I was trying to losen the zerk fitting to bleed my clutch (stock trans) and it snapped right off. What is the easiest way to fix this?

Anyone else do this before?

Any help is appreciated!

Get a square shaped e-z out from Sears. Hammer it into the opening of the bleeder screw and try and get it out by turning it counter clockwise. I have tried the threaded e-z outs and they didn't work like the square ones.

If you can't remove it with a easy out on the vehicle you'll have to take it off and put it in a vise. Try tapping on it with a hammer, sometimes that will break it free.

Good luck

Remove it from the vehicle, drill it out, and then run a tap through it to clean it up. You will have to flush it.

Something easier to do than try and use an EZ out is to buy a new slave cylinder to replace the bleeder screw.

No NO! Flush the Slave Cyl if you were to drill it out. Too many <IMG SRC="smilies/beer.gif" border="0"> s

I went to the dealer and got a slave cylinder/master cylinder combo unit for about $112. It includes the line as well.

A good set of easy outs is a must have for any garage. The set will tell you what size hole you need for each size easy out. You should get a left handed drill bit for each size necessary. Drill the center of the fitting with the correct size Left Hand bit, as you drill apply pressure in small bursts this can cause the bit to bite the material and break the threads free. A left hand bit will many times retract the broken bolt with out the need of the easy out.
