    Hi, ive done a little bit of research and it seems that my clutch master cylinder may be leaking. I have noticed over the last month that theres some oil on and around the clutch pedal. Is this an easy fix? Ive seen the part for about 50 quid but wondering how hard it is to fix.

    Thanks

    Yeah mine was leaking about 6 months ago, brake/clutch fluid dripping on to plastic trim under clutch pedal, I just left it (wiping it away every few days) its does not leak anymore but just creaks everytime I change gear now!!

    I should get it replaced but like most things intill it fails completly (and im stuck somewhere) It wont get fixed...

    Here is a guide

    thanks for the link, looks like a pain in the arse job, may take it to a garage to do if it isnt too much money.
