* Check to see if the spring is still attached to the pedal. Even if there is no pressure the spring will pull it off the floor board.

* Try bleeding your line.. The "fitting right next to the one that is connected with nothing on it" this is your bleeder line. Get a clear jug (1/2 a 2 liter coke bottle) a clear 1/4" tube about 12" long and a 1/4" wrench to loosen your bleeder screw on the end of the fitting that moves. And finally a few bottles of brake fluid. Once you have all this get a buddy to help ya out.

* Remove the cap from the master clutch cylinder behind your firewall and fill your fluid to the very top.

* Put 3" or 4" of brake fluid in your coke bottle place the bottle under the jeep near your fitting.

* Attach the 1/4" tube to the end of your bleeder screw. Shove it over the end as good as you can.

* Put the other end of the tube in the coke bottle. This prevents air from coming back in the line

* Open the bleeder screw this will only take an 1/8 or so of a turn. Fluid should start coming down your tube.

* With your hand start pumping the clutch (Have your buddy stand over the master cylinder dumping fluid in as it drops. If it gets to low it will suck air adding air to the line.) pedal while watching your line under the jeep. Pumping the clutch should force fluid down the line into the coke bottle. If there was air in the line you will see bubbles, keep pumping until fluid is clean and bubble free.

* Tighten your bleeder screw.

Now you’re done bleeding the line remove your hose fill your master cylinder to the correct level and screw on your cap. Good Luck!

If this does not work I would..

* Buy a new master cylinder from advanced or another parts store costs about 80 bucks. (Hanes manual from advanced will show you how to pull you’re old out and replace it) It was really easy. Then you will bleed your lines again. This is how I fixed mine when people were telling me I had a bad clutch and slave cylinder. Hope I explained it well it took a lot of research for me to figure out the best way to bleed your line.

jjseel On my '88, it was just like bleeding the brakes, pump and hold while someone loosens the valve...
