Re: [DML] Clutch fluid

PLEASE DON'T mix it !!!!

DOT5 is silicone based brake fluid and ist NOT compatible
with DOT3 or DOT4.
DOT5 is more aggressive and may eat up the seals.
DOT5 is less hygroscopic !!!
DOT5 si not as aggressiv to paint as the others.

DOT5.1 can be mixed with DOT4.

The main difference between DOT 3, 4 and 5 is the boiling 

There is no real reason to change from DOT4 to something else.
But if you really wanna swap it - you have to flush the system 
very well.
