    Hope you can help. Brake fluid needs changing so started with the clutch. I used a 20psi pressure bleeder and removed about 100ml which had air bubbles. Decided to stop as air still showing and tightened the bleed valve. The brake fluid resevoir hardly dropped. I now find that I do not have any pressure in the clutch pedal, it just drops to the floor so no clutch. What have I done wrong and is there anything I can do to correct this? A simple job has turned into a nightmare.
    Many thanks

    The pressure bleeder will replace the brake fluid that is pushed out (that is if you put brake fluid in the pressure bleeder). The level not changing is normal.

    Keep bleeding it till you don't see any more bubbles. You can also try the "helper" method, just make sure to give them a beer while they press the clutch while you actuate the bleeder screw.

    Cheers
