Well today when i started the car i notice some noise when the clutch was pressed. Drove the car and When i was parking i pressed the clutch pedal and i noticed a noise like a cable broke. No clutch anymore!
Some oil on the floor.:(
No oil on the clutch master cylinder reservoir.
So i think the master cylinder went.
Anyone had a problem like this?

It`s usually the seal inside the cylinder that starts to leak. You can rebuild the cylinder by putting in a new seal. User Lukits01 (Sena Pratama) can tell you more about it as he had the same issue.

What clutch are you using Nuno? Because a stiff pressure plate will eventually cause these problems. Anything more than a stage 1 clutch will wear out the cylinder. It`s never designed to handle a stage 2 clutch or more.

Hi paul, it's a cooper fiber mugen clutch.
I also think it's due to this type of clutch. Thanks

I`ve searched long and hard to find an aftermarket solution. The clutchmastercylider from a Ford Modeo might fit after some extensive fabrication and you get rid of the Honda slave cylinder and release arm, but that means putting a custom Ford hydraulic release bearing and hydraulic lines inside the clutch bellhousing. Not worth the effort.

The Civic SI clutchmastercylinder is of a completely different design compared to that of an FN2, so it won`t fit. Sorry.

Mugen clutch...

But had a problem shifting at 8600+ that is now solved. Lately it was hard.

But for me the cause was also the oil of the clutch hidraulic system. What was left in the reservoir was like mud so it had water. The dot 3 or 4 oil used had absorved water (normal in this oils). I think it was never changed by honda so it was not doing is job. So change this oil!

Stage 4?! Its a turbo? If it's a na you don't need that even with the 2.2. I think.

:) Not a turbo, pure N/A... maybe a tad bigger than 2.2, but not much. I did look at the stages 3.5 (CompetitionClutch and Clutchmasters) but ClutchMasters stage 4 seems to be the preferend and most tested option around with very good reviews.

Can somebody confirm that this is the part that causes the squeaking noise?I had assumed that it was the cylinder behind the clutch pedal,im positive its coming from here.
