Yesterday I felt my Clutch master cylinder "bleed off" as I was going through the gears. My first thought was the clutch needs to be blead, so I have a Haynes repair manual that goes from 1987 thru 2003 and my TJ is a 2002, and it reads"on a six cyl. the bleeder screw is located on the left hand side of the trans." Then it reads "remove the dust cap cover which fits over the bleeder screw".
Well the picture they show looks nothing like whats on my Jeep, the location is correct, and I have seen a "boss" that looks like it might be a bleeder, but there is nothing, no screw or Allen or std. hex bolts or threads of any type.
So where is the Bleeder screw?

Wow, I can't imagine no one on this board has not had a clutch master cylinder fail.

Just so everyone knows, The clutch master cylinder, hydraulic line and slave cylinder is sold as one
pre-assembled unit and is a dealer item only. The unit came filled with break fluid and was ready to bold in.
Installation only took about 45min using only ½ inch and 9/16 sockets. Unit cost was $250, and don’t be surprised if they have to order it from the warehouse.

I just noticed the post. I have the 2002 TJ Factory Service Manual, but haven't looked for a bleeding procedure. Did the dealer have any input on how this could be done? Or did they just recomment replacing the master/slave cylinder assembly?

There is no way to bleed the clutch master cylinder. Although, there is a boss with threads located on the top of the slave cylinder, but there's no type of bleed screw. So you just have to buy a new one.

When I went to the dealer to pick up the part, I asked one of the mechanics if I needed to be bleed it and he replied no, it's ready to go in.
I was suprised at how easy it was to install. Me being 6' 2", the hardest part was getting my body in such a way so I could see up under the dash.
