Periodic Maintenance Procedures
Clutch Hose and Connection Inspection
The high pressure inside the clutch line can cause fluid
to leak [A] or the hose to burst if the line is not properly
maintained. Bend and twist the rubber hose while exam-
Replace it if any fraying, cracks [B] or bulges [C] are no-
Check that the hoses are securely connected and banjo
bolts are tightened correctly.

When installing the clutch hose, route the hoses accord-
ing to Cable, Wire, and Hose Routing section in the Ap-
Replace the hose if it has been sharply bent or kinked.
Clutch Fluid Level Inspection
Hold the clutch fluid reservoir horizontal.
Check that the clutch fluid level of the clutch reservoir is
between the lower [A] and the upper [B] level lines.
If the fluid level is lower than the lower level line, fill the
reservoir to the upper level line in the reservoir.
Since the clutch fluid is the same as the brake fluid, refer
to Brakes Section in the this chapter for further details.

Change the fluid in the clutch line completely if the
fluid must be refilled but the type and brand of the
fluid that already is in the reservoir are unidentified.
After changing the fluid, use only the same type and
brand of fluid thereafter. Mixing different types and
brands of fluid lowers the fluid boiling point and
could cause the clutch to be ineffective. It may also
cause the rubber clutch parts to deteriorate.
