Congrats on the new Sonett!
Not sure I understand what you mean by "Yesterday I started losing the pressure only when the clutch was let all the way out." Losing pressure with the pedal all the way in is what I would guess.
Either way, it's not working. Vintage Saab clutch hydraulics can be difficult to bleed and trap air bubbles.
I would purge the system completely of old fluid and pressure bleed it before doing anything else. I have a spare cap that I threaded in a fitting for my air compressor (at very low pressure). Works great!
I just replaced the master on my Saab 900 and reverse pressure bled that one using a 150 mL syringe I bought on Amazon, pushing new fluid up through the bleed nipple on the slave. Given the remote reservoir on the Sonett, that should work well.
