On the MB's with a clutch there is a hose that slips over a barbed fitting nipple that protrudes from the side of the master cylinder reservoir. This feeds fluid to the clutch master cylinder, where it is also a slip fit.

My question is, has anyone ever used a pressure bleeder on the master cylinder filler hole with one of these systems? Will the pressure blow the hose off, or make it leak?

If I get warm weather this week end, I need to change the brake fluid and I prefer to use my pressure bleeder rather than trying to catch my daughter to help on a weekend. It's hard to catch her between band, UIL and dates. My wife will probably be around, but she doesn't have the brake bleeding expertise that my daughter has. You know, it's a very finely honed and highly technical skill.

Thanks in advance,
