Does anyone know how to bleed out the clutch fluid in the Z? I checked my clutch fluid the other day and it looked contaminated. I want to bleed it out and put in new fluid with higher boiling points. I crawl underneath only to discover that the fluid line goes to the top cover of the clutch assembly. There is no bleed valve anywhere. I read the owner's manual and it said that the cluth system is self adjusted.
For what I understand, self adjusted system is one that comes with the whole thing (clutch master cylinder, lines, hydrolic pump, and all accessories) in one piece with no bleeding valve. On my old Toyota, I change out the clutch master cylinder without changing out anything else and there was a bleed valve near the transmission. I had also seen on other car where you go and buy a clutch master cylinder, they will sell you what they called a self adjust system, which comes with everything.
Is this the case with the Z06? If so, can I just suck the fluid out of the cylinder and add in new fluids? If not, Can anyone show me how to bleed this system?
