Bleeding My '99 996 Clutch

Recommended Posts

Was studying the DYI on the clutch bleed. If I'm reading it correctly, it sounds like you open the bleeder valve and the beginning of step 2, then pump the clutch for 60 seconds, press the pedal down and hold it...all this with the bleeder valve open? I'm thinking like I would on bleeding brakes, and would think this would allow air into the system. This is my 1st clutch bleed, so this might be an elementary question. So am I reading correctly? Open bleeder and do the remainder of step 2 w/the valve open until Loren says close at the end of step 2?

I've read some people say bleeding the clutch makes a significant improvement in clutch performance. Would you agree? I bought my car w/59,000 miles on it. It now has 70,000 and I don't know if it's been replaced.

DO NOT pump the clutch with valve open. If you are bleeding it manually, pump a few times and hold to floor. Open valve and then close. Repeat as necessray.

A pressure bleeder works very well. Connect to resevoir, set to about 15 - 20 psi and bleed.
