Mixing brands and types of hydraulic fluid lowers
the fluid's boiling point, cause rubber part to de-
teriorate and can reduce the hydraulic clutch sys-
tem's effectiveness and cause an accident resulting
in injury or death. Do not mix two brands of brake
fluid. Change the fluid in the hydraulic clutch sys-
tem completely if the fluid must be refilled but the
type and brand of the hydraulic fluid that is already
in the reservoir are unidentified.
Remove the clear plastic hose.
Tighten the bleed valve, and install the rubber cap.
Torque - Clutch Slave Cylinder Bleed Valve: 7.9 N·m (0.81
kgf·m, 70 in·lb)
Torque - Clutch Reservoir Cap (for reference): 1.5 N·m
(0.15 kgf·m, 13 in·lb)
After bleeding the clutch line, check the clutch for good
clutching effectiveness and no fluid leakage.
If necessary, bleed the air from the line again.
