Clutch Slave Cylinder

First of all I wanted to say thank for any help I can get.
I had a leak on my slave cylinder so it was replaced however now ther is still no pressure on my system even after I refilled the reservior with fluid. Do I still have to bleed the system or is there something I'm forgetting or something I'm missing? I'm confused... please help with any suggestions.

If I remember correctly, yes you have to bleed the system. Good Luck.

How do I spell relief?!?!?!

If you replaced the slave the best way to bleed the system is open the bleeder valve on the slave and leave the reservoir open and let the fluid gravity bleed itself (wait till fluid starts dripping from slave) then start the pressure bleeding procedure.At this point you should have some kind of pedal pressure. Then just pump the cluthch and hold down then open bleeder valve. Repeat these steps a few times untill you achieve the right clutch pedal pressure> And thats all there is to it!!!
