How to Flush the Clutch Fluid on an 07

I have a 2007 V6 5-speed. It's really hard to shift when it gets warm and also sometimes acts like the clutch doesn't disengage completely. Normally that happens when the Hydraulic fluid is contaminated. Does anyone know how to flush the system without dropping the transmission? There is no bleeder valve on the system.

its cable controlled not fluid, you guys do have a tr3650 correct? you may just need to change the trans fluid. It takes auto trans fluid.

you will see a plug on the bottom of the transmission that has a square in the center of the plug, it's a drain plug, you get a ratchet without a socket and push it into the plug then just remove it.

Re: How to Flush the Clutch Fluid on an 07

I need to flush the hydraulic fluid in the clutch not the transmission. Th 07 V6 has the Tremec T5, probably the worst trans ever put in a mustang. I'm having problems with the clutch which is hydraulic. There is no cable. It has a slave cylendar that works as the through out bearing. Can't get to it unless you drop the transmission. There is no bleeder valve anywhere within the system. They only way to 'Bleed" the system is to use a vacuum pump on the resivoir. I tried disconnecting the line going into the slave cylendar, letting all the fluid drain, flush the resavoir with brake cleaner, then bled the brakes and used the vacuum pump. I had a little clutch last night this morning no clutch. I'll try the vacuum pump again tonight but not opptumistic. I shouldn't have to replace the slave cylendar after 10k miles, but anyone who's had or driven an 07 will agree the T5's suck.
