  1. The part is still in the car, that havnt taken it to bits, they just diagnosed the faulty new slave from looking at the leak underneath the car Nightmere looks like iv lost my money and got to pay again. But what about the master cly, i asked for that to be fitted with the clutch before they quoted me, but it was still in the car in the box when i got it back, i might try saying well you got to take it back to bits to fit the master cyl you was paid to fit and never.
  2. Once the slave is back out, is there anyway you would be able to tell if it was just faulty or if they damaged it?
  3. Yeah m8, do my head in, they done the job day before crombo eve, i got car back noticed leak straight away as was stinking the car out so checked and see dripping from Bottom of bell housing. Tbh m8 the clutch pedal felt the same as before it went in, no diff at all and bitting points all felt the same but clutch was no longer slipping as before if you try change gear to fast when revs high.
  4. It is just a small garage local to me, allways seems busy. If the slave cylinder is leaking i am going to see that on my brake fluid level right?
  5. I will get the car back tommorow and check the level of brake fluid. They are saying i need to make a warranty claim from ford for parts and labour, there not saying they will put it right for free. Thing is they know i got the bits from the usa so they know i cant claim?.
  6. Thanks for the info Mick, the garage is telling me it is leaking from the new slave cylinder, so if there right, would that be a clear fluid? it does smell very smelly.
  7. Hi Mick, I had a friend look at it before i took it back to the garage, he said it is gearbox oil, it is dripping from the bottom of the bell housing. The oil is clear colour but i had just had the engine oil changed in the car too, and he charged me for new sump gasket even though before it never leaked a drop of oil from anywhere before it went into have the work done. I allways though gear oil was red? but my friend said it can be clear.
  8. Hi all, I have a focus st170 2002, i just had a clutchmasters stage 3 clutch fitted, and new slave cylinder, now i got gearbox oil dripping out the bell housing. The guy from the garage is saying that it has happend to him 5 times with fords after fitting a new slave cylinder and that i am to make a claim against ford for a faulty part and labour so he can put it right. I did call ford parts to ask if it was a common problem as the garage are saying it is but ford said no it is not a common problem and that they dont sell that many of them. Anyone else had this problem? Thing is i got the parts from clutchmasters which are bassed in usa, so i dont have a leg to stand on with then do i? or could i still claim?. Does anyone know why it would leak oil after new slave clyinder has been fitted. I did give him a new master clyinder too but he never fitted it and never said why he never. Dont know what to do next, gave the garage £980 (have other bits done) now i got a leaking gearbox, a drive covered init, car back at garage. Any advice welcomed please. Thanks
