suck out the old fluid with a turkey baster and add new fluid. will need a helper, the bleeder is under on the drivers side. have helper push the clutch all the way down and hold it there then you loosen the bleeder nut and fluid will squirt out then tighten the nut then the helper can let off on the clutch. then have helper add new fluid to the master and repete the same process until you see new clear fluid squirt out of the bleeder end. do not let the master go dry. thats pretty much it!

The Black is the slave cylinder starting to go .Know you don't want to hear it but that's it.How old is the clutch ?I just replaced all of the clutch assembly when I mean all,I mean all .Master,slave,clutch plate,pressure plate, pilot bearing.
It was more of seeing I had the tranny down ,do it now instead of waiting to do it soon later.
As for yours not disengaging.No pressure means no plate moving.You pump the clutch to build pressure up but as you drive longer distance the pressure bleeds out.
