clutch bleeding probs

    hi there,
    today I helped bleed a clutch on a relies 4x4 Ute , we had just installed a new clutch, much finger pinching and difficulties.
    We tried the normal method to bleed the clutch and it did not work.
    In reading the instructions that came with the clutch kit, it mentioned an area " clutch damper diagnosis"
    and associated problems. We think that this may be the area not working.
    I have never heard of this clutch damper thing, has anyone else ? and where is it to be found?
    All I can see is the clutch master and the metal line to the slave and that's it!

    A damper is fitted in the clutch fluid line, one pipe in, one pipe out, so if you can't see it in the line it hasn't got one fitted. IIRC Mini Metro used to have one fitted, but that was the only one I came across/worked on.

    Could try opening bleed screw and letting it gravity bleed. Takes a while though. Failing that vacuum or eezi bleed may help.
