Default Re: Clutch Hydraulics Diagnosis

Finding leaks is easy as long as you can keep an eye on the hydraulic clutch components. I usually start by looking under the dash where the clutch pedal mechanism ends on the firewall or bulkhead, article review sample here. The master cylinder is usually located here. If the master cylinder leaks, replace it. I would also recommend replacing the slave cylinder at the same time. In this way, you know that all working parts of your hydraulic clutch system have been addressed and should function normally from now on. It would be a real problem to go back and replace a slave cylinder after replacing the master cylinder.
Check the slave cylinder like a master cylinder if you have access to it. If your slave cylinder is part of your release bearing assembly, I would recommend replacing it when you replace your clutch.
