    Thank you, Tom.

    Replacing the whole cylinder is invariably a better option than replacing seals, even though the seal kits (if available) are a fraction of the price.  It’s many years since I last replaced master cylinder seals and in fact, I believe replacing seals in BRAKE master cylinders is not allowed (for obvious reasons) – an error in a clutch cylinder repair has none of the safety considerations that a faulty repair of a BRAKE cylinder would have!

    Interesting, the change of material in the cylinder, from plastic to metal, eh?  I wonder what prompted Fiat to do that?

    Thanks for the update, Tom.
