    Default clutch pedal really soft after new clutch

    just fitted a new clutch new dmf and new bearing
    bled the clutch system
    the pedal feels really soft and when i push it right down only then do i feel some resistance but its right at the end,

    have i done something wrong

    mind you i cant actually start the car yet there seems to be an issue starting it (no eml codes or any other codes) so it must be a battery issue as the cockpit continously flashes even though i can hear the engine being turned over it wont start at all (lights keep flickering in the cockpit dash)

    so if i could get it started i would know if the clutch is ok or not

    Re bleed it might need a pressure/ vacuum bleed as they can be a nightmare to bleed fully.

    did you drop the steering rack? Check connector is fully seated.

    and check all earth straps

    Just thinking theirs no guarantee that theirs a connector. just thinking most usually have an electrical connector on rack and it can prevent starting as a safety precaution.

    Is crank sensor ok? Is turning fast enough?

    Correct crank sensor will stop the car starting, I think the sensor is near the starter motor. That's your problem.
