Clutch Issue, '00 F250

My Dad just had a clutch issue pop up in his '00 F250. He got in, put his foot down on the clutch & it went to the floor. You can pull it back up, but as soon as press down it goes right back.

He started looking around and noticed that the line that connects to the bottom of the master cylinder in the firewall was disconnected and there was a pin hanging half way out of the master cylinder. He connected the line back but couldn't figure out how to bleed the system.

What is the proper way to bleed the system? Does he need to go ahead and replace the whole hydraulic assembly since something caused the line to blow off? If so, I figure the slave should wrench out of the bell housing, but how do you remove the master from the firewall?

if its the pin, that WAS welded to the clutch pedal, well then ,you'll need to remove the pedal and reweld the "pin" back on. The m/c is removed from the firewall. Reach down in there, and turn it 1/4 turn, and she'll pop from the wall. The s/c is the same way, in the tranny. Best way to replace the unit, is to get a pre-bled master/slave assy.
