Fluid leak under driver's dash

Hello all,

I have a leak under the driver's side dash of my 2003 Focus ZX3. I never see it on my shoes, but it's dripping on the floor mat over time. I got under the dash to inspect things and saw a fluid coming out of the cylinder the clutch pedal operates. The fluid seems to have a very light green tint to it and no odor, but it's hard to tell, since it's slow and I can only get a small drop on my finger at any one time. There is no other fluid anywhere under the dash and everything else is clean. What is this and what needs to be done to repair it? Thanks!

Re: Fluid leak under driver's dash

That would be the clutch master cylinder. It needs to be replaced. Make sure the fluid in the reservoir is full until you do or you won't be able to release the clutch.

Welcome to the forums.
