John; I'm sure you're right but mine only does urban driving and the S/S works faultlessly all the time! I'm guessing that's at least partly down to climate.

You could but it may melt off in the hot engine bay assuming you bought a braided strap, I bought a plastic covered one for about £4 (Think jump lead type cable) 250mm long 8mm holes at each end, so will out last the car, the braided ones suffer due to the saltly water thrown up. Note you have to remove the slave cylinder to get to the nut, DONT let the piston(on a spring inside) push out as air might get in, I jammed it against the engine to stop ours popping out, but could easily slip?

I managed to snag a newer but essentially same one as removing but (no corrosion) itís wrapped in the same rubber I may nip to Halfords to see if they have grease stuff do you know of any?

I have a big tub of copper grease? Or regular grease?

Yeah slave cylinder... thatís the only bit Iím worried about so when I remove the slave I have to keep the spring from popping out?
