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?

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   :'( :'( :'(

If you are offended by anything I post, sorry. Just thought I'd get that in now.

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.
