It's not easy to do at all. The bleeder is at the bottom and the air rises to the top. A pressure bleeder may help. I've also had some success by simply pumping the pedal continuously. The air eventually migrates out the top.

Did you bench bleed the master?


Bleeding master:
1. Connect a hose with a bottle to the bleeder screw.
2. Open the bleed nipple.

CAUTION: For bleeding, never "pump" the clutch pedal. This may cause an oil leak at the clutch cylinder.

3. Depress the clutch pedal slowly. Open the bleeder screw to let air and brake fluid out. Close the bleeder screw. Release the clutch pedal. Repeat until only brake fluid and no air comes out.
4. Check that the brake fluid reservoir level stays between "MAX" and "MIN" marks throughout the clutch bleeding process.

Clutch slave bleeding:

1. Remove the under cover.
2. Connect a hose with a bottle to the bleeder screw.
3. Open the bleed nipple.
4. Depress the clutch pedal slowly. Open the bleeder screw to let air and brake fluid out. Close the bleeder screw. Release the clutch pedal. Repeat until only brake fluid and no air comes out.
5. Check that the brake fluid reservoir level stays between "MAX" and "MIN" marks throughout the clutch bleeding process.
