    I don't see no bleeder valve

    Clutch sometimes lays on the floor, slow coming back up or works fine after sitting over night until 3 or 4 shifts. Looked for the bleeder valve and all I see is the braided line going inthe side of the bell housing. I looked and felt as far as I could to the top of the bell housing. Found no bleeder valve anywhere. Where some of these not mounted on the outside and I will have to go pull the tranny to get to it? I have a new slave upgrade on the way. Where is the the Master mounted? My resovoir is full, no leaks. Sorta baffled because I have seen pics of a bleeder valve just above the braided line but I don't see one on mine.

    I'm an A4 guy but helped on a couple clutch replacements/bleeding. The bleeder is on the clutch actuator clyinder, about 3/4 of the way up, and accessable from the outside from under the car. You need a small wall socket, and have to "feel" for it if I remember correctly. It's a PITA.

    I put a big spot light up in there and still did not see anything. Put my hand as far up as I could get it and still felt nothing but smooth bell housing.

    Thats because it doesnt stick out of the bell housing. There should be a small hole just above the braided line. THe bleeder screw is inside there. If you were to pull your trans and look at your slave cylinder it has to leads coming off of the cylinder. Both extend to the edge of the bell housing area and one if for the braided line connection and the other is a long hexagonal bleeder screw
