    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.

    Easy to bleed though? My old vectra just a bleed screw on top of the box. I'll have to have another ganders when i put my new rear caliper on.
