Most bleed proceedures are the same. Have an assistant push the clutch pedal all the way to the floor and hold it there. Then loosen the bleed valve on the slave cylinder under the vehicle.This is the device which disengagesthe clutch. Now check the fluid level. Usually there is a seperateresevoir for the clutch, separate from the brake master cylinder. Make sure you keep this full, or air will be in the line again. Youmight need to bleed it twice.Good luck.

An easy way is to get some clear air hose(from a fish tank) the size of the nipple on the bleeder screw and push it on the bleeder. Then get a clean can and fill it half way with fluid and stick the other end of the hose in the can. Now open the bleeder and pump the clutch petal a few times. Make sure to watch the fluid level in slave cylinder resiovur. When there is no air bubbles in the clear hose tighten the bleeder and your done.

To bleed a clutch on a Nissan Stanza, you need to find the bleed-off valve, usually somewhere near the slave cylinder.

It probably has a hydraulic clutch so you will have to bleed the air out of it.
