Yes, my last clutch was installed by my local mechanic, as I was too busy at work to do it myself. He had the job done in one day, but kept it for another day to bleed it some more.

It takes a few try's, so get some more fluid ready in case you need it.

I work on vws for a living so i own a powerbleeder of my own and found the vw fitting is the same as jeep(double check). i highly recommend this bleeder, one person can bleed a car in just minutes.

I ordered from here and have owned mine over 3 years and cant beat the price. just a great product.
