How to bleed clutch?

Se we put a new clutch in my 2005 TJ with a 6speed.
The clutch pedal is now very weak. How do I bleed the slave cylinder? I don't really see a bleeder.

On my yj.(2.5) there was no way to bleed it according to the manual and Internet searching I did. It has a "self bleeding system". I pumped and pumped and pumped. Finally started to feel a little better. But took a few days to really feel right again. If you must bleed it you can loosen the line going into the slave and use that as the bleeder. GL.

Ok. Thanks.

If I pump it a few times it does fine. But if I don't pump it is really hard to get in gear.

You may have a leak if it builds up pressure then doesn't work later.

There is also a diaphragm in the master cylinder. If you don't remove it when you're bleeding it you'll never get all the air out.
