    Right,
    Replaced both cylinders and just wanted to know how to bleed weather it's pedal down or pedal up?

    pedal up and nipple loose, let it trickle thru under gravity, once fluid is seen at the nipple on the slave. then tighten the bleed nipple, leave the clutch pedal up for 10/15 minutes. pump the pedal up and down a few times. how does it feel? if not right. get your mate to hold the pedal down while you undo the nipple to get a squirt of fluid/air. your mate will now need to "pick up" the pedal off the floor. keep it at the top of its travel for 10 seconds and then work it up and down a few times. hold the pedal down again and undo the nipple again then keep at the top of its travel for ten seconds. repeat until its bled. keep topping up the fluid!
