Stil ironing out my initial problems.

Drove abourt 200kms last night on freeway-car went beautifully.
This morning I have no clutch - just freeplay on the clutch pedal.
Discovered that the clutch oil shares a tank with the brake fluid and the small resevoir was empty with a small puddle underneath the clutch.

Any easy answers?

Thanks guys

This diagnosis is as good as it gets. The clutch master is gone. The clutch/brake fluid leaked through the seals of the master cylinder onto your carpet!

You can try to rebuild the clutch master for $10 before spending the $100+ on a new one.

I usually rebuild them once and then replace them at the next failure.

Spot on jefspg.
I was quoted $220 AUD for the part and 5 hours labour. Is that excessive?
Is it a straightforward job?
