If your clutch pedal doesn't quite have the pressure it used to, or your\012 clutch fluid just looks old and dirty, it may be time to bleed and/or \012replace the clutch fluid.
Items needed:
\012
\0128mm open or box end wrench
\012Clear tube (1/4" ID)
\012One bottle DOT3/DOT4 brake fluid (doesn't have to be full)
\012A friend to press the clutch pedal for you
\012
\012Locate the bleeder valve on the clutch slave cylinder.

qk2cpkiyfjgaaaaasuvork5cyii=Use your 8mm wrench to open the valve one full turn, don't remove it.
\012
\012Stick your hose over the bleeder valve and have it drop off into a container.
lpd+ipdyjdaaaaaasuvork5cyii=Be sure to check the clutch fluid level before bleeding the system, you don't want to let it get below the MIN line.
\012
\012Have your friend pump the clutch pedal to start removing the fluid. \012Don't be con if they tell you the pedal went down to floor and won't \012come back up on it's own, that's normal. They'll just have to wedge it \012back up with their foot.
\012
\012NOTE: When bleeding the system, make sure the cap is ON or you will just be sucking in air
\012
\012Refill the clutch fluid as necessary to keep it above the MIN line. \012Since the clutch fluid reservoir is very small you'll have to keep a \012close eye on it.
zepo2bz1de6vgaaaabjru5erkjggg==I just had some extra ATE brake fluid left over from my brake fluid \012change so I decided to just use it since it is a DOT3/DOT4 fluid. But \012high performance fluids are not necessary for the clutch fluid so you \012can just use regular cheap DOT3 or DOT4 fluid and it won't make a \012difference.
\012
\012When you see the fluid in the hose change completely from the old color \012to the new color then you know the system has been flushed and is now \012full of new clutch fluid. Have your friend do one l press of the clutch \012pedal and tighten the bleeder valve once the pedal hits the floor. Since\012 you can't use a torque wrench on the bleeder valve, it's important to \012note it does not need to be very tight so don't try overtightening it \012and just snug it up with your wrench.
\012
\012Pump the clutch pedal again and the pressure should return. And that's all, you're finished.
