Meriva b New 3 piece clutch fitted and The clutch slave cylinder will not bleed even disconnected from slave cylinder and still fluid coming after 100s of pumps done in all the usual ways, tried ez bleeder with pedal up and down even tried reverse bleeding with the ez bleeder still nothing. There looks like some sort of round wheel looking valve midway on the clutch pipe line. As anyone had the same issue with any ideas

Yeah it could be that pressure valve that’s causing the issue ,not had it on that model but kia are prone for it,would crack the pipe at it and see if your getting fluid to it first.

Try priming the line , could be master cyl knackered . Sometimes if you reverse bleed it can turn the seals in the cyl .
