got new clutch installed, 2 days later no gears

Hello,
I recently bought a new clutch and had it installed. I drove it for around 2 days and then i heard a loud crunching and bang noise then there was no gears. Reverse worked enough so i could park it but then it made a bang and then didn't work at all. I'm wondering if the guy who installed the new clutch didn't bleed it. If this is so, how would i do it and what would i need?
Thanks

Have a look at the reservoir.

Where is the fluid level?

Cheers

Likely the slave cylinder didnt like being disturbed and the seals have just failed.

If the slave cylinder is faulty, usually reverse is the hardest to get, plus you'd only get grinding while trying to select gears- not while cruising along.

Does the clutch pedal feel normal?
Can you select gears with the engine off?
