Default PSA: Bleed your clutch

I noted my pedal was acting a bit funny, engaging lower than normal so I decided to bleed the clutch.

What joooo need:

Cold engine

9mm 1/4" drive DEEEEP socket

1/4" rat****

What joooo need to do:

Unbolt and move your coolant tank.

reach down in there and put your ratchet/9mm socket on the clutch slave cylinder.

Either,

A: pump up your brake bleeder with new fluid and loosen the fitting and let the fluid dribble for a while.

or

B: Have someone pump the clutch down/bleed/pump/bleed/you get the picture.

anyhow, If you haven't done it in 2yrs... I'd strongly suggest it.

Default You'd better work on that man.

My other car could have had a DSG, but it wasn't good enough for me, or the wife.

FWIW, DSG is brilliant and the best ATX I have ever driven... but comes short.

Default I've wondered about that. I've had the car 3 years and have never done it.

It has started to make a little groaning noise when letting it out slow.

Default Just do it...

It's a bit of a reach. Make sure the Engine is cold. My impatience and high pain tolerance resulted in 2nd degree burns on my forearms, lol.

Default and the other one

(if you do it from below on a lift)

if you don't move out of the way, the fluid will either end up in your arm pit or on your shoe.
