Whats the smaller reservoir under the steering column?

Post by audiocontr » Mon Jun 22, 2009 10:26 pm

I see the one is brake fluid, but what is the cylindrical reservoir for? Clutch hydrolic fluid?

Mine is very low. What should i use for fluid? Can i use brake fluid? (I'm used to MGs and the like where its in both the brakes and clutch hydrolics)

If I am low, where can it be leaking? What should i look for?

My apologies for the simple questions. I have ordered a manual. Just need to get it here

It is Clutch fluid use brake fluid . If you have flushed the fluids you may want to. There was sluge in my lockers the first time I flushed them.
