Bleed Nipples

Does anyone know if there are more than one bleed nipple on the K20 clutch line? The only one I know about is on the slave cylinder just behind the radiator fan. I'm hoping there is one near the master cylinder down by the firewall?
I'm struggling to get at the slave cylinder one from below, due to small space, large hands and the 8mm spanner being a bit short
Thought about taking the intake pipe off and trying to get at it from above?

Unfortunatly I think itís one of those remove more parts than you care for to make the job easier, not failure with a K20 but serviced the FRV today and had to remove half the ancillaries to get to the fuel filter but mad the job so much easier.

Yep. Think I'll end up taking off intake pipe, throttle body. Should get enough access.

Only one in an FN2 anyway. Just a pain to get to and expect cut knuckles

Imagine it's the same in an EP3

Removing the intake will allow you to access it but still a bit of a tight squeeze.
