Here's what it say's about bleeding.
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.

Individual components of the system are not available for service, except the slave cylinder actuator pushrod plastic retainer strap. 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.
I have worked for the saturn dealer a long time and they only sell and install the complete system sealed.I have had a lot of people ask me how to bleed them because they only replaced the master or slave cylinder.I will tell you the same thing I told them return what ever you bought and get the whole system sealed and put that in. They have them for 80 plus shipping.
