If the gearchange becomes tougher due to airbubbles in the clutch hydraulic fluid, bleeding the clutch will solve the problem..right?
Now, the clutch fluid is a continuous medium extending from the fluid reservoir through the slave cylinder, master cylinder etc..so if you just open the top cover of the fluid reservoir (without doing any bleeding), is there a chance for the air bubbles to escape?
I did just that when the gearchange got a bit tough..and it became smooth again (I'm surprised). has anyone noticed such a thing before?
Thanks for your inputs..

I have a Bowden cable-type clutch hence no idea. But I tend to think that the clutch fluid would be too thick to let the air bubble escape easily.
