On my 2003 C4S the clutch has been slowly engaging closer and closer to the floor.  Now I can't always shift it.  The brake reservoir is full.  I guess the first thing I would do is to bleed the slave cylinder. If that doesn't help would you next replace the slave cylinder, it was new 20,000 miles ago.


Am I correct if the clutch goes south the pedal engages high on the pedal travel, correct?  I did a search but came up dry...

Thanks for everyone's input...  I agree with DBJoe996  while I've been neglect on changing out the brake fluid I don't think it would lead to near total clutch failure.  I've ordered both the master and slave cylinder thinking I would review both for leaks, then replace the master cylinder first...


My question, could the master cylinder be bad and not leak any fluid, but bypassing the brake fluid internally?

Turns out a piece of metal got trapped in the pressure plate... Even though this piece of metal relatively small the clearances between the pressure plate and disc are also very small.  This small piece of metal kept the clutch from engaging...
