This is not the procedure in the manual, but I have used it for many years.
There is a bleed screw on the slave cylinder. Have someone push down and hold the clutch pedal at the bottom. Open the bleed screw. Close the bleed screw. Have the person let the clutch pedal up and then push to floor again. Open the bleed screw. Close the bleed screw. Repeat the procedure until all the air comes out. Make sure there is enough fluid in the master cylinder throughout the process.

A noise which goes away when you touch the clutch pedal could be an indication of a bad clutch or throwout bearing. However, I have a sound in my 307d that displays those symptoms but I think it is a noise related to typical diesel rattle and not the clutch bearing itself.
