Default BLEED THE CLUTCH??????


Hey guys I recently had to pull the motor on my 2001 sc1 and now that I have it back in the clutch has no pressure what so ever. I need to put more fluid in it that I know but before I do I figure I should bleed the line as it is probably full of air. Any help on how to do this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Adrian

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but an 01' clutch hydraulic system has no provision for bleeding. Your only option is replacement. Do yourself a MAJOR favor and get the preassembled, filled and bled system ASSEMBLY from SATURN. It takes 20 minutes to install and WILL work hassle free.

now are you saying that basically I am S.O.L and that I definitly need to replace it or can I just put some fluid in it and that might work as well?

Nope...you're probably SOL. For all the rest of you..BEFORE you pull the slave out of the bell housing. FILL the clutch master cylinder RIGHT UP TO THE VERY TOP AND use a bungee cord to tie the clutch pedal UP to the steering wheel. When you pull the slave, the fluid level DROPS DRAMATICALLY in the master cylinder as the actuator rod extends and will SUCK AIR leaving you SOL (as the poster) if you don't do this. Upon reinsertion, the level will rise back up in the master as the actuator rod gets depressed, you can then just siphon off the excess to prevent overflow AFTER you are done. This WILL prevent air from getting into the system when doing clutch or other work requiring you to pull the slave.

Allright so I think I got what I need. THa parts guy wasm't that stupid after all. He basically got me the master cylinder assmebly for the clutch. So now when I am putting it all in do I need to pull the slave out again to get the air out or what. If you could let me know the procedure so I don't mess it up again that would be just great..... thanks again

If you didnt already pay for the assembly from Saturn. Get ahold of Joey @ 6th planet used parts ( www.6thplanetusedparts.com ) he will give you a hell of a deal on the assembly. I have one on the way from him right now as a matter of fact! Make sure to tell him you are a saturn spot member for your discount!

Well I already got it. Paid 300 canadian for it so I probably got ripped off but oh well. I already found out how to install it.. actually after buying it and looking at it I realized how straight forward it was. Anyways thanks for the heads up on the discounted parts maybe next time I f*&k it up I can get it from joey for cheaper.

There is a procedure for bleeding the older style ones though isn't there? I could swear I saw I thread on it recently.

I'm pretty sure it's covered in the manual too.

Apparently, it's a bit of a pig to do.
