Clutch Fluid Flush

Is this necessary? The dealership recommended this to me today for my 96,000 KM maintenance. I don't see anything in the manual about doing a "Clutch Fluid Flush".

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

Its kinda necessary. the bleeder is down near the front of the tranny, looks identical to a brake bleed valve. You pour brake fluid in the clutch reservoir and flush it through. Same process as brakes.

will changing the clutch fluid make the tranny shift more smoothly (manual transmission obviously)? i've actually never heard about servicing a car for this before, thanks for the heads up.
