It's on the slave cylinder. Looks identical to a brake bleeder.

now you need 2 people to bleed the clutch BUT you can do it by yourself which is 100x harder.

first: unscrew the 8mm bolt (just break it open. you dont have to take it all the way out. just one good turn will work fine.)

second: push the clutch pedal down and hold it there. (it may stay anyways but sometimes it wont until further into the bleeding process.) if you let the clutch pedal pop back up then it will suck air into the system which is not good. but if you do then repeat this process until all the air is out.

third: tighten the 8mm bolt.

fourth: pull the clutch pedal back up

fifth: pump the clutch pedal a few times

sixth: repeat the process until satisfied.

hope this was helpful. rep wouldnt be minded ;)

there is no rubber nipple its just a screw off kinda of thing. a tiny socket would make it easier.

and dont let the clutch fluid resevoir get empty, you might fudger up your master cylinder.

if you wanna pay that money man. just get an 8mm deep well socket, put it on your ratchet, find a cheater pipe and go to work on it. remember righty tighty left loosy lol
