Default *Urgent* Clutch Master Cylinder Bleeding Procedure


Does anyone know the correct way to bleed the clutch system on an early SL? It isn't like any other "normal" hyd clutch.

The hydraulic system on the later generations isn't user-servicable if I remember correctly (can't recall the years though). What year do you have?

None of the above. No part of the system is user service capable. When replacing any part of the hydraulic system, you get the ENTIRE assembly - master, slave, hoses, and dampener. Sorry dude.

On the plus side, it is cake to replace. pop off a clip on the back of the pedal, 2 or 3 bolts / nuts on the tranny end, give it a twist and it all comes out. dont even have to get under the car! Just pay attention to how you maneauver it out of the engine bay, I didnt and it took me 20 minutes to figure how to wiggle it back in there.

I wonder why my local parts retailer carries only the clutch master cylinder if the system isn't serviceable? Anyway, that matches what the manual says, I was just hoping that someone here knew a way to do it.

I appreciate it, fellas!



Not servicable? Damn engineers.
