[DML] Re: CLUTCH PROBLEMS WITH 6944



If the resovoir is full have an asssitant step on the clutch while you
watch the slave cylinder. It should move. If it doesn't then bleed the
system. If that doesn't help just rebuild or replace the master and
slave cylinders. Any sign of brake fluid leakage is "not a good
thing". Look behind the front, left wheel for the hose coming off of
the clutch master. If you see a plastic hose replace it, if you see a
metal braided hose you should not need to replace the hose, only the
cylinders.

 THE RESEVOIR IS FULL.  I DID FIND SOME LEAKAGE WERE THE LINKAGE GOES
INTO THE TRANSMISSION BUT NOT ALOT.
