Re: Clutch problem

Two screws - I can handle that much. And the local Honda shop no longer has a decent mechanic.

Re: Clutch problem

Okay - got the proper fluid, took the reservoir apart. I put just a bit of fluid in the unit - both in the bottom and a bit in what looks like a diaphragm. Question - does the fluid go in the black diaphragm only or in the reservoir itself? I should have initially advised - I am mechanically challen...

Re: Clutch problem

I have adjusted the clutch throw - had always been on 5 - down to 1. Seemed to initially help but that went away quickly. Will have to check the hydraulic reservoir - at half time.

Has one button that allows a single swipe and a second one that operates like a regular wiper. Specifically made f...
