brake master cylinder and clutch master cylinder

Alright, my fluid is leaking and coming out of my clutch pedal. Do I order a clutch master or do I order a brake master cylinder. I typed in brake master cylinder into the search function and always got fluid leaking onto the clutch pedal. However I also see that people are replacing the clutch master cylinder. Which do I have to replace and order? The clutch master cylinder or the brake master cylinder.

It makes even the Enzo and the Porsche Carrera GT feel slow and pointless. It is a triumph for lunacy over common sense, a triumph for man over nature and a triumph for Volkswagen over absolutely every other car maker in the world.

Sincerely Yours,

02 Vs. 03

Help, would anyone know if the 2002 Focus SVT and the 2003 SVT have the same clutch master cylinder? Mine is leaking from the inside.

Leaking Clutch master cylinder

the clutch master cylinder in my 2002 ZTW was replaced under warranty in 04 and it is now leaking again.

Seeing others with the same exact problem (leaking down onto the clutch pedal) it looks like a defective design that no one wants to own up to!

Question Clutch master cylinder ?

So here is the big? Ihave a manual trans. Just bought a 2006 zx4 and I went to top off the fluids. When I tried to service the clutch reservoir I kept adding fluid and it wasn't coming up to the full mark. I looked under the car and found a puddle of fluid. I jacked the car up and found about a 1" line coming off the firewall where the fluid was coming out. The weird thing is the line didn't look broke at the end but looked liked it belonged there. Does anyone know if it in fact does belong lime that, maybe As a overfill line? I dont have any performance issues.

I've not heard of anything like that. If your brakes and clutch are working, then you don't have any problems.
Be eclectic.

If you are getting a trickle from cyl. piston, it'll run down the firewall... I've seen it on a few other cars before.
