Oil in my cockpit????

So it is late at night driving home and my feet keep slipping on my floormat, so the next day I take a look and there is oil that has leaked into the Driverside lower area.

I believe that it is coming from the clutch pedal. Is the clutch pedal pneumatic?

Has anyone else had this problem?

Thanks in advance...

-Brian

I have it.
It's a 200$ repair unless your under warranty.
It's your clutch master cylinder leaking above your clutch pedal.
The sealant , that is suppoused to keep it all in is bad , so it leaks.
Only down side is the oil on the rug really.
As long as you check your levels every 4 or 6 months you'll be fine.
Or you can change it out, 50 for the part 150 for the labor since it's in such a bad place to exchange.

do not run it this way. the clutch and brakes share the same resivoir.
get it fixed now.
keep an eye on the level in the resivoir since another sign is your brake light coming on or flickering if this level gets too low.
brake fluid isnt good on carpeting, paint, rubber, etc.

sweet bejeebus... otay...lol yeh i figured it was break fluid, so i am glad that it is only getting on my rubber floor mat

I should figure out if my car is still under warranty or not. then decide if i will repair it myself. It can't be too difficult.

Thanks for the info.
Brian

Be careful with brake fluid, not only does it "assist in braking control" but the stuff is terribly corrosive, get some on your paint and your car will look like a mid-90's purple Neon. Mix it with pool chlorine and it will smoke and ignite.

Don't mess with brake fluid.

Yep exactly the case.

$50.80 on the part, some charge for fluid and 2 hours of labor @ $70 an hour.

$206 total

-Now I can finally feel the clutch engaging too.
