Good morning,

I have a 2012 180 sportline van with 57000 miles on the clock. There has been zero indication of any clutch problems over the 1.5 years I have owned it.

I parked the van on the drive as usual and when I got in it to drive away the next morning the clutch pedal just fell to the floor, there is no pressure there at all. I have also noticed some fluid pool on the drive which is central to engine bay.

Surely if it was a slave cylinder failure I would have had at least some other warning symptoms?

What are your thoughts?

At that age, it’s probably the slave cylinder gone. You might get a temporary reprieve by bleeding the clutch. However, I’d suggest, from experience with my Caravelle which is a similar age, that the slave has started leaking.
It’s a gearbox out job, so might as well replace the clutch and DMF whilst in there.
