    Ho dear, it is good practice to prime the slave , but i guess they will know that?

    I just replaced my Slave cylinder, took a syringe and vacuum hose, opened the nipple on the slave cylinder and bleed the system from the bottom, 10 minutes and I was done.

    This is exactly what I did and worked like a bomb :D

    well got me car back yesterday with the new clutch in and it is different quite unusual to drive very bitey but i was told it would be different from stock just getting a bit of judder some times not sure if this is normal with an after market clutch but once its going its spot on I'm sure i will get used to it soon ;)

    Traffic friendly not really but maybe get better the more I drive it as for the engine mounts my car is a 1999 so would probably benefit from being poly bushed but can't afford it at the mo so will just have to put up with it . The clutch in with new flywheel and everything else has just cost me shy of £800 bummer this time of year just before Christmas :(
