[ROVERNET - UK] Clutch Hydraulics - 2000

Speaking of which, I went through exactly that process on Saturday.
Got under car to realign exhaust after fitting towbar. When I grabbed the
right wheel, it turned slightly... which it shouldn't with handbrake on.
Oh no, the caliper mount was loose. So that started 3 hours of battling the
stupid large nut on the front of the mounting point. Ended up pulling out
the handbrake cam so I could get to it, and relocating the handbrake tappet
via rebuilding caliper (which I can now do very quickly). Interestingly I
lost the tappet in the process of removal, used a spare.
Then the bleed.
Exhaust not touched, I'd had enough, and it was too hot.

Yes, it has long been my practice to detach the
slave from the bellhousing and allow it to hang
when bleeding, so the bleed screw points up. I've
never had the luxury of self-bleeding screws, but
I have contemplated them many times, usually when
I have my hand stuck up the diff of a P6 opening
the rear caliper bleed screw with my cut down
7/16 ring wrench ;-).
