That's exactly what happened to me two eyars ago. It looks like
that is a weak spot. I purchased both the master and slave,
but by the time I was finished with the master, I called it a day.

The most important tool is a "sawed off" (ground off really)
 6 mm allen wrench. You need to take it down very clsoe
to the right angle bend.

The other useful tool is one of those spring loaded parts retrievers,
the ones you push from the top and four claws come out
from the cone at the bottom. The stalk is flexible.......
anyhow, put the hex head bolt into it, and you can then use this
tool to get the screw into the spot while you hold the master cylinder
in place. It will take a few tries...and curses to the stupid designers,
like replacing the high pressure side power steering hose on the 
steering gear.......

On he positive side.....the clutch felt a lot lighter after the R&R.
And quite a bit of gunk came out when I bled the fluid out.
