There's a bleeder screw on the slave cylinder that's bolted to the trans. It works better if you attach a clear hose to the end of the screw and funnel it into a coffee can or something. It just like doing brakes, make sure the clutch resevoir is full, then pump, pump, pump, hold, and have someone loosen the screw, when it stops spitting, tighten the screw, top off the resevoir and repeat until only fluid runs from the clear hose.

You should remove all of your fluid and replace it with new stuff before you do bleed so you can already bleed new fluid into it.

well my exp has been it takes 2 to bleed the system one in the car the other on engine bay. the one in the car pumps about three times and the fourth time holds down the clutch pedal. do not raise the foot. the one on the engine bay opens the bleading valve and while the valve is open pull towards the front the clutch fork arm till u fully press the slave cylinder. then close the valve while making pressur still on the clutch arm. donot let go of the arm and tell the person in the car to pump again the cylinder will push your hand till fully extended please continue to make pressure till slave cylinder is fully extended . do this till when u open the blead valve and a steaddy streem of fluid comes out.
