Hi All

Giving the car its annual service and notice that the clutch fluid in the master cylinder is quite discoloured.
I will flush the fluid through with new until it is clear but was wondering there was a fluid a that could be flushed through to clean out the deposits before final filling through with new hydraulic fluid.

any thoughts

Just use more Brake fluid, it's cheap enough... I always use a turkey baster (don't tell the wife :roll: ) to remove as much fluid out of the master as possible before refilling with clean fluid.
