Unhappy Clutch Bleeding

Hi Everyone:
I replaced clutch slave on 2000 2.7 Boxster. Then pumped pressure to 22 psi. with clutch pedal to floor. Let air out of bleeder valve. Pulled clutch up by hand. Clutch would not go down all the way. At this point I had not relieved pressure from Motive.
I pushed a little harder with my hand on clutch pedal. I then noted fluid leaking at slave; but not at bleeder or line. Then a lot of fluid leaked out of line (black) beside battery. No fluid leaked on floorboard at master. Did all of this happen because I didn't relieve pressure from Motive before pressing on the clutch? Also if I have to replace the line from the reservoir to battery area, how is line attached to reservoir. I don't see a clip or a push fitting.
Thanks,
Garry

I bleed my clutch every time I flush the brake / clutch fluid. I pump up the Motive and do the four brakes first, starting with furthest from the master cylinder and working to closest. Then, without releasing Motive pressure, I push down the clutch pedal and hold it down with a stick. After bleeding at the slave, I release the Motive pressure and lift up the clutch pedal from the floor. Is that the correct way to do it?

slave cylinder

Does anyone have a diagram as to how the slave components can be reassembled after coming apart (new slave). I don't see any type of snap ring or keeper.
