    I'm pretty sure on this one, but thought I'd ask.

    I've noticed the clutch fluid needs topping up, which I've done a couple of times now. Master cylinder looks fine. I've not checked slave. My guess is that it's leaking...

    Quick and easy replacement job?

    Slave cylinder or flexi hose to it, either way you'll see it wet where the fluid is leaking. Easy fix, as complicated as diconnecting a brake caliper, depends on how talented you are ;)

    First job this morning to have a look under and check for leaks. A part Mike Feeney will have no doubt.

    Which is why using dot 5 fluid is a good idea!

    Also might be worth checking inside the car on the other side of the firewall, when the seal on my master cylinder went it dumped all its fluid into the footwell.

    On inspection, it's certainly the slave. It's dumping fluid past the piston onto the floor. Just ordered a replacement from MJP. An hours satisfying job ahead!
