Clutch fluid drop

Recommended Posts

Would the change in weather have any impact on the clutch fluid. I've checked for leaks in the obvious places and found none. I then bled the system and noticed quite a lot of air bubbles in the system and the fluid was black.  Seems ok now but odd that I've not been able to find any leaks.

Master cylinder seal kits seem to be readily available for about £3.50. Are they easy enough to fit? Any tips on what to do first would be appreciated.  Is it just a matter of bleeding the system first and then taking the master cylinder to bits.

No, just release the M/C from the pedal linkage and pipe to slave
Empty the M/C
Remove the circlip holding the push rod and tap M/C to release piston
Then just dismantle the push rod and seals and replace
Refit in reverse
Top up and bleed from the slave cylinder
