    Eezi bleed on clutch

    Tried time and again to get my clutch pedal back with the standard 2 man pedal-pumping method. Nothing doing.

    Are Eezi bleeds any good for clutch bleeding?

    Symptoms:
    Sticky gear changes (none at all now)
    Handbrake light came on permanantly last week (low fluid-right?)

    Any advice appreciated.

    could well be that you are leaking fluid from the clutch hydraulic system, are you having to top up the reservoir?

    Thanks for the reply Steve,

    yeah, the fluid level has dropped, and strangely it looks almost as though the take off point for clutch fluid is just above minimum level of the reservoir?

    Now I think there is an air bubble in the system, some of the fluid I bled last night was 'frothy', suggesting air.

    There has been some sign of clutch fluid appearing in the glovebox, I guess it must be travelling down the bulkhead somehow.

    New master bought off Ebay, £21. We'll see this weekend when I get to fit it.
