    Default Clutch Pipe Leaking - Advice Needed Please

    Under the bonnet of my 8v 1.9ZDT SXI CDTI Vectra 55 plate, I have a slight leak of clutch/brake fluid coming from the connection where the clutch pipe goes on to the slave cylinder at the back of the engine towards the top on the left hand side (as you look at it from the front of the car). My friends have all given me different bits of advice. Two have said it's not worth the bother because of the hassle involved fixing it but I'm not happy with that advice as a leak is a leak. Another one says that usually there's an o ring on the connection which perishes but there's no listing for this on the EPC so I'm unsure whether that applies to my vehicle. And another friend states that I should be able to purchase just the rubber connector part of the pipe as it looks to have 2 metal clips and must be detachable but I can't find this on the EPC either. The only listing that does show up is for the whole pipe which is around the fifty odd quid mark. So does this mean I have to change the whole pipe? My local scrappy also thinks that you can just change the rubber sleeve connector with the 2 clips and the only one that he has is on an Astra which is a different one to mine on appearance as it has a moulding on the back of it. Is this a reasonable solution or will it cause more problems as according to the EPC there are several different versions of the pipe depending on the model of your car and I assume they may be different diameters or something? Any comments or advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Looks like I'm going to have to go for the complete clutch pipe then. I just hope it cures the leak and that I don't end up having to change the Slave cylinder as well if it still ends up leaking.

    Yea, thanks for the input Tony. I suppose it is best to be on the safe side. The slave cylinder side of the pipe looks like it'll be easy to connect but the other side looks as if it's gong to be a pain to get to - I haven't quite figured where it connects to yet. Plus, of course, the clutch is going to have to be bled.

    UPDATE:


    Looks like my problem has been solved ( exactly a week has gone by and so far no leaking signs ). I've fitted a new o-ring on to the Master cylinder pipe end that fits into the clutch pressure pipe and it seems to have done the trick. I had purchased a brand new clutch pipe but decided to re use my existing one and so returned the new one unused and had a refund. A pack of o-rings from B & Q at £1.28 as opposed to approx £50.00 for a new pipe or even a further possible £80.00 outlay for a new master cylinder has done the trick - a lot easier on the pocket - I'm well chuffed. Thought I'd share the experience just in case anyone else faces the same issue.
