Clutch hydraulics problem?

Clutch fluid is dripping out of the seal on my clutch pedal in the interior of my car... I know the clutch hydraulics are going bad but how serious of a problem is this? and how much would the repair be?

Re: Clutch hydraulics problem?

Replace your clutch master cylinder -- that's what the fluid is leaking from.

This. Its a good idea to replace the master and slave cylinders at the same time too.

Aside from the mess...as long as you keep the resevoir for the master cylinder full, its not that major right now. Your leak will just get worse. Replace slave and master cylinder

Replace the slave and master cylinder, they're cheap and fairly easy to replace/bleed.
