It's on the front of the gearbox, where you'll find the slave cylinder.

It's under the battery on a derv, I'm on my mobile atm so can't easily see what car you have...

I know, I was being sarcastic!

Have you actually looked on the front side of the gearbox/bellhousing for the slave cylinder?

hi Farqui

Found it, after downloading a picture of a new one off ebay so i knew what i was looking for. They don't make it easy do they. Is it possible to remove the large air pipe to the airbox so you can get your hands in. Don't fancy removing the whole splash guard off the under side of the car. And i thought the drain plug for the gearbox was difficult to get to !!!!!!

It's not an item that need regular servicing, which means it tends to be tucked away.

Remove whatever you need to in order to complete the job. Griping about this and that won't help get the job done. I bet the worship manual says to remove half the car before you start!
