Default where's the clutch fluid reservior

i'm a honda guy and it is very weird that i don't see clutch fliud reservior.
how do you guys change clutch fluid? or bleed?

also, i notice in the maintenance manual that there is no information as to flushing out the brake fluid nor clutch fluid.(which it should be.. every 15k-30k)

I'm not 100% sure, but it might use the brake fluid reservoir for the clutch also. Not sure how many companies do that, but my old car was that way.

Yeah they both use brake fluid, so one reservoir, two different cylinders(one for clutch, one for brakes). I did a quick search and the tC only has one. Even found a good story where a Toyota tech told a tC owner they had two seperate reservoir's, and then couldn't find the clutch one under the hood when he tried to show them, because it wasn't there. So I'm assuming ours are the same. But if I'm wrong, don't worry, someone will let us know.

As for bleeding them, it's probably a good idea to do them both at the same time. Otherwise you might end up chasing a problem back and forth trying to eliminate air bubbles.
