    Default Brake and Clutch bleed

    My Vec's in next week for the Big Service. (cambelt,fanbelt,MOT, oil and filter)

    I've also asked for the brake fluid to be changed as its over 4 years old and still the original

    Does the clutch have to be bled at the same time as the braking system or is it completely independant? I know the clutch is hydraulic but are they linked at all?

    The brake and Clutch hydraulic systems share a common reservoir.

    So I guess that means a brake fluid change also means the clutch fluid is done at the same time.

    Might help the clunky gearchange!
