I used to use a baby's snot sucker - looks like this, to suck up the old fluid and then add fresh fluid in the clutch reservoir.
i understand why you want separate reservoirs & the whole clutch dust in the fluid & all...
but you're telling me that y'all's cars have a combined clutch & brake reservoir?!
that just seems like a ridiculous lack of engineering right there

and for mine, i have a big kitchen syringe with the tip of the needle cut off flat i'm guessing y'all typically just do the ranger method do clean your fluid?
