    Take it back to the garage and ask them to look at it.

    Clutch broken + fluid on floor = clutch fluid leak

    NB: not brake fluid leak

    I am so glad I don't have to run a car anymore.

    They are an expensive luxury.

    Good luck with it.

    Clutch fluid uses the same tank thing as the brakes...

    really? that's crap should have got a VW separate reservoir tanks, though the PAS uses the same as the clutch

    What car is it?

    Also I know it's just passed MOT etc, but was it you who got the MOT done, and when was it last driven?

    fiesta isnt it ? if you have fluid leaking out the bottom of the gearbox & you have no clutch, then its the clutch release bearing leaking as they are hydraulic (concentric slave cylinder), gearbox has to be removed to replace it, not going to be cheap im afraid !

    it was last driven back in june when i got it... apart from the moving up and down the drive haha... MOT was done by family member who is the manager of a citroen garage..

    loads of fords share a reservoir for clutch & brakes

    So....What was the problem then?

    Dean - Havent you just fixed your car?

    Clutch fluid leaking and lack of clutch suggest either a master or slave clutch cylinder has failed. Some cars are not too bad, a few hundred, but some need the gearbox removing, big job running into several more hundred pound.
