I had the same problem and you have to pull the clutch master cylinder
to see that you will be replacing it. If some one had a master cylinder
with a good rod you could replace it (the rod), but I figure if I am
pulling the whole assembly I may as well put a new one in. I paid $72.90
for one from Scott M. at SJM.
You do not have to pull the complete pedal cluster. It is a bit of a
PITA. Two bolts, the fill line from the master cylinder and the fitting
for the line going to the slave cylinder. The biggest PITA was getting
at the bleed screw on the slave cyl.. I had to break loose the bleed
screw from the left wheel well with a socket and some long extensions
and a universal in there some where. I believe my bleed screw was a 11mm
and I cut down a wrench to fit in the HUGE space those engineers that
designed the car left us to work with. If you find that the bleed screw
is the same size I will see if I can find the cut down wrench and mail
it to you. You are only a day away via the mail. If yo do not already
have a brake bleeder check this one out, screws right on to the master
cylinder ( look for the European version).
This item works really well!!! Beats getting someone to come out and
pump the pedal, unless that is a way of bonding with the children.
