    Brake fluid from the bell housing.

    hi all, when i was underneath my car yesterday removing the sump to change the pick up pipe i noticed brake fluid leaking from the bell housing, im assuming its from the clutch slave cylinder, is this a common thing??

    also im thinking while the box is out i might as well change the clutch as my car is on 81,000 and i have no invoice for a clutch change, but is my flywheel likely to need changing too? it doesnt judder or anything at the moment, it drives fine,

    any info would be a great help, cheers guys

    Yep, the slave is leaking mate. If it was Me, I'd change the clutch and flywheel regardless of it's condition while the box is out.
