Thanks all. I'm pretty sure you boys are right and it has been leaking as the back of the clutch pedal was ever so slightly wet when I wiped it.

As it's my daily I definitely want it sorted out!

So, new master cylinder and a fluid flush sounds like a plan?

I've also just bought some ATE typ200 DOT 4 fluid.

How long would this take a competent mechanic to do? Can it be done on a driveway if I have the car on axle stands ready to go?

Cheers!

I'd hate to say - it depends whether the pipe unions come undone cleanly or the flexi hose is shot.

NWHL charged me an hour on the NSX, as I really didn't fancy grovelling upside-down again in its tiny footwell.

Take it somewhere with a lift 11/2 hours tops even if it needs new pipes.

Brill thanks. OEM parts ordered, have to use the car once on Tuesday..! Hoping to get it sorted Tuesday evening or Wednesday.

Praying it doesn't go...

These can be towed if necessary, right? :'( Touch wood I'll live to tell the tale.

Avoid towing if you can the torsen diff doesn't like it, low loader is better. If you have AA or similar insist.

You can absolutely do this yourself. The hardest part is indeed grovelling upside down in the footwell, and that's a question of access/body flexibility than difficulty.

Worst case scenario, you can replace the hard line with a long flexi hose if the connections are buggered.
