Are you sure because the clutch master cylinder is a separate part according to Renault leicester who quoted me just under £60 to buy.

if the master cylinder goes, wil it leak do you know? The pedal won't return on its own. Someone in another thread of mine suggested that this would be the fault and it is not uncommon on the Megane. Do you know if they are straightforward to replace or do you need to bleed the system down.

The problem is that the pedal has been a bit notchy for a while. The other day, the pedal stuck at the bottom and wouldn't return, except by pulling it up. It won't now engage the clutch at all. In the first thread I posted, I only got one reply who said it was more than likely the clutch master cylinder. Renault leicester have also told me that it is a fairly common fault. It looks easy to remove but its the bleeding bit that concerns me. Because the reservoir is shared with the brake, do you have to bleed the whole system or is ther a way just to bleed the clutch. Oh and thanks a lot for your help on this. I can't afford to take it to Renault.

I've disconnected the master cylinder from the pedal and the spring seems to be working. It is not broken or anything. When the master cylinder was connected this morning, the clutch wouldn't engage at all.
Do you know where the bleed nipple is.

Done all of the above. Mines the 5 speed. Still can't get it to work. There are 2 clips on part 2. I have pulled the one nearest the engine up to bleed the system but even when it seems there is no air in the fluid, I still can't geg enough pressure in the pedal. Got through about a pint of fluid! The clip furthest from the gearbox doesnt appear to move. You can actually pull the pipe out with the first clip released. When I pump the clutch pedal with everything done back up, I can hear a hiss sound which sounds like it is coming from the reservoir. Can anyone help?
