had a big coolant leak. Looks like it might have come the top of the hose going from radiator to engine (see pictures) - from what I've read that hole is for a bleed screw. Found what looks like the top of a plastic broken screw in a nearby cranny. I'm no mechanic, but I'm putting two and...
  5. Gearbox issue/Clutch bleed?

    Alfa Giulietta
    I have a 2012 Giulietta 1.4 Multiair. I have an intermittent issue with my gearbox where it crunches going into second gear. It does this at very low speeds, and occasionally when I change into second gear at higher speeds. As an experiment, I've noticed it does this when I launch at 3000rpm. If...

  10. Spider bleed nipples

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    When my 1991 spider eventually returns from its engine woes I plan to change the brake fluid and obviously will be bleeding the brakes. At the same time I thought it might be prudent to replace the bleed nipples. Are they the same on all calipers front and rear? Are there stainless ones...

    Hi Folks, My clutch had to be pumped to get into 1st or reverse gear. We checked the slave cylinder and no leaks evident. We drained the master cylinder and found traces of black residue on the bottom of the master cylinder cup. The fluid was dark brown. We refilled the cup on a number of...

  15. No clutch. Replaced clutch master cylinder but no go

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    We've replaced the clutch master cylinder because my mechanic pulled it out and it had broken components, but then when replaced it's still sucking air. He got the clutch back but when he drove it back on the hoist it went again. He tried to bleed again and would get clutch then it would go...

  19. Why Wont My Clutch Bleed?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi guys, 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...
