I've done both on both my V8q and my urq and on both, even though I
only did one at a time, my new master cylinder was okay in both cases.

The fault develops slowly: the clutch contacts lower and lower until the pedal stucks in the lower position and does not return up anymore. The gears cannot be changed so the clutch is not slipping or disconnected.

> You need to change BOTH the master and slave at the same time. BTDT. First, the slave begins to stick, it puts extra pressure on the MC causing it to fail. You replaced the MC, it solved the problem for a little while. Now the sticky SC has caused the new MC to fail. So, now you get to replace both. Trust me, do BOTH. The sticky SC has stressed or possibly even torn the seals on the new MC...
