The clutch is pretty sensible, and if enough air got in it to feel different, it will not disengage correctly, will be difficult to engage 1st gear and reverse.

No harm in bleeding it a little, the 100-200 ml should suffice.
Yes u do think it was in head as now I've left car and gone back to it it feel fine. I may bleed my clutch next time I'm under there. But it all feels fine . Like u said. I think I was pumping brakes so much. My head was with them and as soon as went on clutch I was like WOAH... Einstein theory of relativity is in there somewhere lol

No I didn't touch the clutch. I do think it was all mind games with myself as things seem ok. I'll still keep an eye. Thanks for input though.

Re: Brakes bled... Now clutch pedal feels softer.

My Nefew had once his GP lost the clip that maintain the piping in place near the actuator: no more clutch and pedal on the carpet. A few tries later, when I arrived on site, we'd been extremely Lucky to find the clip on the parking lot underneath the car; pushed the pipe back-in, pinched a bit the clip and re-install... and clutch was back again !! No bleeding, just re-level the fluid in the reservoir (later) !

How comes ? My theory is that the clutch is WAY less sensitive to air bubles since it requires less pressure to release the plate spring (hence there is no assistance to it).

Any one can comment ??

BRs, Bernie
