    Has anyone attempted this without taking the assembly out of the car? Is there any reason you need to other than a possible space issue? Just don't have anyone to help bleed the clutch, so if I can do it without removing it would be a big help to me...

    No way in hell you are getting the C clip out without taking the assembly out of the car. Order a speed bleeder so you can bleed the clutch yourself.

    Damn...guess this project will have to wait until I get back. Got a question about this picture though. This is my cdv, right? How do I disconnect the two pieces to even get the cdv off? Don't wanna break anything.

    those two pieces are not attached to each other. you will see once you remove the bolts. the slave cylinder pushes out on the release fork when you shift.

    Cdv is on the very right of that pic. Those 2 bolts hold the sc on I'm thinking. once u get in there with more room it'll make sense to u.

    So, I was being stubborn and took the valve body apart only to discover there's no c clip, white thing or black thing like the pics at the beginning of the build thread show. I was able to pull out the "cylinder" and behind it was a spring, that's it. Are maybe the ex's different than the si's?

    Bro I remember reading in a thread that the CDV for non-si's are located in the master cylinder, not the slave. It's not the same. I'll try to find the post, but its not in the same location

    If the '12 EX is similar to the '12 Fit, they included the CDV inside the Clutch Master Cylinder (not in a separate slave cylinder like the Si). If this is the case, the only way to do the CDV delete is to replace the entire CMC with one that does not have a CDV inside, like from an older model Civic. I personally have not seen anyone try to do the CDV delete in anything but an Si, but here is a Fit forum thread where they had to replace the entire CMC. Doesn't look too difficult, just a matter of finding the right replacement parts.

    I'm leaving town next weekend but I can probably do it Friday afternoon like 330-4. Besides that I won't be able to do it for a while. U come up here too. I'm not battling that traffic. Lol.

    And a disclaimer. I'm not a master certified pro mechanic nor do I claim to be. I just like to work on cars. So with that in mind, let me know.

    I just placed my order with Speed Bleeder for the F/R brakes and the master cylinder.
    Thanks @jsyn77 for the part numbers.

    Can someone please confirm the sizes of the Speed Bleeders for our cars.
    I ordered a bunch of Speed Bleeders based on the info @jsyn77 posted and it's wrong :mad:

    I'm thinking that @trustdestruction has the proper information because it looks like he did some research.

    The part numbers in @jsyn77 post are definitely wrong.

    I need to know the sizes for both the front and rear brake callipers and the clutch slave cylinder.
    I don't want to get into these projects only to find out that I have the wrong bleeders and make a whole bunch more work for myself unnecessarily.

    @webby can you help?
