The clutch master cylinder is located behind the clutch pedal. Via the release bearing, the master cylinder helps boost the clutch, which is released when the clutch pedal is depressed. When this happens, you can change gears.
The clutch master cylinder is constantly activated while driving, so it becomes worn over time.
Below, we have provided some examples of how to detect a worn or defective clutch master cylinder.
Several of the above conditions will mean that it is necessary to take the car to a garage to have a proper look at what the problem is.
The typical problem with the clutch’s master cylinder is that the system is lacking pressure. This is due to wear on the cylinder itself or to leaks in hoses and O rings.
It is always a good idea to keep up the car's service inspection and to make sure that the clutch system is inspected as part of all service inspections.
