    I need to flush the system on my 3.0CS with a 5 speed trans. Where is the clutch slave? I'm replacing the brake reservoir and lines to the master cylinder so the clutch needs new fluid also. I photo would be helpful. Thanks!

    Clutch slave is attached to the drivers side of the trans. Follow the line from the master down under. I highly recommend you dig up SFdon's youtube video on bleeding the clutch as it will make your life much easier. I just had success with it this week.

    Thanks.. I did this years ago on my 2002 and will use a power vacuum bleeder on all of the bleeder valves.

    I saw his name,but could not find his post about this topic. Youtube does not have it using his name as a search either.

    Please post the Youtube link you mentioned. Looked for it but turned up nothing searching under SFdon, Don Lawrence, E9 clutch bleeding or BMW 3.0 CS clutch bleeding.

    Not Don in the video, but this is the one that he posted. It's in our best interest that Don does audio-only :D

    I saw that video on YouTube also. Once I was under the car, it was the same as bleeding the slave cylinder on my 2002 about 40 years ago.
