FXTRunner can you please some more details about the way you bleed it? I'm lost 'Did you remove the slave cylinder and compress the pin in with a c-clamp then bleed it while the bleeder valve was kept as the highest part on the slave?"

I have 1999 jdm STi Ra.
Thanks in advance,

Yes, the cylinder needs to be removed, then use a c-clamp to keep the pin in place. I compressed it all the way down. Took some talent for the person holding it with the c-clamp to open and close bleeder but doesn't take long to bleed the air out. Watch the fluid level, as it goes down quickly.

When you say engagement is hard do you mean pushing the pedal is difficult? If you have air in the system the pin will hardly move and the pedal feel is really soft.
