Indeed, Airbag faults never self clear, always need physically the codes wiping to reset.

The usual local garage I use for MOT's etc
Given its virtually undrivable, im fairly limited in where I can get it.

Bet your glad youíve paid to have it done. Heartbreaking to have to redo it yourself immediately due to a faulty part

Connected up my spare battery after charging it.

I have have a pedal that feels like a clutch pedal, but it doesnt work too well!

Got it into reverse and out the drive fine, round the corner fine, out of gear at junction and stall!  struggle to get it out of gear,
restart, into reverse move a bit, stall, and stuck in reverse again.
cant restart it in neutral without it stalling, so into first to start and move together, out the road into a big enough circle to drive back in, and back on the drive!

Can see fluid on the road where I was attempting manoeuvres

Not gonna move it again until its going in for repair, with someone to tow if needs be.

fluid level is ok, but its clearly still loosing, and nowt to see in the bay.

To add insult to injury I dropped the battery as I went to put it back in.  Acid all over the drive now and more expense.
If it wasnt for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all   :'( :'( :'(

Right.  So what shouldI be looking at.
1st clutch & Dmf did 80000 and 6 years
this one has 56000 and 3 years under its belt.

Should I be just getting this slave done, or given the work involved, everything while its in bits?

Had a good a look as I could from above and nothing looked like it had leaked.

Yes. Plastic nipple. Obviously wet now but was bone dry when I started

What do we actually think is broken then?  And in what way?

If it's anything like the Astra clutch nipple it is very fiddly and difficult to know if it is actually open.  IIRC the astra one took a fair bit more than the 1/4 turn the brake nipples took.

Correct....Now bled, pedal used while bleeding too.
Tank full, normal, if not stiffer pedal.

Closed all up, used pedal some more, can see no leaks in the bay.....should I be peering up underneath, or nowt to see there anyway?

got an easybleed. 

What are you suggesting....Easybleed onto that nipple, force fluid back to header tank...

Pedal sorted.

However, what does that actually give me, short term fix assuming I ensure level always full?
