Question ZS180 bleeding clutch slave cylinder problem

Hi everyone i have just purchased a new hydraulic clutch slave cylinder for my zs180. it seem simple enough to fit as in unplug the old one and plug in the new one, but how do you bleed it all, i cant find a bleed nipple.

OE units are sealed.No bleeding without considerable messing

connect and see what happens. I think the cylinder is delivered already full of fluid...dunno for sure. You really should have gone for a Sheddist upgrade as the standard system is very poor.

Third time, how many miles have you had out of each one? Is a shame something minor like this have you thinking selling the car.

Maybe don't press the pedal so hard

The weld lasts for between 2000 and 4000 miles the slave cylinder is 125 inc vat and delivery ech time, and the bracket cannot be got from anywhere xpart and rimmer bros have had it on order for over 8 months and till cant get one, It costs an amazing 6 to buy but no one can get it even emailed other companies in europe and worldwide.
Going to just connect the slave cylinder today and play it by ear just dont want to damage it cant afford another 125 odd.

That bracket is rubbish, I had 2 hydraulics fauilures of OE stuff before buying and fitting the brilliant Sheddist kit.

Sheddist's kit uses Honda master and slave cylinders, but the bracketry etc is his own design.

Mind you, a mate and I had to have 2 goes at welding the drivers side left front seat mounting bracket which had pulled through it's standard mounting.
The thickness of the metal used had to be seen to be believed - I think i've had thicker Coke cans!!
