DIY P2R Braided Clutch Line '13 Si


Retrofit Much?
Vehicle Model
'13 Civic Si
Body Style
Here is my write-up for the Braided Clutch line for the '13 Si

Purpose: It reduces the risk of the hose expanding which in turn gives better clutch feel and response.

Tools I used:
10mm wrench
10mm Socket and Ratchet
Philips & Flat Head screwdriver
Needle Nose Pliers

I did this without removing the battery in retrospect it would've probably been easier to remove it.

The parts I have circled in red is what you will need to remove in order to remove the first part of the intake. Once you remove those parts you will need to remove the part circled in green which is the tube to the intake for the resonator. You can literally just grab and pull up.

Once you have removed all those parts you will need to grab near the back of the intake box and give it a good tug to get it out completely, should look like this when you're done with that.

The following two pictures are where you need to remove the factory rubber line at, for this you will need to use a stubby 10mm wrench to loosen the hard line. If you leave the clutch reservoir cap on at this time you will only lose a few drops of brake fluid out of the line. Once you have the two 10mm nuts loosened you can use a flat head screwdriver to remove the two u-shaped clips.

Stock clutch line vs P2R Braided. :)

Now just do a reverse install and install the clutch line then put the u-shaped clips back into place. New clutch line now installed.

Now it is time to bleed the clutch, typically with clutches you can just let them gravity bleed, which is just opening the valve and letting the fluid flow by itself. This is what I did to bleed the clutch, and I had to do it from the bottom of the car since there is no room up top. If you left the reservoir cap on then this will be very quick since you still have fluid in the hard line as well as the reservoir. The following picture the nipple circled in red is the bleed valve.

Tighten the nipple back up and test the clutch pedal and make sure everything engages like normal.
Sit back, relax and have a beer because you're now done! :corona:

my problem is I don't know how much to tighten those hydraulic hoses. I'm afraid to over torque/tighten them.
