    Default At a loss, cclutch bleed problem, vectra C 2006 1.9cdti

    Try to bleed the system after replacing clutch, csc & flywheel.
    Pedal goes to the floor with no resistance. proved the master cylinder by disconnecting feed at clutch end and fluid comes out when pedal pumped.
    Connect everything up and try and bleed and nothing, just doesn't work. No apparent leaks, level in reservoir not dropping.
    Tried conventional 2 man method and a vizibleed thing from halford (which I'm not convinced is working).
    I'd appreciate opinions.

    That's where my thinking was going, I went out yesterday to get an Eezibleed and went for the cheaper option, serves me right I suppose. I'm sure it's just the trapped air in the csc that's the problem.

    Got an Eezibleed and it sorted it immediately, so my lad gets his car back on Sunday having had the clutch, csc and flywheel changed for the princely sum of £325 for parts (including a Haynes manual) and a few hours of dads goodwill, spit, expletives, blood, sweat & tears instead of the £1400 quoted by his local Vauxhall stealers.
    An entertaining project that I won't tackle on a gravel driveway again and very much different to the last clutch I replaced on a 1973 MK1 Ford Capri.

    Best tools I had to buy for the job? Definitely the Eezibleed (should have had one years ago) and 6 concrete blocks at 97p each to get the car in the air.

    Now..... what can I take to bits next..... ;-)

    Many thanks to Tugger for his splendid 'how to'.
