The VW Beetle does not have clutch fluid. There is not any fluid associated with the clutch. The transmission has transmission fluid.

show me where to add power sterring fluid to my 1999 beetle

you dont add clutch fluid. If the clutch is slipping that means that you need to buy a new clutch

Go to the transmission and check slave cylinder for leaks,also check clutch master cylinder,then go look by your clutch pedal to see if its leaking there,these are your places that it could be leaking,is your fluid level low,if not ,then you may need a new clutch kit.

Suck the clutch fluid out of the resovoir with a machine or vacula system. Then add new clutch fluid (which is primarily DOT3 brake fluid in most apps). For proper sequence repeat the process and bleed the clutch system ( depending on make/model).

You dont..its hydrolic...if the petal spongy..check the fluid level in drive side firewall..if low add..brake fluid...get new master..and or slave... If its slipping...time for a clutch assy....

Owner's manual. Actual Answer: There is no data in the owner's manual on checking or maintaining the transmission fluid level. I have a new beetle, it's leaking, and it seems the only recourse to submit myself (and my wallet) to the VW dealer - again.

Ther is no such fluid get new clutch if its having problems

I believe that a 2001 Focus will have a hydraulic clutch. If so, there is no adjustment required... In other words, or to add, if Your clutch is catching very high up, you may need a new clutch. Check hydraulic fluid if catching very low.

The '96 200sx has no fluid for the clutch. This car has a cable operated clutch that needs to be adjusted. If the cable breaks the clutch will not disengage. If the clutch is getting tight it will need lubed. If lubing the cable doesn't work a new cable is needed.

your clutch may be slipping ,first check and see if your clutch slave cylinder is leaking,check your clutch master cylinder to see if your fluid level is ok.if level is ok and no leaking slave cylinder,then you probaly need a new cluch.

low or out of fluid (new car) classic car linkage may have broken

After looking and consulting with techs, I found the reservoir to be included with the brake system. You should see a separate, unpressurized hose coming off the side (right) that leads down to the master clutch cylinder. This was on a 2004 VW New Beetle convertible.

Bleed the slave cyl. It probebly has air in the line or no fluid.

there is no such thing as clutch fluid. sorry you need a new clutch. There is indeed clutch fluid(same as brake fluid) in a classic Mini. The master cylinder is in the engine compartment directly above where the clutch pedal is located. I prefer to use Castrol brand available from Pep Boys in the USA. If the system is empty though you need to source the leak. Either from the master cylinder into the car or from the slave cylinder down by the clutch.

Check your clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder for leaks,if no leaks,then you need a new clutch kit.

The fluid Volkswagen installs at the factory is Pentosin CHF-11S. Napa sells it.

it might not have any hydrolic fluid in the clutch master cylinder to engage the cluth or your clutch might me shot and just won't engage at all meaning you need a new one (was there a smell in the car right before you couldn't use clutch? that might of been the clutch burning up). don't quote me on all that I'm just telling you what you can check.

Things to check first are is the clutch fluid reservoir low?Second check at the transmission on the right hand side at the slave cylinder for it leaking and note(fluid would be low in the reservoir).Mazda trks are notorious for slave cyldr failure.Now if the fluid is not low and the slave is not leaking things to consider.Now do you here any noise coming from the transmission while in neutral ONLY,and once you depress the clutch pedal the noise goes away(if so the throw out bearing is going bad)I would not say the clutch is need of replacement IN most cases based on on a sticking clutch pedal.Probably the clutch master is going bad(spring is weak inside assembley) and the fluid level is fine,no leaks at the slave cylinder and what you need to do is REPLACE the clutch master cylinder!I do not recommend a rebuild go to auto zone they sell the whole unit with the reservoir,and you will have to bleed the air out at the slave cyldr once installed.Typically with this issue the pedal sticking is low fluid,leaking slave clydr,or a bad clutch master clydr.Worst case is you need a new clutch,or throw out bearing and pressure plate.Normally a failing a clutch it will slip in any gear and or not shift into a particular gear.Try the simple stuff first over a new clutch/bearing assembly.

It all depends on your driving style and how often the clutch is used. If you do a lot of city driving, the clutch will last far fewer miles than if you drive hundreds of miles without stopping. If you "ride the clutch" when you drive, the clutch might not even make 20,000 miles.

That year is NOT ajustable. It sounds like it is TIME for a NEW clutch. It may just be the clutch slave cylinder too. Check it first.

check your clutch fluid...i had the same problem on my s-10. if your clutch fluid is low fill it up with either clutch fluid or break fluid works too. make sure that your master cylinder isn't leaking too, this could be the cause of low clutch fluid. (you should check that every six months)New Answer HeadlineThe slave cylinder needs replacing. This is located under the vehicle, possibly on passenger side as long as it is an external one however on some truck models it will be located inside the front of the transmission thus meaning transmission must be dropped to get to it This is what makes your clutch work very similar to the breaking system beings how at times if had a leak you would need to top off the fluid level(brake fluid) and then bleed the clutch to remove air from line and to bring pedal pressure back up that will in turn allow you to shift gears the slave cylinder will have a bleed nipple on it just like your brake lines do AnswerIt depends on the car. If your clutch is hydraulic--not all of them are, kids--you've either got a low (well, no) fluid condition, a bad master cylinder, a bad clutch cylinder or a leak somewhere between the two cylinders.If it's a cable-operated clutch, the cable needs adjusting really bad.
