U only need clutch fluid if you are bleeding the clutch system ie slave cylinder...other wise no u won't need any clutch fluid! But seeing as ur having a new clutch u more aswell get them to bleed ur clutch system

Make sure they bleed it properly, if you get the car back and the peddle feels spongy its got air in the system. And yeah Dot 4 brake and clutch fluid is the stuff.

You can do it later as long as the nipple hasn't been opened. But why do it later its a 2 minute job!

Too cheap that mate, make sure its 100% before you hand over any money. Ask to take it out for a quick spin to test before you hand money over
