    Default Corolla 2009 clutch pedal issue

    Eid Mubarak to Pakwheelers. Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful eid day with zeal and zest.

    Last night around 3 am I was on my way towards home when I came to know that my car clutch pedal is not working properly and just after 1 min it stopped working (lost pressure) after that I change gears without using clutch pedal

    First I thought that clutch wire is broke but one of my friend told me that hydraulic clutch is used in this particular model.
    I need some help regarding this issue as today is a eid day and I dont think I can find a good mechanic in next few days.

    P.S I owned Corolla 2009 XLI and my car mileage is 34k.
    I always learn from the mistake of those who take my advice.

    can be any of the following...

    clutch system oil leak,
    clutch master cylinder seal burst.. in which case you can either change the seals if the cylinder is good.ie no pitting or roughness inside.. seals will cost MAX 300 to 400... its a small rubber washer type thing.

    or you can buy complete kit pistons and seals locks etc for i think 1k..

    or completely new master clutch cylinder for between 2k and 3k... at least that was the price quoted to me by shopkeepers when i went asking for the rates of any japanese clutch cylinder..


    first however you must check for leaks.. then top up clutch oil and then do air bleeding.. if your car is in warranty then give the IMC people hell..

    this is not exactly a difficult job and not much different than brake fluid bleeding.

    if there is no oil leak.. and clutch feels firm and not soft than could be problem in gearbox throw out bearing ... but somehow i dont think that can even happen..

    dont go to a monkey mechanic. when bleeding.. pump the pedal gently.. not forcefully.
    the problem is not our govt... its the people..

    Thanks for the input.
    Most probably its a clutch system oil leak as yesterday I saw some bubbles around hydraulic Clutch pipe (Please correct me If its not clutch pipe)
    I also attached the pic which will give you a better idea.

    bro this is AC pipe
    as it remains cool when AC is working so those droplets which u saw are formed due to condensation.
    My dear ALLAH when I loose hope, help me to remember that Your love is greater than my disappointment and Your plans for my life are better than my Dreams.

    take some pics when you get the work done... these cylinders are quite strong.. they dont wear so easily.. the master brake cylinder is similar.. i dont want to think about it if the same thing happens to the brake cylinder at high speed..
    the problem is not our govt... its the people..

    It took more than 30 mins to loose only 1 tiny bolt/nut of master cylinder. Now I'm going to market to buy clutch cylinders kit.

    clutch and brake fluid should be changed every year, if you dont then this sort of corrossion causing failure happens.

    Unfortunately all shops were closed. I contact to a acquaintance who told me that he has Korean made master cylinder kit (chrome) for 2 k. Mine was plastic coated so I decided to wait for another day.
