The first job was to sort the clutch. The problem was that the pedal had no feel and would drop to the floor. Apparently this a common issue on E30s, and most people seem to advise replacing both the master and slave clutch cylinders.

So I ordered up a new slave and master cylinder. Fairly easy job to replace them both, whilst I was there I cleaned up the reservoir, replaced the reservoir cap and painted the bracket.

Old master cylinder.

New master cylinder.


After clean.

Master and slave cylinders installed.

Bled the system and the clutch now works perfectly. On to the next job!
