    Clutch Bleeding.

    Hi
    I want to bleed the clutch of my Astra G but I am a litle confused.

    Hayne's manual describes the proceedure in a conventional way. i.e. if using a pressure bleeder you connect the pressurised fluid resrvoir to the master cylinder and open the bleed valve until fluid flows with no air bubbles present.

    Reading TIS they say this way should not now be used nor should any manual proceedure. They show a pressurised fluid container connected to the bleed valve and fluid bled from the master cylinder.

    Can anyone confirm which way is correct or are later models bled differently to earlier models?

    I would appreciate your views.

    I always use a brake bleeding kit on the bleed nipple just above where the hydraulic line goes into the box. The one I use is just the bit of pipe with the one way valve in the end and Ive never had any problems doing it that way
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it
