trouble bleeding my clutch the lines

I am having trouble bleeding my clutch the lines run to this cylinder piece on the inner fender and nobody i have talked to knows what it is does anyone no what it is?

I have replaced the master cylinder and slave cylinder and still went through a whole bottle of brake fluid trying to bleed out this clutch

Re: trouble bleeding my clutch the lines

that's the clutch damper. i have no idea WTF it's purpose is, but plenty of people delete that and just run a straight stainless line from the MC to SC.


which method of bleeding are you using?
pump, hold, open/close valve, release

orrr




pump pump pump pump pump pump pump, hold, open/close, release

Re: trouble bleeding my clutch the lines

wow I didn't know we had dampers in our cars. I just help my friend remove his in a 240. But from what i understand, the damper makes clutch engagement feel easier. So im guessing with it, you don't get actual pedal feedback from your clutch (correct me if im wrong). Also when we removed this the clutch got stiffer.
You should take some pics of whats going on.

Re: trouble bleeding my clutch the lines

easiest way to bleed clutch line. need two people obviously. crack open bleeder. push pedal to the floor. close bleeder. open again push pedal to the floor. x 3 more times. then pump for as long as you can to build up some pressure. then hold pedal down and crack bleeder.... continue until there is no more air coming out. if this takes way longer to build pressure.... you have a leak. retighten all fittings to make sure all are sealed. then try the procedure again... and dont worry bleeding clutch lines... SUCK.

Disagree. Easiest way is to get a one man bleeder valve from one of the "cheap car places" Attatch hose to bleeder, other end to the one way bleeder valve, pump a few times, top off fluid, seal it up. I recommend people buyin one. Made my life alot easier!

Re: trouble bleeding my clutch the lines

This may not be the correct way but after long hours of frustration it works. I went through the same problem a couple months ago after replacing the cmc and sc, so i got frustrated and drilled a little pin hole on center of reservoir cap opened up the bleeder and took my compressor and slowly and i mean slowly blow air to evacuate all the air out the bottom through the slave cylinder.(before doing this follow the normal procedure of pump an holding the clutch down) The reason i did it this way is because of not bench bleeding the slave cylinder which cause a massive air bubble in the lines no matter how much you do the traditional bleeding.

Re: trouble bleeding my clutch the lines

its junk LMAO. it is a pressure dampener for the clutch line. makes your pedal feel nice and soft when you engage your clutch.

So I know I never post on here, but I have to ask: Does anyone have any first time knowledge of this mod? How does it feel without it?

Thanks,
Dave

Re: trouble bleeding my clutch the lines

The pedal vibrates a bit more, and is slightly stiffer.
