Its not a bleeder screw like a normal one. Its a screw that allows the passage to open and close to remove the air.

If there is air in the slave cylinder, it has to be taken off and bench bled. While you have the slave off, gravity bleed the master cylinder. be prepared to do this at least a couple of times.

You can't bench bleed the slave. If you do then when your done you'll just have air in it again when you connect the line. On the top of the slave, there is a 4MM allen head screw that is the bleeder. Bleed it like a brake system. After the air is out of the slave you'll notice it'll take a LOT of pumping to get the clutch up again.

If theres a bleeder screw on your slave cylinder, than consider yourself lucky. i just put one on my 96 and i can assure you that there is no bleeder screw.

I had to put a duralast one on, I didn't want to but I was in a pinch about 200 miles away from my garage and that's all I could get at the time.
