Clutch leaking inside car

Hmm my clutch is leaving hydralic fluid on my mat in my car recently. I checked where the leakage comes from and it seems to come from some kind of hydralic resovoir attached at the top of the clutch lever. I was thinking maybe a seal is worn out or so. Would anyone know what part I'm talking about or how much and where I could purchase a new one?

Chalk up another one, mine went recently.

Funny - I went to Europe for three weeks, and left the car parked in the garage, when I came back the clutch felt really stiff. I attributed that to sitting idle, but it didn't go away.

This morning the clutch pedal did something it had never done before - a squeak from inside the footwell when depressing the clutch. Sure enough, upon inspection, it was covered with fluid, and would have started dripping soon.

I'm so glad I bought the extended warrantee.
