I was able to take a better look under the car today and my clutch/brake fluid leak is coming from the clutch housing. Pictures below...<p>Will take to a SoCal dealer soon and update later, hope all goes well, 40,000 miles so hopefully no problems.<p><IMG SRC="http://www.deztech.com/c/pics/SwedeSpeed/SlaveCylinderLeak01.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://www.deztech.com/c/pics/SwedeSpeed/SlaveCylinderLeak02.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://www.deztech.com/c/pics/SwedeSpeed/SlaveCylinderLeak03.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Clutch still feels pretty good, but I imagine I've just been lucky so far... My understanding is that they should be replacing the slave cylinder AND the clutch, correct?<p>-Aaron<br>

Re: Looks Like Another Bad Slave Cylinder After All... (MagoonR)

Even though the area is "wet" and I had these pictures of the dripping fluid, the dealer wouldn't do anything without actually seeing it drip for themselves! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I understand it's a big job and they want to be sure, but I have MANY pictures over many months of this slow leak. So now I need to monitor it closely and bring it in again while it's actually leaking and hope the dripping fluid droplet(s) will still be on the underside of the car when I get there... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>-Aaron

you should also have them log it as such and get names/times/details of when you call so that if they deny it later and say its negligence on your part... you will be armed and ready..
