bleeding clutch.... have i done it correct???

when you bleed the clutch you push the peddle down turn the bleed nipple then let the peddle come back up on its own then tighten bleed nipple up?

just seen this http://evomoto.com/tech_info.php?tPa...70dcb9622f475b

link says pull up the clutch peddle??? i just let it come up on its own with the bleed nipple open? as at first when i opend the bleed nipple to let the air out and closed it back up the clutch peddle stayed down ?? (i thought it would of came straight back up) so i opened the nipple and the peddle started to raise up slowly....


have i done it wrong as it now even harder to get it in gear.....

I could be wrong, but with the bleed nipple open and the pedal raising up, aren't you sucking air into the system?

How does the clutch pedal feel?

Depress the clutch, open the bleed nipple and let the fluid out. Tighten the bleed nipple up, then release the clutch pedal. Step 3

And after you have put the clutch on the floor you will need to lift it up by hand as it will not come up on its own
