Problems bleeding the clutch hydraulics on E39

Lately ive been having problems with my clutch on my BMW 523 E39 from 96, and some days ago, the clutch would not disengage fully. So i decided to change the Clutch Slave cylinder, and now im trying to bleed the system.

First of all, i would like to say that right now if i press the clutch down, it stays down until i take it up again with my foot or hand.

I dont have any acces to Air tools, so i cant suck the air out of the vent, and ive been trying to bleed it manually, by pumping the clutch, open the vent, and then close and start over by pumping it again. It seems to work for some, and for some others not, which in my case, it didnt.

Anyway, i went to google which i hoped was my friend, but this time it wasnt my best friend on the internet. Though i did fint this link on youtube, and im thinking about trying this solution,: YouTube - Clutch Bleeding

Im really thinking about trying it. But i do hesitate because the brakes shares the hydraulics oil resouvoir with the clutch, and when im gonna pump from the Slave cylinders bleedingvent and then up the system i cant stop thinking about the brakes, will there come any air in them, and will i have to bleed the brakes after?

Sorry for the not so good english, but i hope you can live with it

Thanks in advance

^ yep gravity bleed it then manual beeding also if you remove the slave cylinder you can turn it upside down while bleeding some have found that to help also make sure to keep it full of fluid!
