    Hard into gear after brake fluid change

    Our lasses car is hard to get into gear after I did the brake fluid change.
    I suspect its down to needing to now bleed the clutch fluid? The res' got abit low at one point, if my brother got bored and had pressed the clutch down. it could have air in?

    This all relies on if the A3 100 tdi Y reg has a fluid clutch?

    Unless it has the concentric slave cylinder which I think it might have with that year and being a TDI.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.
