4 cylinder and 5 speed - sounds like an AX5 to me. I don't know if it's anything similar to my BA 10/5, but there is a hydraulic line with a bleeder fitting on the driver side of the transmission. It's just like bleeding brakes. With the slave inside, you might have to bleed a few times to get all the air out.


However, if you were just driving along and found your CMC was dry, that suggests a leak. Bleeding won't solve that problem. You'll want to fill the MC and see if you can find fluid leaking anywhere down the line. An assistant would be helpful - they can pump the clutch while you check for the leak.
