I have been reading many previous threads, but I need some folks to explain it to me like I was a three year old. I don't understand the 355 clutch system??? Today I suddenly lost my clutch pedal. For a moment, it felt like I might be able to pump it up and recover function, but that was quickly dispelled. There was a melon sized puddle of brake fluid under the clutch pumpkin. My gut told me my slave cylinder must have given out and on the tow ride home, I thought about removing the external slave, bleeding the system and getting back on the road in a few hours. LOL...... Where is the clutch slave? Is it part of the throw out bearing? How is it fed fluid? I am lost.... I removed the pumpkin and my flywheel, disc, and pressure plate look great. Prior to the pedal dump, my clutch was working fine, and felt fine. What do I need to replace? Are the Hill Engineering upgrades worth it? My pedal loss and fluid loss came upon in an instant....Is this normal? I would have thought it would have started with a few drops on the garage floor, but this was a sudden failure. Some threads speak of parts that are prone to cracking? what parts? Lot of questions and I hope there are others who are equally confused and this thread can create some clarity.
