Re: How does the slave cylinder leaking damage the clutch?
The transmission input shaft is hollow and the clutch release rod resides inside it. One end in the throwout bearing at the end of the slave and the other end inside the clutch housing. I guess I should add that once the leak starts there is no where for the fluid to go except down the rod and into the clutch. The weep hole may or may not let all the fluid out but at least you will KNOW you have a leak if you check it periodically.
