I have no idea about the note but i do know you cannot bleed the clutch on a Mk3 Espace 2.2Dci as its a sealed unit.

I had one let go in mine and when they replace them, the mastercycliner, slave cyliner and the pipe allcome as one ready filled and fully sealed system.  You can only swap them out if they fail, you cannot bleed them

I was told the same (that it’s a sealed complete system).  The actuating rod popped out of the slave cylinder on mine (it had a plastic bit on the end that broke) and my pet garage guy prepared me for the worst. But he had a new rod made up and got it back in without touching the rest of the system.

It has been done before despite being a sealed unit.

Take a look at the forum topic 99 jeon 2.0 16v clutch cylinder

and that may help.
