    Brake/Clutch Fluid Change

    Quick question - checked through Haynes and I'm unless Im missing something, it doesnt give the total volume of new fluid required when doing a total change?

    (I'm planning to do both brake then the clutch as described in Haynes).

    cheers

    For future info:

    2 litres of hydraulic fluid should be enough to do a total fluid change inc. clutch. Buy some more to be sure.

    The clutch bleed nipple can be accessed from under the bonnet - ignore Haynes about accessing from underneath - you won't have to get the front up or the underside protector off. As you look at the engine, its on the right hand side towards the back of the engine compartment - the nipple sticks out to the right and you need a decent stretch to reach it.

    The clutch also pumps more fluid per/pump than the brake, so be careful with the master cylinder level and don't let it go below MIN.
