Hi all, a quick first post hello before I start!

I have recently bough an 07' accident damaged fusion to repair for my dads girlfriend, all is going well, except the gearbox...

It has had a frontal nearside corner impact, all structural parts straightened and replaced, no probs there, but, also in that corner is the pump and ECU for the gearbox. The fluid inlet to the pump had broke off due to the impact, but I have repaired it and very well too, but, I need to know how to bleed the system, as I have had all the pump in pieces and the whole thing is empty. The symptoms now are, if you put it in gear, with my foot hard on the brake, it waits a few seconds, then tries to set off, then relaxes for a few seconds, and repeats this sequence. I can only presume it needs bleeding, as that makes sense, and there is a bleed nipple just next to where the output from the pump goes into the box, does anyone know the procedure?

Many thanks, Tudor...

Best way is to use a vacuum pump on the bleed nipple and suck the fluid through.
