Pretty simple..bleed the clutch(I have a victi...er, helper, press
the clutch in, then I open the bleeder.  Close, then flip it around,
open valve then press clutch, etc.  I do this a few times until fluid
looks nice and clean.

Then I move on to brakes...I've always started at the passenger rear,
then moved to driver's side rear, then either front(probably driver's
side front.)  I bet the Bentley contains the correct order.  If
anyone knows why the order is important, I'm personally curious;
doesn't seem like it should matter, save maybe something to do with
either the proportioning valve or the ABS unit?

No idea.
