Default how to bleed the clutch?

Ok, just got the sten, and the kid I got it from, said everything from the flywheel back was new, trans-wise. He said he had it all bled up, but forgot to fill it, and now the clutch pedal goes to the floor Verrrrry easily. How do I bleed it? 98 2.2l 5 speed.

fill the clutch resivor, on the driver side of the trany should be 2 holes one for line one for bleeder!! pump clutch 5 times n hold while you loosen, do this and air should come out keep doing it till its 100% fluid and make sure to add more to resivor!!

Be sure to tighten the bleeder before you let up on the pedal or you'll suck air back into the line defeating your purpose. Have someone help you do this (obviously) and have them pump it up 5 times like sdime915 said and hold it all the way to the floor until you get the bleeder closed. I usually have one of my kids do this for me.

I bled mine using a vacuum pump, but ended up doing it the way it is prescribed above. Just remember patience....
