you dont need the dampener. remove it and slowly bend the hard line around, careful not to pinch it. if youre gonna keep the dampener, youre gonna have to bleed it first then bleed from the slave cylinder. make sure you jack up the front when you bleed the dampener. and use some punctuation please. took me like 3 minutes to figure out what you were trying to say

sorry my bad, I have a auto right now im gonna do a 5 speed conversion. I was wondering if the bleeder valve and the dampner are the same thing. Why do i have to have the fron of the car jacked up? also i was just gonna buy braided clutch lines.

well the bleeder valve is just part of the dampener. but the slave cyclinder also has its own bleeder valve. many other hydraulic components have bleeder valves too, ie. brake calipers, drums, etc. nissan discovered many owners couldnt get air out of the dampener when the car was level, so they said to just jack up the front. it was in a service bulletin years ago. i got rid of my dampener. it gaved a more solid clutch feel. slight increase in vibration but its well worth the trade off. gl on the conversion.
