Default clutch reservior

Hello, Can anyone tell me where the clutch reservior is for the 900 turbo, 83, 2.0 8 valve? The auto parts store told my friend that there is no fluid to add but my manual says there is a reservior to add to but not where the reservior is. Is it clutch fluid that is used? Mike

the clutch fluid resivor is the same as the brake fluid resivor. If you look underneath the brake fluid resivor you'll see a little nipple with a hose connected to it. The hose runs from the fluid resivor down the the clutch master cylinder... but I'll bet, if you're having a clutch problem, that topping up the fluid isn't going to fix it. You would at least.. need to bleed the clutch circuit but that still won't fix a broken seal at either master or slave cylinder. Try what you like in the meantime but I suggest you be brave and work to narrow down to either slave or master and then replace the appropriate component. To bleed the clutch circuit you need to use a pressure bleeder. This is due to the design of the system and you can't bleed it any other way. Pressure bleeders don't cost much but that's what you'll need if you don't already have one.
