master or servant??


My clutch pedal does not always come back to the "high" position.
Once in a while it stays half way down. That does not affect the clutch, my feet does pull it on high position instinctively but that sounds like sonething is going to go one day.

So the questions are:

A/ does a simple bleeding helps
B/ clutch slave guilty?
C/ or clucth master cylinder guilty?

Thanks guys

I suspect a broken or sticky spring in the master cylinder...

The train :(

From the experience I had with my car, it's option B.

Just changed my slave after exactly the same issue - £36 delivered Bendix - 15 minute job

Tried bleeding first - no better

I'd go for changing the slave cylinder first....a lot easier job, and not expensive......

I'd say it's the slave cylinder. Change it soon before it lets you down in traffic and you have to get out and push. Not an expensive repair to have done.
