Honda Civic Type-s clutch fluid

Hello friends,
I really appreciate your concerns and supports.
Can I use Honda brake fluid DOT 3 for Honda Civic Type-s clutch or which fluid do you advise?
Thanks

I tend to use dot4 as that's what it says on the cap you unscrew. Better safe than sorry

The transmission is i-shift. You mean I can use DOT 4 fluid.

On the clutch reservoir tank, the lid should have some writing on it. Mine says dot 4 so that's what I use, yours may say differently, have you tried having a look??

Mtf3 is gearbox oil (transmission fluid).
So far, brake, clutch and transmission fluid have been mentioned

Flashy is correct, MTF3 is transmission (gearbox) fluid. Clutch fluid is same stuff used for brake fluid. I've just had mine replaced on my 2.2 cdti and used Dot 4.
