Default Guide to changing the clutch fluid?

Hi,

I'm going to change my clutch fluid and brake fluid in the next couple of days, is there a DIY available or can anyone give me some steps please?

Will my trusty bleed pipe work?



Cheers

C'mon roids just like the brake fluid but only one nipple. Try the FAQs.
Same routine one man bleeder kit pump till there not much left in the top, clean it out, put in clean DOT4 and pump till it comes out clean, topping up the top as you go.

Okay, so the clutch reservoir/system is a separate system to the brakes?, so no need to look/mess about with the brakes system/reservoir etc etc?

Yes, that's how you can change gear without your forehead slamming into the steering wheel.

, that guide is just confusing then, far as i see it just do as you for the brakes but only one line to bleed and top up the small reservoir, is it 1/4 litre or something?

Young Jedi you have so much to learn, totaly seperate.
And yes but to change the fluid you will need 1/4-1/2 liter, just keep going till it runs clean.
Where abouts are you mayby an elder Jedi can give you a hand.

I admit i have never done this job myself before - its just that guide confused me/makes it more complicated that it is.

I reckon I'm more a young padawan

Aha, just read the guide myself and it looks like a brake fluid change guide that's been amended but a few stray brake ref's have stayed in. Not very well worded. I apologise for my sarcasm.

It's the same principle (hydraulic fluid change) as the brakes but the clutch fluid is the smaller reservoir next to the brake servo.
