Default Clutch bleeding

This might have been done in an older thread. I started to have problems shifting, And the clutch pedal went down with NO resistance. After looking at it for some time I decided to bleed the clutch before buying a new clutch. It now works fine.

theres probably a bleeder valve. you'd bleed it the same way that you bleed your brakes....that's my assumption anyways.

Yes to bleed the clutch there is a small nut with a spout on it (the bleeder valve) that you loosen right at the quick-connect on the transmission bellhousing. This is best done with 2 people, one watching and controlling the bleeder valve, and the other to push and raise the clutch. While the valve is open, push the clutch in (it will probably fall right to the floor and not come back up). You should see some fluid and maybe air bubbles comming out the bleeder. Now close the valve, and raise the clutch back up to its normal position (this may have to be done by hand). Open the valve and repeat until there are no more air bubbles comming out the bleeder valve. Pump the clutch several more times and it should return to its normal stiffness and feeling. You might need to top up the brake fluid after this procedure depending on how much was lost (the hydraulic clutch shares its fluid with the brakes).

I need to bleed the air out. Does anyone have a photo or diagram that shows where the bleeder valve is?

it looks just like one on a break caliper. I think it is on the side of the tranny where the motor and bell housing come together

I think this just happened to me, I changed the rear brake pads less than a week ago. For the past two days the transmission had been acting funny, it was sometimes difficult to shift into gear. Today on the way to work I was having trouble shifting, I had to pull off with my hazard lights on because I couldn't get out of neutral. I parked at work and couldn't get in to any gear when I wanted to leave. I laid on the floor and was looking to see if something had broke, I was able to push the clutch pedal in using 1 finger, absolutely no resistance. I had to bum a ride home and my car still sits in the parking lot. Any comments or ideas would be great...
