Re: [DML] bleeding the clutch.

Soak all you want. In my experience once a bleeder gets frozen you
usually wind up breaking the damm thing off. The problem is water gets
inside them and corrodes them from the inside-out. They get stuck and
the corrosion makes them thin and weak. The force of trying to turn it
breaks them. Now you see why they have (or at least are supposed to
have) those cute little rubber covers. They keep the water out. Go
ahead and break it off. You can drill it out after you pull the slave
cylinder off the car and rebuild it (or just replace it). Same thing
goes for the calipers on the wheels. All the bleeders should have
those covers and it doesn't hurt to flush and bleed these systems
every 2 years. Keeps things from freezing up.
