So if you bleed the lines it will firm up, but shortly after it returns to no resistance at the clutch pedal?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Yes

Expert:  Jake replied 3 years ago.
Thanks, did you bleed at the passengers side engine bay when bleeding and at the slave cylinder?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Yes, but it's on the driver side no? This is the one I use to do it all the time it was bleed from the others as well

Expert:  Jake replied 3 years ago.
Well if its a RH drive then yes it's drivers side. In the US we are LH drive so it would be passengers to us.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Sorry didn't realise you were in the US, Thought you were british, do you think the lines are leaking or letting in air?

Expert:  Jake replied 3 years ago.
Can you find any fluid leaks at all? Even non dripping ones that look like dampness on the lines around the pressed ends?
