Angry Clutch has no pressure and leaking from housing

My 2003 ford focus zx3 just took a dump on me while entering my driveway. The clutch hit the floor and wouldn't let me shift gears. The housing is leaking right behind the driver side wheel and the clutch pedal has nor pressure yet still springs back.

Is it coming from inside the bell housing? Does it appear to be coming from inside the trans itself, where it meets the engine? If so, it sounds to me like the slave cylinder blew out. On our cars, it's a "concentric" slave cylinder, so it's inside the bell housing and not serviceable without removing the trans. It could be the line itself though (If you're lucky!) and you could get away with replacing the line and bleeding it.

Good luck and let me know what you find!

It's coming from the opposite side of the trans and we are hoping it is the line which we forgot to replace

Hopefully it's just that! If it's coming from the opposite side, it's most likely it. Have fun with those little clips that go into the master cylinder! Just be patient. Helps to move the fuse box too.

The issue turned out to be a hydraulic clutch line
