How do you bleed a clutch on a 2005+ Mustang GT?

Anyone know how to bleed a clutch? Or give some pointers? Do I really need a vacume pump like the manual says? Where is the bleeder screw? I don't see a bleeder screw on the tranny. I've attached a pic that I would assume is the bleeder screw but it's HUGE. Do I bleed the clutch first or the brakes or does it matter? I'm changing out brake fluid to valvoline SYNPOWER.

Can I mix and match what little Ford brake fluid with the Valvoline. I've got lots of air in the system now since I took the calipers off and put new SS Lines in. Master Cylindar is dry so I'm assuming there is lots of air.

You can mix the DOT 4 with the OEM DOT 3.

If you pump the clutch pedal, the slave will self bleed. It takes a while though.

You can also jack up the driver side front while pumping the clutch pedal. It does take a while so be patient.
