Tips & Warnings

  • Before you start looking for the clutch reservoir, make sure your car has a hydraulic clutch in the first place. Cars with cable clutches do not use fluid.
  • Be careful when working with brake fluid. It's very corrosive. Don't let it go on the car's paint or any part of your body.
  • If you keep finding a low clutch fluid level, you might have a leak, which can render your clutch pedal useless. See your mechanic to have this problem fixed.
