Mk1 Focus clutch biting point

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I know the biting points seem to vary on clutches but after I recently changed the DMF, clutch & slave the biting point has literally been just off the floor and its very easy to stall. I pressure bled the system but compared to the other focus's in the house the pedal seems a little sloppy for the first few mm of travel. Do you think there may still be some air in there? How long should I let fluid run through from the pressure bleeder too? There were no bubbles coming out. Can air get trapped anywhere?

I have not worked on one of these. I assume it has the modern concentric type of slave cylinder. I have read many reports of bleeding these being problematic and people saying it needs to be reverse bled (pumping fluid in via the bleed nipple). I am not sure if that is what you meant by pressure bled. apologies if that is what you have already done

Yay it is one of the 'in the bell housing' concentric slaves. Used a Sealey pressure bleeder from the reservoir. Looking at the system the bleed nipple is obviously above the slave so it would appear gravity has some place in the bleed. I don't see an obvious reason why bleeding from the back up would make any difference but I may try it just in case :)

This has stayed the same for months now. Drivable but just want to know about the sloppy pedal. :)
