78 240D Clutch Problem

I have a small brake fluid leak dripping out of the bell housing, it makes a medium size puddle on the ground after driving it. The slave cylinder looks dry from the outside. There is a small hole in the bottom of the bell housing where the fluid is comming from. Any suggestions where it could be comming from.

Thanks
Chris

I think I would just change out the slave. Its an easy job.

It may look like it is coming from inside the bell housing, but there is nothing hydraulic in there at all. If you cannot see where the leak is coming from, I would suspect the slave cyl as these take a beating.
