Wanted to post this for the archives.

Symptom: Brake fluid leaking from bell housing.

Cause: Slave cylinder leaking from front seal. Fluid running down inside of bell housing and leaking through drain hole.

Fix: Replace slave cylinder.

Lesson: If the slave cylinder is leaking the master is not far behind. Change BOTH cylinders at the same time.

Parts: About $60 for both.
001-295-44-06 Clutch Master Cylinder
001-295-68-07 Clutch Slave Cylinder up to 219674
201-290-03-11 Clutch Slave Cylinder from 219675
Pint of DOT4 brake fluid

Labor: About 3 hours. Pay close attention to instructions on adjusting the master cylinder rod length. May need an assistant during adjustment.

Tools: 12mm & 14mm open end, 10mm & 15mm sockets, pressure bleeder or see Haynes manual for funky procedure using the master cylinder and right front wheel.

Comments: Too bad they don't make a rebuild kit for these. Looks like the rubber just got old. Maybe the bore is worn so can't rebuild??

I have rebuilt these cylinders successfully in the past. I got the kits from an independent foreign car parts supplier in Richardson, Texas. They rebuild well as long as they're not pitted. If the fluid has been flushed regularly the cylinders will probably not be pitted.

Have a great day,

I bought them at Richardson Foreign Car Parts, they are near Spring Valley and 75.

972 690-4630.

This was probably ten years ago, but I expect that they can still get the kits. Are your cylinders free of pits? If they are not, don't bother rebuilding them.

Have a great day,
