    Got a problem with my clutch, after a few minutes of driving the pedal sinks to the floor and won't come back up, clutch bite ends up near the floor (although the clutch is fine, no slipping etc).

    I've been told this is either the master cylinder of flywheel? I've got a receipt showing that the slave cylinder was done in the last 15k so im assuming thats still ok.

    Is there any way to tell which is going other than replacing the master cylinder and hoping for the best?

    Dont fancy spending big £££ at the minute :sob:

    Is the fluid level in the reservoir normal. Could be fluid leaking past seals in the master cylinder. I would be doing the master cylinder before having the gearbox off.

    Either master or slave, As you slave has been changed it looks like being master. £50 will get you a master cylinder and a good few hours to fit it!!!

    Its not unheard of slaves failing even after being replaced though!
