Default 6spd Manual Clutch Drain Plug Location??

I would like to get all the clutch fluid out and replace it with dot 4 but can't find the bleed valve. Can anyone get their hands on a diagram that shows where that valve is?? Should be the same as the ones on calipers. I would appreciate the help guys. Thanks

Worked like a charm Eddy, thanks. My 9 year old daughter was the one pumping the clutch pedal, my 7 year old son handing me stuff. I was filling, opening and closing the valve. They did good, so proud of them.

Pedal sticking when really hot and the dealer will tell you it's the clutch to take your money but it three things.

First upgrade the fluid to Synthetic Dot 4.
Two, lithium grease the shaft behind the pedal and if those two things don't work, then replace master cylinder and problem will be fixed.

My pedal is so firm now. Works like a charm, I'll also get that SS line soon.

Same issue here. I realized the clutch fluid was little low, and filled it with Prestone DOT 3/4 fluid. When she sticks the tiniest bit, two or three pumps to get the fluid in and she's good to go.

Take that crap out and fill it with Synthetic Dot 4, you'll be happier. Same for your brakes.

Impossible, it's a two man job or a man and two small children job..lol. One pumps the clutch 5 times and holds on the fifth, that's when you have to open and close the valve quickly. It takes a bunch of times to recycle the entire old fluid. Do this method until all fluid in there is gone, refill and drain again, now you're done, refill and enjoy.

Wish you would do a DIY on this..
Ik this isnt the right thread but I have a problem with mine

First of all my shifter is lose while its in gear, but i think its just the bolt towards the bottom of the shifter that may have came lose.
Also, I feel as if when i shift it is not as smooth as when i bought the car, Maybe i need new transmission fluid? or what raz has done with refilling the clutch fluid?
Thanks for anyideas guys
