Our stainless steel clutch line is a direct replacement for the factory rubber line. Over time, the factory rubber line has a tendancy to dry out and swell. Left unchecked, these can eventually burst, resulting in a loss of hydraulic pressure, which means you won't be able to operate the clutch!
Plus, since this line does not expand and contract like the factory rubber line does, clutch engagement feel is improved as well.



Our clutch line is a direct replacement for stock. In addition, we coat the stainless line with a clear plastic coating, to prevent potential damage from road debris. Fits all 2006 + Civic models

priced @ $30 shipped in the 48 states

Thanks!

we can do a run for that is DOT certified for an additional cost, and wait time (+$4 per line, and about a week, minimum order is 5 lines), but in the 10 years we have offered these for various cars, no one has requested it, so we don't bother stocking it

they are a direct replacement for the stock line. Best bet is to grab a copy of the service manual to reference, it's very straightforward

yes, you have to (and should) bleed the system

the fluid your clutch system uses is brake fluid - just like brake fluid, it's hygroscopic, meaning it absorbs water. Over time, as it does this, it's boiling temps drops signifantly, as well as its compressibility. This is why you might notice your clutch pedal doesn't quite feel like it did when the car was new, or why sometimes the pedal gets mushy after you've been hard on the car

we suggest fully bleeding the brakes and clutch fluid once a year - its inexpensive, easy to do and keeps everything working the way it should

best bet is to pick up a factory service manual, or just bring it to a shop you trust

bleeding the clutch takes all of 10 minutes ;)

dude - its really not very difficult. Take the old line off, put the new line on, refill/bleed lines as necessary. Viola.
