What sort of job are we talking?  Full clutch change, or easier?

Yes, as its leaking it will self bleed so brim the res and pump a dozen times, then top up again.

To get to the slave is a gearbox out job ..... another 100 for the pressure plate & friction plate is a small percentage of the labour. Unless you do it  :y

I cannot get into the reservoir  just cant reach, and turn without removing trim which I've no tools to remove it anyway.

Question is, Can I get the AA to do this so I can get home....
If not, its train home, and drive back tomorrow with tools and fluid.

I'd have thought recovery home by the AA was exactly what they're there for.  ???

It would be without question if I payed recovery.....its free with the bank which has always been enough.
Given when I ring, there will be nowhere open, theres not many places to recover it too

You can drive without the slave cylinder if you really have to. I've had to do it a few times. You look like a tool though when you start the engine in first at the lights and the car kangaroos forward. Then it's just a case of rev matching to change up and down the box. You'll get a couple of crunches until you get used it. Try not to stop, so plan ahead and slow for things as much as possible. If you have to stop, knock the engine off, into first and then start it in 1st and off you go again.

But if you can get the AA out, you might as well as it'll save the hassle. Having said that, the AA won't come out for it a second time, so you'll either need to drive it yourself or get them to drop it off at a garage for you.

I've done both the engine & box up and out and subframe down one side method. I think the latter is easier and sometimes (depending on engine and box, you don't need to completely drop the offside of the subframe.

Ring your garage or ring around now, then drop it there closed. Stick key through letter box, if they know it's coming, you should be fine.

The leak could be anywhere, Jimbob. Sure, you've found where it's getting out, but it could be coming from much higher up in the engine compartment and running down to that point.
The good side of this: It may be a pipe or union somewhere.......no engine out.  :y
