Well, heres 2 way of doing it. the first way requires 2 people to complete the task and is the way that your instruction manual proably says. youre gonna need 2 bottle of DOT3 brake fluid, one to fill up the master cyclinder, other one will have a tube in it connected to the slave cyclinder's bleed valve. suspend the bottle that is used for the slave up above the slave cyclinder. one person use a 8mm wrench to open and close the valve. One at the clutch pedal pumping. The person that is holding the bottle has to open and close the valve just a bit. until theres no bubbles in there and keep on filling up the master cyclinder.
Usually i find it to work better when the bottle is on the ground, sometimes it works better when its suspended in the air. Try both method.
2nd choice is, to go to a local hardware or a farm animal supply store, and get a large styrigne, and a tube that will match the styrigne and the bleeder valve and get 2 small hose clamps, the one that you can screw to tighten. connect the hose to the bleed valve and tighten up the clamp and samething to the styrgine. Make sure you have brake fluid in the styrigne and the hose before connecting it to the bleed valve. Then open the bleed valve and force the brake fluid into it but the master cyclinder's fill tank will overflow, dont worry about that thats normal cause youre forcing fluid into there.
I find the 2nd choice the best method for me.
But remember that theres no fluid in the hose or slave and master cyclinder cause you just replace those 2 parts right. so its gonna take a while longer and more brake fluid is needed usually just need one bottle but have 2 in case.
