What is the proper way to bench bleed a master cylinder for a 1995 grand prix?

Before installing the master cylinder you do need to bench bleed it. Some brake master cylinders come with a bleeding kit to make bench bleeding the master cylinder easier, purchase a bench bleeding kit if yours did not come with one. The master cylinder bench bleeding kit consists of adapter fittings that screw into the master cylinder and tubes that attach to the fittings of the master cylinder. Place the master cylinder in a vise and attach the brake master cylinder bleeding kit routing the tubes into the master cylinder reservoir. While keeping the tubes submerged in brake fluid of ther reservoir, push the master cylinder piston in repeatedly using a screwdriver. You will see air traveling through the tubes into the reservoir by keeping the tubes in the fluid you are preventing air from re-entering the master cylinder when the piston returns. When there is no more air traveling through the tubes the master cylinder is ready to be installed. has a related tech article that goes into more detail, the link is in the left column. See the Related Links for "DenLors - Master Cylinder Bench Bleeding" to the bottom for the answer.

The clutch parts that wear out would be the clutch master cylinder and the clutch slave cylinder. Replacing the clutch master cylinder requires disconnecting the hydraulic line, unbolting and removing the master from the vehicle, bench bleeding the new master, install the new master then bleeding the system. Replacing the clutch slave cylinder requires removing the transmission assembly. I would recommend purchasing a shop repair manual for that vehicle if you want to DIY.

Remove the master cylinder. Follow any manufacturers instructions on bleeding the replacement master cylinder as required. Bolt the new master cylinder in place, reconnect the brake lines and electrical connector. Bleed the individual wheel cylinders and calipers to insure there is no air in the system.
