147 Clutch Master Cylinder (1.6 TS)

Hi all,

I've got a very low bite point on my clutch, was going to bleed it through as the pedal moves about an inch of free travel before doing anything. Had a look at the master in the footwell and fluid is leaking out of the pushrod/end seal. Has anyone on here changed the cylinder? Do I have to remove and replace or can I buy a kit with the rubbers and replace insitu?

any help received with thanks, Art

you need to replace the unit. best to remove the driver seat to get better access, even then you need a rubber back & hands with fingers longer than ET

It's tight to remove the hose from the engine side, eper recommends removing the intake manifold, which I didn't bother with, most of my time was spent removing the hose from the reservoir, ended up chopping it off, apart from that it was fairly easy
