Mein Auto: 1999 BMW 528i
Ok guys, here is an update. Here is what I have done so far: while car on the lift, I pressed clutch about 10 times and then kept it pressed as my mechanic unscrewed the slave vent and let air/ break fluid leak out a bit. We repeated this procedure 3 times. After that we added more break fluid to the reservoir and went for a test drive. At first it seemed about 90% better ( shifting and also clutch response). After about a day or two, the shifting became a bit hard again. Before I spend any money, can anyone comment on this? My next thing at this point would be to replace the slave. Do you think I should also replace the delay valve? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
