Not sure if it is relevant. Although recently having got or had several cars with hydraulic clutches, I have never worked on one (hydraulic clutch) but the brakes on my GT were getting worse. As it is in for a cambelt service tomorrow I tried to push it until then but last week the brakes almost died.
I just dropped the car off at a local garage, no time to fix it myself anyway. Garage owner told me as soon as he got in the car he could not check it because the clutch pedal was on the floor. I had noticed from time to time over the last month that selecting second gear when cold was difficult. It turns out my brake problem (I was loosing fluid and very spongy brakes) was the clutch slave cylinder.
Only been three days since I picked it up but all seems good.
Priorities I find, are usually someone else's.
Statements above are all my own opinion and not fact.
