    Default 360 clutch fluid leaking..

    This morning I had the first embarassing moment with my f360 modena..While switching from 1st gear to second, the clutch pedal sticked (stayed depressed) and I had to stop the car immediately. I noticed oil leaking(rear right side) so I didn't try to drive the car any more. The car was recovered to the workshop. Could that be the clutch cylinder or smthing else...?? Please advise.

    You could have a leak in the throw out bearing hydraulic system.

    Have you ever had the fluid drained and replaced?

    Fortunately it was the clutch fluid box that cracked..1 hour job.

    Are you speaking of the one mounted on the clutch bellhousing?

    Great to hear it was simple.

    It is a small aluminum block the size of a matchbox. You get access to it by removing the rear underpanel. It is a 45min job. I asked to see the cracked block, the "cracks" were barely visible. The mechanic said all you need is a hairline crack.. Strange though..I was waiting to see a split block.

    Original Ferrari part suffers from hairline cracking on one of the threaded ports:

    Thank you Mr. Hill.

    I have purchased one from Daniel and will be replacing mine with your T/O bearing this Spring when I do the clutch.

    BTW, I highly recommend Hill Engineering parts. They are fantastic.
