What car?

If its an s3 then all you need is a 9mm spanner for the slave cylinder bleed nipple. If its an A3 then itl be the same or maybe an 11mm? Been a while since ive done one of those... None the less just basic tools

you can buy a bleeding pot from halfords about £5.

just slack off the nipple get someone to pump the clutch pedal until no air bubbles comes out then to the nipple up. top up fluid if needed

simple job
