I have 2000 S3, on that you look down by the left hand side of the battery, there is a small black plastic/rubber cap. take that off and the bleed nipple is just under that. it is just next to the gear change mechanism, towards the front.

As Ross has just said, look on top of the gearbox between the battery and the head, you'll see the hydraulic pipe (looks like a brake line) come in from the right. Close to this is a bleed nipple, usually with a rubber cap on it.

What does that do??

What, the bleed nipple?

The clutch is hydraulic and the nipple bleeds the fluid on the slave cylinder, which is just an actuator to move the clutch plate.

Ahh my pedal bites quite low, and always has done, (for the last year) would this make it move up a bit??

Not sure on that? Someone else may know. If you had air in your clutch line your clutch pedal would feel spongy. Won't do any harm to bleed it anyway.

Its dead easy to do, you can do it with everythin in place its just awkward.

Taking the airbox gives more access though
