I am new to the forum and I am happy that such a forum exists.
My son and I have been working on his 1995 325is with a good amount of success. We replaced the control arms, replaced the brake pads replaced the cooling system[water pump/radiator] among other things.
Now I have hit the proverbial brick on this one. The clutch went out. We towed the car home. I decided to bleed the clutch slave cylinder. Parked the car in the garage over night-no leaks. Filled the reservoir with extra fluid.
We pumped the clutch to build up pressure. As I normally do with brakes I did the slave cylinder. I saw air come through the tube. Several more times but not pressure at the pedal. That's strange. Released the bleed screw and saw more fluid come through. Locked the screw, now we should have some pressure, no pressure. Now when the clutch pedal is depress it stays on the floor. Wow, talk about dead in the water. Maybe the car should be running during this bleeding procedure?
What am I doing wrong? This is a new one on me!
Thanks in advance for any help you folks can offer.
