    Hi all, happy new year..

    Need some quick advice for an easy fix.
    Need to bleed the clutch, but need to confirm the fluid is topped up from the same place as the brakes?

    Is this correct?

    Its a 2000 model pre face lift S3.

    Yep, clutch master cyl takes a feed from the brake reservoir... you can see the pipe at the back of the reservoir... don't let the fluid get low else it will introduce air to the clutch and you will have to do it again... don't pressure bleed either... pump the clutch 5 times then undo the bleed nipple on the gearbox for a few seconds until fluid pours out, repeat a few times and check clutch operation once done...

    Ooooooo.... 4000th post :)
