Brakes bled... Now clutch pedal feels softer.

Hey guys I have a GP 1.4 2009 TJET.

Today I bled all my brakes and put in new fluid ( tetula dot 4).

I have tested my brakes and the pedal feels good and brakes feel good. Only thing is now the clutch pedal feels lighter ( I. E it is easier to push down to the floor). Is this normal I never even new they were linked or am.i being paranoid?

Thanks

Yes the fluid is linked,but unless you bleed the clutch,the brake fluid in the clutch system will be no different,so yes it's in your mind.

Just crossing my T's and dotting my i's. But done a video of pressing on the clutch pedal and a slight air escape hiss can be heard. Is this norm.

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

How do the brakes feel? Bleed the clutch and then go for a drive, last time I did mine everything was a bit soft. Had a little air in the system and I went around again with the nipples only just open enough to let out fluid with good pedal pressure, perfect after that.

Cheers

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

Hi Emerson,

the bleeding procedure is the same as for the brakes: open-push-close-release; you will find the bleeder near the clutch bell.
There are two systems used: standard or co-axial actuator, but both have the bleeder outside :-), here some pics...

BRs, Bernie

Also can anyone. Point out how much brake fluid needed to do. The clutch as I bought 1 litre of tetula but i only have about 100 -200ml left and don't want to rum out but don't want to get a whole new bottle for nothing

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

Can anyone answer this?,If your clutch and brakes use same fluid, if you car out a brake.fluid.change then why would you need to bleed clutch as all new fluid is in the car now anyway?? Thanks .

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

Two separate pumps/circuits sharing the same reservoir... Need to replace / bleed fluid in EACH one, that simple ;-)

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

If you touched the clutch pedal while you were bleeding the brakes then you're likely to have pulled air into the clutch circuit as the reservoir take-off is higher for the clutch than the brake (as mentioned above - same reservoir but two separate outlets for brake and clutch)

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

Bare in mind it's probably in your head, because of the effort of pumping the brakes, and those feeling better.

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.
