Just driving around as normal, pressed the clutch to change up. Pedal stayed down and the car is stuck in neutral.

I coasted to a stop, off the dual carriageway fortunately, and took a look in the engine bay.

Brake fluid sprayed around the bleed nipple area.

It looks like the clip that keeps the bleed pipe attached to the clutch slave solenoid, where it enters the gear box, gave out and the pipes separated.

Is this a common problem?

So, is it just a new springy c clip and a bleed from the clutch bleed point or will I have got air back in the system?


Just waiting for RAC ATM.
