Same principle as for bleeding the brakes. Attach a tube to the bleed nipple on the clutch slave cylinder, loosen the bleed nipple and pump the clutch pedal until it runs clear of air bubbles, remembering to keep the clutch master cylinder topped up.

so two people needed one to pump the clutch one to loosen - tighten the nipple ,end with pushing on a sown stroke to make sure the air is locked out then tighten ones nipple..
