How to bleed a slave cylinder

Ok after locating the cylinder do I need to have someone else present or can I bleed it myself? I can not afford a mechanic and am pretty much smart enough to know how to do engine work I am disabled but not dead (yet lol)
Thanks!!!

Unless you have a pressure bleeder available, you will need a second person to pump the clutch while you bleed it.

You would bleed it the same as you would a brake system; have someone pump the pedal a few times and then hold it to the floor while you open the bleed screw. do this several times until the fluid comes out without any air.

About the only thing that goes wrong with clutch hydraulics is they start to leak. if they are dry, you should not have any problems.
