Brake master cylinder and the clutch use the same fluid. They are not the same though

Yes it is. The fluid container has a divider in it. Where half goes to the brake master, and half goes to the clutch master. If you look through the photos you will see the clutch master.

i have a 2005 zx3 and after driving off a small curb the clutch pedal no longer fully depressed. It sinks to a certain level but then just stops. I cant start the car, though I'm still able to get it into gear. I looked underneath the pedals and while my clutch pedal was clean, there was a small amount of fluid dripping down the brake pedal. Does this sound like a cmc problem, or something else?

Great write up! Rep added

I'm almost done, i just have to wait for my brother to come over and help me bleed it. Only took me about 1.5 hrs to get this far!

A few tips for those doing this in the future...
- When removing the CMC, remove the white retainer from the brake pedal (to disengage it from the plunger) so you can remove the whole bracket and CMC as one unit.

You DON'T have to remove the clutch pedal from the assembly. After removing the assembly as one piece;
- Remove clutch return spring.
- Unbolt the CMC from the bracket.
- Bump it loose (it has to slide down a little).
- Pull the white plunger off.
Install new CMC onto the bracket in reverse order;
- Approximately position CMC on bracket.
- Slide plunger onto pin.
- Slide CMC into place, then bolt it in (may take some finagling).
- Re-install return spring (easiest method - put spring onto the pedal first, then using pliers put the other end onto the bracket.

If you DO unbolt the clutch pedal, put some loc-tite on it when putting it back together. This will prevent it from coming loose (some people have had that problem).

In the engine bay;
To remove/replace the hard to reach bolts or clips without dropping them:
- Buy a cheep extendable magnet. It's worth it's weight in gold.

Smile Wow.

Amazing guide. I did all of this with minimal tools. Took me a grand total of about 6 hours. I feel proud. Cheers!

^^Sorry to hear it took you 6 hours, but it's still better than paying shop labor to have it done!
