where to bleed slave cylinder?

4 cylinder, Haynes says bleed screw should be on the right side of the transmission, I see nothing there remotely hydraulic. On the driver's side there is a plastic tube (looks more like a vacuum line) that goes into a thicker tube. It has a hex type screw in the plastic body of it, but nothing that looks like a bleed screw. Where is the bleed screw? Thanks.

Should be on the driver side on top of the slave if external. Passenger side if slave is internal. Which one do you have?

Edit: That thicker tube you are referring to may be your slave and I believe that hex screw is the bleeder if it is an external slave. The Hydraulic line going from the master to the slave is made of some type of hard plastic..

yes it is external I guess there is no dust cap or anything you can put a tube in while you bleed it?

Bleeder

If it's never been changed, there is no bleeder screw. The hole is there, but the stock slave has no screw. It's a sealed unit. Found out the hard way and changed both Master and Slave so I would have a bleed. But the Advance Auto Parts units. They are metal, not plastic like the competition.

Not sure if they made different ones but mine is a stock slave and its off a 98. This one has a bleeder on top of the slave..
