Rio 2008 clutch bite way too low
Hot myself a 2008 rio diesel. Very nice and cheap little car, but the bite point on the clutch is nearly at max depression of the clutch
I've had a look around and it could be because the clutch slave cylinder needs bleeding.
I'm pretty ok with doing oil services but never bled anything. I understand that I need to open the bleed bit on the cylinder and get someone to press the clutch a few times until it's just hydraulic fluid coming out rather than air. Like a radiator in a house for example.
But, as this the brakes use the same system, do all those need bleeding too?
And am I ok to just top up the master fluid cylinder after the bleeding?
Or even am I looking at the wrong thing completely to solve the low biting point?
Many thanks in advance
