How To Bleed Qashqai Clutch

Post by beast900 » Mon Feb 22, 2021 6:04 pm

Hi all,

I am hoping someone can help me out incase I am doing something wrong.

Last week the clutch on my 2011 Nissan Qashqai 1.6 Petrol appeared to have failed and I had the pedal stuck on the floor with no pressure at all.

After spending the last few days looking into this, I thought it maybe the Master Cylinder at fault so I have replaced it.

However I am still experiencing the same problems as before, so wanted to check I am bleeding the car correctly.

I have connected a clear tube to the bleeder nipple on the Slave Cylinder and moved it to the bleed position.

I have filled the reservoir with Dot 4 and have removed all air bubbles.

I lock the pipe back off again when the clutch pedal is pressed to the floor, after roughly 15 pumps of the pedal with a 2 second wait in-between.

Unfortautnely I still have no resistance on the clutch pedal, is there something I am missing here?

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated as I want to exhaust everything before taking the car in for a new slave and probably clutch.

Thanks in advance.
