Again I apologize, I work too many hours...
The valve you need to bleed is on top of the transmission. If you remove your battery and battery tray you should be able to follow the line from master cylinder to the valve on the transmission. It looks just like the valve on your brakes. To bleed it you need two people: one to pump the clutch, one to open and close the valve. It will take a little while to fully bleed the clutch. The best way to tell that no more bubbles are coming out (and to keep the area clean) is attach a clear tube to the valve and use a bright light so you can see the fluid as it comes out (route it to a bucket).
Again, make sure you keep the brake fluid reservoir topped off or you'll have to start the bleeding all over.
