    Shayne if you have the 24 valve engine you don't have the servo booster but a none adjustable spring booster under the dash by the clutch pedal. First thing to do is bleed the clutch. The reservoir is too small really for bleeding and it's very easy to run it dry and suck air again.

    Actually how hard can it be , there must be a bleed nipple under her somewhere i assume . Things are not going well , i threw 15 quid in the bin today coz the mrs couldn't spare 30 seconds to hold it for me so i could see where it needed to go :icon-neutral:

    There's a bleed nipple on the slave cylinder. Ideally you need 3 people. One to pump the pedal, one to hold and control the bleed nipple and another to keep topping up the reservoir. I kept running the reservoir dry and sucking air thus going round in circles.

    IIRC, the clutch on mine virtually self bled, the master is at a level above the slave and there’s no ups and downs in the system.
    If the clutch disengages, I’d suggest there was no air in the system.
