MarkieB Posted December 22, 2005 Share Posted December 22, 2005 I know it's not my Bleeding technique, as the brakes were Bleeding well, so it looks as though the Bleeding clutch isn't Bleeding proper Here are the symptoms: Clutch was getting progressively less effective, crunches/non-selection on gearchanges, unless it was pumped; 1, 2, even 3/4 times. At the end of a long drive the other day, while manoeuvring in the car park, I pumped the clutch say 4 times at one stage, it then reached a point [pedal halfway down] when it wouldn't go down further. The biting point was in a different place [higher up?] when I released it, too. On checking it before bleeding, it behaved similarly, although after several [dozen] pumps. I then opened the reservoir lid; after a few seconds there was a sound of sucking air/fluid, the fluid level, that had looked quite low for those few moments, suddenly raised, returning to 'normal'. So I think there's a big air bubble in the system, I proceed as planned to the bleeding. However, even with the bleed screw really loose, there's no sign of fluid emerging. Has anybody had similar symptoms; what could it be? For bleeding the clutch, I'm simply pumping the clutch pedal, although clearly the effect is different to pumping the brake pedal for bleeding, as there's basically less resistance? cheers Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
