Just replaced the clutch slave cylinder on my 97 155 2.0 16v and wondered if I correctly bleeded the system. Is a bleeding kit necessary? I just pumped the pedal a few times with the bleeder open until fluid came out. The clutch seems to be working ok but am afraid that I might have trapped air in the system.

Thanks.

If it's working okay then that should have done the trick. Normally you use a bleed kit or one of those rubber tubes with what looks like a nail stuck in end so that when you release the pedal, air doesn't get drawn back in.

Sounds like it is ok as it's working. The clutch pedal should become a little lighter near the bottom if its all ok. Hopefully the pedal feels the same as it did before you had trouble.

Thanks for the reply lads.

The pedal feels a bit different. Though, it could just be my paranoia. I might invest in a bleeding kit and rebleed the system (one day).

I've just done this job and the pedal doesn't feel right, it has a bit of stiffness about halfway down. Works ok apart from this but I plan to bleed it agian just to be sure.

I did it without a bleed kit and spent the next 10 minutes wiping the fluid off the car. :rolleyes: It dont half come out fast, I had a jet a good foot high.

Happened to me too - the jet hit the bottom of the bonnet and splattered everywhere!
