You have to fit a flexible pipe (a clear plastic one is best) to the bleed nipple

Route the pipe into a glass container

Ensure there is enough brake fluid in the master cylinder reservoir

Open the bleed nipple half a turn

Depress the brake pedal slowly and release it, do this 3 times and then check the level in the master cylinder (top-up if necessary)

observe the fluid in the clear pipe and eventually into the glass container.

Keep depressing and releasing the brake pedal slowly, three times

Check the master cylinder reservoir is not at the min (top-up if necessary)

It won't be long until the brake fluid flows without bubbles into the glass container and at this point the bleed nipple can be closed.

Make a final check on the master cylinder reservoir level.

Citroen C3 Clutch fluid resivoir
Citroen C3 Clutch fluid resivoir
Hi

Is the pipe that is arrowed in the picture still attached to the brake and clutch master cylinder?

You need this pipe connected to get fluid from the brake reservoir to clutch master cylinder, then feeds the clutch slave cylinder.

Thanks for the answers but the problem is that the pipe that comes out of the tank has liquid but it does not reach the circuit I don't know why it causes and the master cylinder is dry forgive me for being so clumsy

The other end of the pipe (with the arrow in the picture) may not be attached to the clutch master cylinder?

The clutch master cylinder is faulty?

It is very confusing.

Brakes or Clutch?

The brake parts and clutch parts can share names when shortened ('cylinder' in place of 'brake cylinder' or 'clutch cylinder')

The original reply assumed you mean 'brake slave cylinder' but your later post mentions 'clutch'.

The reservoir has the yellow cap and this holds brake and clutch fluid for both the brakes and the clutch

The black pipe with the arrow feeds clutch fluid to the clutch master cylinder

The clutch master cylinder is attached to the clutch pedal

The clutch slave cylinder is attached to the clutch fork

The brake master cylinder operates the brakes and feeds the front brake calipers and rear brake slave cylinders

The brake slave cylinders are in the rear brakes.

That does sound like a faulty clutch master cylinder to me.

If brake/clutch fluid flows from the pipe at the clutch master cylinder when you disconnect it. Then this means the fluid is not passing into the clutch master cylinder.

Either the clutch master cylinder arm is not connected to the clutch pedal (so depressing the clutch pedal does not activate the clutch master cylinder)

Or

The clutch master cylinder is faulty and broken inside that stops brake/clutch fluid from flowing into it.


Why did the clutch slave cylinder need changing?
