Hi,I've just bought my daughter a 02 1.4 sx C4 with 96,000 miles on it. Unfortunatly no service history at all.I have serviced it and am changing all the belts etc .My query is where is the clutch bleed point?..The haynes manual suggests its on the actual brake/cltuch res..but I cant see it.
Any ideas?

Hi nikroc,

The bleed point for the clutch is on the clutch slave cylinder. Same for the brakes, each brake slave has its own bleed point.

The reservoir covers the brakes and the clutch.

Look behind the radiator, there is a small pipe going down to it and the bleed nipple should be covered by a rubber cap.

You can't beat using a decent brake and clutch bleeding tool (here) for these jobs.
