Clutch line install and bleeding?

I can't find the how to anywhere. I bough the SR Performance clutch line because I get the clutch pedal sticking issue every once in a while.

I think I won't have any problem installing it but I have no clue how to bleed it. I've read somewhere that the 2013 clutch is "self bleeding" and I have to pump the clutch about 100 times. But do I have to catch fluid somewhere?

If anyone has done this please explain. Thanks!

Thanks. However this doesn't cover the "self bleeding" feature of our 5.0s

turkey baster most of the old fluid out of the brake MC, replace it with your choice, pump the brakes about 5X and the clutch about 100. That's it.

turkey baster only if changing the fluid....just as mentioned pump the clutch a gazillion times, check fluid level but unless you spilled it'll be fine. Myself and others have had to repeat the next day.

Just changed mine to a JHR SS line. The only hard part is the PITA little retaining clips! There's no room between the body/trans hump and the trans to get your hands in there to snap the retaining clips in. I shot one somewhere and cannot find it! My car is down because I cannot get a new clip. I was able to use the one from the top on the bottom so that way the bottom was done and when I DO GET a new clip installing it won't be such a PITA!
Bleeding is easy. Just pump the peddle a bunch of time. Holding the peddle to the floor seems to speed this up some as the air is lighter that the fluid. This is a trick I used on my dirt bikes before a race to make sure there was no air in the brake or clutch lines. KTM's use a hydraulic clutch. I'd wrap tie downs around the levers, pull them tight, and leave it sit. The pressure would force the air to the reservoirs.
ANYONE KNOW WERE I CAN GET A NEW RETISNING CLIP? They should be the same from 2005-2014 if I'm not mistaken?
