Hey everyone,
I'm a first time poster here but I've been following this thread for awhile. I have a 1994 Wrangler and I've been having some clutch problems. It only has just over 20,000 miles so I'm hoping that instead of my clutch going out, I can just bleed the system and hope that what I'm experiencing is a pocket of air. The problem is, I cant seem to figure out how to bleed the damn thing! Everything I've read says that there's supposed to be a bleed screw off of the slave cylinder. But theres no screw there. Just a port for a screw. And theres no screw on a brand new one either. Frankly, I'm out of guesses here. Any help? Its got the hydraulic clutch. Drives fine for an hour or so, and towards the end of an hour it gets nearly impossible to get it into gear. As far as i know everything on it is stock. Thanks!

On my 95 the slave and master cylinder is sold as a unit. I had just replaced mine a couple of weeks ago. My systems were, no free travel, sagging pedal and tough shifting. My assembly cost around 160 bucks and it was an easy 15-20 minute swap out. no way to bleed my old unit. All is good now.
P.S. my old one got worse as the hotter it got.

This will sound like a joke but it is real and successful. To bleed the new slave remove cap on master and service full. Leave cap off. Go under and remove the twits holding in the slave. Point the piston end to the ground and actuate by hand 20 cycles. Let hang go up look at the master, service as required. Repeat and final service. Install slave and cap the master.

The air actually will rise to the top with the slave pointed at the ground. You may even see bubbles in the fluid at the master. Works trust ms.


And I told you sounds like a joke but was in my instructions with a new slave and no bleed port not even the kind with the set screw.

Thanks! Looks like that was the problem. Replaced the unit this morning and cruised around for about an hour with no problems. Seems to work great.
