Here is your FIX. It involves removing the clutch damper and metal lines that is located on the fender. It has lines going to it from the clutch master cyl. and then from it to the slave cyl. It will not leak fluid, but will suck air into system. Find a hydraulic shop and have them make you a line, $30 max. Remove damper & lines...*notice that the lines going into damper are necked down to a smaller dia.- go with the larger size dia. if asked.* Install new line. Tighten at Master cyl. leave loose at hose going to slave, then bleed air out as the hose to slave will be full of fluid and should not require bleeding at slave...tighten, and your good to go !
