Question about Citroen Cars & Trucks
As I was driving I went to change gear the clutch pedal stuck in the down position.The vehicle was in gear and continued to drive. When I looked under the engine there was fluid which appeared to have come from the relief nipple on the slave cylinder adjacent to the gear box. The fluid level in the fluid reservoir was still at the correct level. I managed to get the vehicle in 1st gear with engine switched off. I then started the engine as i was on a downwards slope i managed to drive the vehicle a short distance to get me home in first gear. I have already had a new clutch fitted to the vehicle as it failed after 30,000 miles. The vehicle has now done 50,000 miles can anyone shed any light. I need the vehicle to be able to work. Is it something that I could repair if only to be able to drive it to a local garage for a professional repair.
Always have the master and slave replaced at the same time the clutch is replaced. Most clutch kits come with a slave. If you see no oil leaks, replace the master. Sometimes a seal or line blows out. Check for oil leaks inside the cabin also.

Testimonial: "Checked for any fluid leaks from the pedal, at the master cylinder, following pipe work down to the slave cylinder at the bottom off the engine / gearbox. This is located just behind the intercooler. Found that fluid had been forced out of the nipple which is part of the plastic slave cylinder body. Removed slave which is mounted with two 13mm head bolts. Removed clip that from inlet pipe and then sealed end of pipe to stop any fluid leaking. The piston for the slave appeared not to be a very smooth action when forced in and out by hand. Removed rubber boot that covers piston rod and found that the rod was pitted and a little rusty. Cleaned with a fine piece of wet and dry. Cleaned slave body with WD40 . Refitted to mounting and reconnected inlet pipe. Checked fluid level was topped up. Pressed clutch pedal 3 to 4 times then checked & topped up fluid level. Repeated this process several times until correct pressure was felt at the pedal. It is important to check the fluid level regularly. It would have been a little easier and faster if there was a second person to help. But it is possible to do the job or your own. Thanks for the advice was very helpful."
