I can’t get the screw from the hydraulic [brake](/topics-brake-nissan/) line back onto master clutch cylinder Mechanic's Assistant: Has the clutch been slipping? Are you having any trouble shifting? I’m replacing the master clutch cylinder. The new one is in. I’m just having trouble reconnecting the hydraulic line screw any suggestions Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car? 2005 Nissan 350z Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 350Z yourself? What have you tried so far? We've replaced the older master cylinder. Are trying to reconnect the hydraulic brake line into the new master cylinder and are having trouble getting the thread to match and screw in Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you? Nope just that.

Hi! Leigh, Hope I can help sorry to hear about your line not going in , what I do is leave the master cylinder loose so you can align the line square to the hole so it will go in use your fingers only or you can cross thread them easy and damage the threads . do not use a wrench and force it in the hole it will get damaged and not go in. let me know Thanks Roy! Let me know if you have any questions, Thank you Roy!

Still couldn't get it to go in. It's acting as if it doesn't fit. Could it be I need a new one. Maybe the threading is bad.
Automotive Expert
If it will not start the threads could be bad

I can't even get the screw inside the master keeps popping out.
Automotive Expert
if lined up square with the hole it should go in easy sounds like the threads are bad

Well I think he's got it he took the master off and re lined it with the hose. How tight should it be?
Automotive Expert
Just snug not too tight then check for leaks

Before we changed the master and slave. The clutch wasn't coming back up after being pressed. How long should it take to bleed everything.
Automotive Expert
They can take a while to get all the air out you will need to keep pulling the pedal back up and pumping I use a pressure bleeder at home it take a while to get all the air out

Does the bolt connecting to the slave and oil line does it need to be tightened a certain amount for oil to flow through?
Automotive Expert
to bleed it out you need to loosen the bleeder screw and re snug after air comes out until solid flow of fluid

We are doing that. We are not getting any pressure from clutch. Is the reservoir supposed to be loosing fluid? How long should it take.
Automotive Expert
There are a few YouTube videos that might help also I will bench bleed the master cylinder first then install it [bleeding](https://www.dropbox.com/s/n0mr01f689wvna7/bleeding.pdf?dl=0)
Automotive Expert
Just post back if you need anything Thank you Roy!

I will. We are getting a pressure bleeder now should work better
Automotive Expert
Okay good luck have a great day ! Thanks again
