Welcome to 2CarPros.

Is there any resistance in the clutch pedal? How was the system bled after the work was done?

Here are directions for bleeding the clutch system. Let me know if this is how you did it. The attached pictures correlate with the directions.

Press piston rod (2) completely into clutch slave cylinder with the help of the spindle.
Connect breather devise to brake fluid expansion tank.

Note: Check relevant Operating Instructions for each device. Charging pressure must not exceed 2 bar.

Attach breather hose to breather valve (1).
Hold clutch slave cylinder in illustrated position (refer to figure) with special tool 21 5 030.

Once brake fluid emerges without bubbles, withdraw piston rod (2) on clutch slave cylinder with the help of the spindle, then press back in.
If no air bubbles escape, close breather valve (1), otherwise repeat this process.
