I didnt do it on the gq, but i just did it on the rodeo. when there was a heap of air in the lines i couldnt get it to flow, so i had to undo the nipple, depress the clutch, do the nipple up, pull the clutch up, and repeat about 5 times and then it started to flow on its own. i ended up just gravity bleeding it and it worked really well.

They are hard to bleed! But there is already a lot of stuff posted on the Forum about bleeding Patrol Clutches; it's worth a search and a read, or even just scrolling thru the Nissan Patrol tech index pages & selecting the appropriate threads!

all sorted,


who the **** thought it would be a good idea to put a second bleeder and a totally redundant line for the clutch!
