    You have a cylinder connected to the pedal, the pipe going from this cylinder to the gearbox where there is a clutch release bearing which is also part of the hydraulic clutch system. Hopefully it's only the pipe or pedal cylinder as if its the release bearing you may as well do the clutch while you're in there.

    Change the brake & clutch fluid first, or aleast try bleeding the clutch. Could be as simple as that

    Slave cinder is probably letting by. It's situated in the box I believe so it's a box out job. Whilst your there you might aswell change the clutch. Whilst that's off you have to change the dual mass flywheel. The slave cylinder is probably only about £50 but the labour added on top with the parts my bill came to £1200. I had to have this done about 18 months ago.
