Gutted! mine went on Tescos car park in Fforestfach :lol: luckily the recovery guy was an ex taxi driver from Cardiff, and knew exactly what the problem was as he drove a good 3 or 4 600 diesels :)

What a bargain :cool: told me what to do to nurse it home and she did me proud. Got the part and fitted for around £100 iirc, was couple years ago now mind.

well after the motor factors saying they don't do master cylinders i have had a look at the slave cylinder and its failed not the master(although that is weeping a little) after all (soon as i removed the rubber boot out poured the fluid.
rang them back and they said there are 2 bore sizes(19mm and 17mm and i will need to check which one i have.
any one know what size it will be from this part number LB06MZ037BD or L14D11.
thanks

edit
just priced a slave cylinder from local motor facors and its £49
