External slave bleed screw

Hello everyone! I have read so many threads on this and I can not seem to find the answer to my question. Replacing slave on 97 TJ and the new slave has the threads for the bleed screw but is missing the screw and my old one is rusted on.... Where do I buy that screw? The lady's advice at autozone was to go to the dealer find out what it's called and come back tomorrow and talk to someone more mechanically inclined.. At least she was honest hahahaha Does anybody know what screw I need to put back in the new threads. Thanks so much

Most auto parts stores sell brake bleeder screws which may be the same threads....but I'd say your best bet is to order one from the dealer.

She found a brake bleeder that seemed to fit but it did not screw very far down. I can't believe the new shave does not come with one. Confused.... I'll give the dealer a call in a bit and see if they have it

I do not know the size of the bleed screw, but on my new cylinder that hole did nothing. I believe that is the case for many people on the forum. Does the hole actually go into the cylinder?

It looks like there is something in there that might block it.... I read those threads and it seems like I might not need to put a bleed screw back in?? That's where I'm confused... I guess I can try putting it back together with out it and see of I can get the air out.. I was just afraid that hole would suck in more air without the screw in place

Where did you buy the slave? I got mine from Napa. I didn't put a screw in mine, and it's been fine for about 2 years.

I took the cap off the reservoir, and pumped the cylinder by hand to bleed it.

I got mine from auto zone . It seems to me that nothing goes back in there. It's just confusing as to why the hole it there . Maybe it lets air out but does not suck it back in...

I'll see how it goes with out it

It's not building up any pressure with out that bleed screw in.... Wtf the old leaky slave at least would build up enough pressure to make it work..

Fill it up and let it set a while. They usually self bleed
