How to replace clutch slave cylinder on 1999 Saturn SL2?

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO BLEED THE CLUTCH HYDRAULIC UNIT.

According to the manufacturer, the hydraulic system (mater cylinder, actuator, hose) is serviced as a COMPLETE UNIT. It has been filled with fluid and bled of air at the factory. If the system requires any fluid, check the hydraulic components for leakage. Remove the slave cylinder from the clutch housing and check for leakage at the piston, a slightly wet surface is normal. If excessive, replace system.The clutch slave cylinder in a Saturn needs to be bled anytime you change the clutch fluid or the cylinder. If air is trapped in the clutch fluid lines, the clutch will not engage properly and it could cause the transmission gears to grind due to an insufficient separation of the clutch assembly from the transmission.
Do not attempt to bleed the clutch hydraulic system. The bleed screw located on the clutch hydraulic slave cylinder is used for the factory fluid fill only.
Use only DOT 3 brake fluid. Do not use mineral oil or a paraffin base oil in the hydraulic system as damage to rubber parts will occur. Clean the cap and sides of reservoir before removing cap, then remove diaphragm. Carefully replace diaphragm and cover after filling.
