BTW: You should put on a separate clutch reservoir while you're at it.

+1. I dont have a manual, but a lot of dudes on this forum swear by needing a separate reservoir.

If you want the best - Castol SRF. But it's also like $70 a liter.

Correct.....and that gave me a little for the clutch reservoir as well. Although I go through enough fluid for the clutch reservoir that I normally just use Prestone DOT4 that I get from local car store or walmart.

Do a search for clutch reservoir on here and you'll find plenty of info.
