Bedding Clutch


Recommended Posts

no, as you are still using the same clutch. the bedding in procedure is only used for new clutches. but it is recommended you bleed the hydraulic clutch line after the sort of work you've done

Bleeding the clutch is definitely not a $185 job. Surely you must have a mate who is a bit mechanically minded to help out.

This should be an easy fix unless the slave cylinder is inside the bell housing. Two people should be able to knock this over in about 20 mins for most cars I can think of.

bloody hell that is a rip off!

save yourself $180 and do it yourself, it really is simple.

get some clear silicone tubing ($2 at an aquarium for a metre or two) and an old coke bottle or make a bleeder bottle (i'm assuming you know what this looks like). put the hose over the bleeder valve on the clutch slave cylinder, and open the valve slightly (using an 8mm flare wrench) until the fluid starts to run out slightly.

once this starts happening, go into the car and start pumping the clutch pedal manually with your hand. you need to do it by hand as the pedal won't return by itself. keep doing this until either the fluid runs clear or no more bubbles come out. tighten the bleeder valve until it's snug (or to 8Nm if you're anal), and you're done!

it's definitely not a $180 job. i can bleed the clutch on my car in about 5 mins, if that.
