Master or Slave Cylinder?

I'm also looking for this answer. I replaced the master and bled the clutch to
no avail.

I suspect it's the slave in my case, but this is a PITA job. I'll be doing an
engine swap pretty soon, so I'm waiting until then to replace the slave.

The good thing is that the car is like that for a long time (months), so it
seems that you have time to figure out.

Good luck, and let me know the outcome.
