Master & slave cylinder for Alfa gt & brake calliper

hi Guys

I have 2 questions .

1. My clutch pedal stopped working this morning and I'm a bit stuck. It was very heavy in traffic and also the first half of pressing it down was smooth enough but the second half was very heavy.
I reckon it's one of the master or the slave cylinders but I'm not sure which . I looked at the master cylinder behind the clutch pedal and it seemed ok , bit of greece there but can't really tell if it's working or not . If I pump the pedal a few times I can get the clutch working but that's it. Not exactly ideal .

Anyhow how do I know which one to replace and does anyone have a PDF on how to replace them . I know where the slave is , again a PDF would be great .

Oh also my driver side rear calliper is ceased I think , . I had it off this morning too. Anyone got a PDF on how to dismantle and lube free up the piston . When I pulled up the handbrake it seemed slow to move and very gritty when I was winding it back in to put the brakes back on . Is this a job I can do myself . I did the egr recently .

Thanks in advance

sounds like your clutch is on its way out, this puts alot of strain on the slave cylinder, my clutch pedal went to the floor and stayed there, unless i pumped it back up, but next thing the slave cylinder ruptured, and my alfa specialist said it went due to heavy clutch, (on its way out)
