    Actually, this is the correct place. THings do get mixed but the powertrain forum is intended to be for mods, upgrades, etc. while this forum is for maintenance and service. Clutch bleed certainly qualifies as service.

    It's been awhile since I've been under a WRX. I think the slave cylinder is on the side of the bellhousing. Easiest thing is to trace the hose from the clutch MC down. Once you find it you'll find a bleed nipple on the slave just like on a brake caliper. Put a clear hose on it, and have an assistant pump the clutch. Tell them to start pumping, open the valve, let the clutch go all the way down then hold it all the way to the floor and shut the valve. Repeat as necessary. Hope that helps. Be certain to keep the reservoir topped up or you'll have to start from scratch. Just like brakes, I like to put a loop in the clear hose near the valve to help with keeping air from going back in. Your assistant MAY need to pull the clutch pedal off the floor after you shut the valve or it may (probably) spring back on its own.

    The slave cylinder is rite on top of the beel housing almost under the intercooler.The easiest way to bleed the clutch by yourself is to fill the master cylinder, get a piece of vacuum hose that will fit over the bleeder of the slave cylinder put the hose on the bleeder and then put the hose into the bottle of brake fluid then lossen the bleeder with a wrench slowly begin pumping the pedal BY HAND about 4 times then check your fluid level in the master cylinder add as nesecary remember not to pump the pedal to fast or the vacuum hose could possibly blow off the bleader.
