Clutch fluid

So my clutch has felt a tad soft lately, and I went to put more fluid into the clutch reservoir. But I can't find it! So I look in the manual... no info there. Then I call Scion, and they say they don't know because they don't want people putting in fluid themselves, and you have to take it to a dealer! The dealers around here are the worst, and I already bought the fluid. I do not want to pay $$$$ for 2 minute's of labor to pour something into the car. Where is the reservoir? Why is this such a secret?

Look under the dash at the clutch pedal arrangement. You should see something that looks like a rod coming out of the firewall and attaching to the clutch pedal assy. Open the engines hood, look at the firewall, drivers side location where the rod would come out.

You should see a aluminum assy with a plastic resovoir above it. The fluid would be added to the resovoir. Don't mistake the brake resorvoir for the clutch, the two should be near each other. The clutch would be the one closest to the drivers side of the car.

The cap may have the type of fluid to use.

Actually, believe it or not, it is shared with the brake fluid master cylinder resivior. You will see a small hose running down from it seperate from the brake fluid hose. chances are its not your fluid. These cars are notorious for having soft clutch after a few miles, or when it gets cold. Just another reason to look forward to the summer
