Re: 4Kq: Hose for Clutch Slave cyl

Could be the slave, could be the hose.  The hose is actually 2
pieces, a rubber piece and a metal piece.  If you remove the hose
it's easier to pop the slave out and spin it to remove the
hose because it does not have a spin-type connector at the slave.
The connector on the metal side of the hose is a spinon.

The slave would probably leak from inside itself.  Is the fluid
you are seeing above the level of the slave?
If so, I doubt that the fluid would climb the hose :)
