A few times now my clutch has required pumping up while driving for a while, and the pedal seems a bit softer than normal on occasion. I'm hoping this is due to air in the system, and my car does have 25k miles on it, and presumably hasn't had a brake or clutch bleed for five years or so. If I'm not mistaken, 25k miles is the recommended service interval for the brake and clutch fluid.
When I bought it they did warranty work to install a heatshield for the clutch hydraulic line in the engine bay, and I believe replaced the clutch master cylinder, though I'd have to look for the paperwork.
What's the best way to remove the undertray and get sufficient access to the engine bay to access the slave cylinder for bleeding? Will a set of rhino ramps do it? With the ramps in place is it still possible to put a floor/scissor jack under the jackpoints, in case one of the ramps fails?
Should I try to put more heat wrap on the line when I'm down there?
Should I bleed the brakes after the clutch? (Shared reservoir.)
What's a recommended pressure bleeding system for single-person bleeding?
*Edit:* I found this thread (https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f17...k-help-375865/
) which has useful steps, and I also have the service notes, but it's hard to find concrete information on how high the car needs to be and whether ramps are a good lift for this situation.
