res filled, pumped brake and clutch pedal a lot, engine on and off, pedal still sinks straight down?

Has the level dropped much? Is there a bigger leak underneith now?

Sounds like a pipe or seal has given way and all you are doing is pumping fluid, not building up any pressure .... :(

Has the level dropped again and the fluid puddle got bigger?

The only good thing about VW is that they use an external slave rather than a concentric one...  ::)

Budget for three part clutch kit and flywheel...

So pop the output of it into the top of the res with the pedal wedged down and use your hand to create a basic seal, run the inflator for a bit.

Your not trying to create huge pressure, just enough to try and force some fluid through (you really need to pressure bleed upwards on these setups but you cant get the battery tray out)

If it's run dry, master might also be shot...

Just had this very conversation about my Merc as they cannot get it to bleed...

Slave failure on my Altea had a similar net result, but fortunately that was under warranty. Clutch master on the Omega seems to suffer abuse more readily... :-\
