I have a 2004 Fiesta Finesse which has recently been showing signs of a faulty Slave Cylinder. I had the master cylinder replaced a few months ago when the clutch pedal dropped to the floor and would not return. I read about the clip that holds the rod in place with the pedal (it wasn't that).
The car has been working ever since the Master Cylinder was changed and now I've lost all pressure my suspicions are that it was never the Master but the Slave. I recently bought a Vizibleed One Man Bleeding System from Halfords (£5.99) - http://www.halfords....ogId=10151#tab3 and have had a bit of success but lost pressure again. I used a brick to press down the clutch pedal all the way to the floor, opened up the slave cylinder bleed screw (Non tool requiring switch looking thing?), watched fluid enter the Vizibleed carton, closed the valve once no more fluid & air came out, then depressed pedal and repeated.
Can someone please tell me how to use this device correctly? I feel like I'm doing everything wrong...
Here's the method I've used in bullet point format :
1. Press pedal all the way to the floor, hold with heavy brick
2. Open up bleed valve and wait till fluid stops coming out
3. Close Valve
4. Release pedal back to up position
5. Press pedal to floor, hold with heavy brick
6. Repeat number 2
Is this correct? Am I meant to keep the reservoir cap off or on? Should the end of the tube that goes into the Vizibleed carton be immersed in fluid (it has a a ball bearing at the bottom to stop air coming back up in the line)?
I am so frustrated as I got pressure back and then lost it....
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
