    clutch/slave cylinder probs - HELP

    hi guys i hope you can help me here
    ive got a x reg 1.7 astravan and the clutch pedal lost all pressure as i was tryin to take van out of 2nd gear in a car park
    now as soon as i put the van in gear with clutch down it wants to go...
    theres no pressure on the clutch pedal anymore so tried bleeding clutch but had no luck. when i looked at it again today the slave cylinder on top of the gearbox is leaking and i can pull it out an inch with my hands
    any advise on what to do? thanks!!!

    Sounds like the seal may well have gone mate

    They're like £2 from vauxhalls. Had to replace mine when doing the gearbox. To remove, there is a circlip on the connector on the pipe, pull it off with some needle nosed pliers. And there is a little black seal, pull that off and renew

    Thats it bud

    Its under the bleed nipple, you should see a small circlip facing towards you

    pull that off and you'll get to the seal then, be prepared for a bit of clutch fluid though

    im pretty sure its not that as the metal housing the bleed nipple is attatched to is loose..
    with the circlp is fully in place. if i take that off theres another 'nipple' attached to gearbox with a black ring seated around it which is what i can pull an inch out of the box??

    just to make things clearer, once the 'blue' is removed the washer that yellow is pointing to is loose and can be moved freely & is where the fluid is leaking from?
    thanks

    Green arrow, pull that thing out and the big plug, you've circled blue will lift off, and underneath, there is like a nipple, with a rubber seal on it, and thats the one
