      How do I bleed the clutch?

      On to my final steps... not sure how to bleed my clutch as this is my first hydraulic clutch car. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Bleed valve is under the air box.

      Be sure the reservoir is 100% full because there's a little wall in there that isolates the clutch port. Basically if your clutch dumps the fluid your reservoir doesn't go empty. But if you don't fill it all the way you'll just pump air through the clutch and it'll never bleed. I spent an hour my first time before I figured that out.

      My clutch line keeps popping out of the trans bleeder port... i did what the guy said in the video but when I go to engage the clutch it feels solid and about halfway the line will pop back out even after it’s snapped in...

      I think there should be a retaining clip, a little wire ring. You can see it in his video. If the ring is there, you have to either push really hard to snap it in, or release the ring a little to get the line pushed in and engaged. If the ring is missing, you need to find one.

      Just taking credit for this video since I made it

      And yes it sounds like you are missing the retaining clip.
