Yes, but it is a bit messy. Same procedure - person A opens the nipple about 1/2 turn, person B presses the clutch pedal down, A closes the nipple finger tight, B pulls the pedal up with his foot, repeat.... Use rags, paper towels, shop towels, or whatever to soak up the brake fluid as it comes out.

An important note is that brake fluid is subject to spontaneous combustion when soaked up. (Brake fluid is a notorious part of the arsonist's toolbox.) Wet the soaked rags with water and seal them in a zip-lock bag or something else to keep air out before disposing of them.

Yes & get a one man bleeder kit ,there very cheap ,it will have a syringe that will get bleeding started then it will just gravity bleed, I have Never needed a second person with Integra ,very easy job , I have done over 100 clutch masters ill bet all with a perfect pedal when i was done,,if you replaced slave cylinder you wasted your money ,,20 years on acura cars I never seen one leak ,good luck...O & Also don't go nuts worrying about old fluid soaked rags and such . just don't get on paint,..and its water soluble so if you do just hose it off ..i never seal old rags in plastic bags and crap like that like the other dude said ,i respect he does but its overkill
