    I am trying to replace the clutch master cyclinder and removing the
    brake booster is problematic. There is 1 bolt at the bottom that
    appears impossible to remove due to the proximity of the left wheel

    Has anyone replaced their master clutch cylinder and tell me the best
    way to do it?

    It's been a good few years since I did one of these on a 505, but as
    far as I can recall I didn't remove the brake servo to do a clutch
    master cylinder. Just disconnect from the pedal and remove the two
    fixing bolts for the cylinder under the servo. Then disconnect the
    pipe to the slave cylinder. Of course I work on right hand drive cars
    here. May be different on LHD!
    The problem comes when you try to bleed the system. Let me know when
    you get to that stage and I'll tell you how I do it.

    Thanks Nigel,

    I brought in a mechanic, it took over 3 hours for 2 of us to
    change..... had to remove the vacuum booster to access the outboard
    nut on the master cylinder.

    Due to the age a lot of the plastic cowling disintegrated in the
    process, and rthe leaky clutch master spewed fluid all under my rugs

    Just glad it's done, thanks for your reply!
