    Car clutch slave cylinder

    Why wasn't I consulted? Since when have car manufacturers started sharing hydraulic fluid from the brake reservoir with the clutch? My son's Laser was losing brake fluid and I was about to buy a master cylinder but couldn't see any escaped fluid. Looked on the floor pan and the fluid was dripping off the clutch pedal. I always assumed it had a cable clutch. At least the clutch slave cylinder was cheaper and easier to bleed.

    Citroen were doing it before you were born. Which is probably why you weren't consulted.

    Power steering shared the same fluid too!

    Wonder when some bright spark will try and share pedals?

    Probably the same bright spark that had both brake circuits linked together like on the Mini, you get a leak in the rear brakes and lose pressure in the fronts as well

    Given that a lot of cars are auto these days and a lot of older folk seem to have trouble recognising the brake from the accelerator recently it probably wont make any difference.

    My NC mx5 shared fluid between clutch and brakes, after a hard track session the brake pedal was ok, but clutch would go almost to the floor before disengaging drive. Would come good after a 5 minute break....this was the first time I had seen it done, but guessing it has been for years...
