Clutch leak... Fiat Punto Sporting 2007.

Hi all

I've got a problem with my 2007 Fiat Punto Sporting 1.9 jtd. After finding brake/clutch fluid under the car and the clutch pedal to the floor. I opened the bonnet noticing it was leaking from where the slave cylinder enters the bell housing. The real problem I have is I can't see the resemblance comparing it to other puntos. Being a 1.9 does it mean it's fixed inside the bellhousing and does it mean engine out job? Here is a photo of where it's leaking. Another thought is the engines out of a vauxhall and maybe uses a different part...

Many thanks in advance
George

Re: Clutch leak... Fiat Punto Sporting 2007.

Hi George, welcome on board the best Fiat Forum !!

Opel (hence Vauxhall) get their engines and gearboxes from FTP (Fiat Power Train) which is a join venture from several manufacturers, so the engines are the same (or almost) so are the gearboxes on a GP and a Corsa for example...
This doesn't mean that they are 100% identical !

Regarding the clutch actuator, it is just a slave cylinder that pushes internaly on the clutch releasing fork ; you should be able to simply remove/replace it w/o engine or gearbox removal... Unless there has been some damage to the inner parts, as I'm a bit concerned about the clutch pedal being "on the floor" :-(

Anyone has different opinion, please correct me if I'm wrong ...

As usual message to newbies, if someone here helped You fix or understand your issue, hit the thanks icon (smiley at bottom right), it's free and make us helpers happy ;-) !

Re: Clutch leak... Fiat Punto Sporting 2007.

Thank you for your reply and input Bernievarian. I've just been topping up the reservoir and pumping the pedal to get pressure in the system for now. Also making sure it doesn't get to low so I don't have to bleed it as it drives fine. Just a pain as I can't find a identical one to replace it with. I think I'm going to whip it off and get a part number but thank you anyway man 👍.

Re: Clutch leak... Fiat Punto Sporting 2007.

Hi George,

do you really get a Vauxhall engine or gearbox in your car !? If not and it's standard, it should be simple to get the correct part thru a Fiat dealer...

BTW: clutch and brakes master cylinders share the same reservoir, so be very carefull not to get low...

Regards, Bernie

ps: your car is M73

Bernie, The 1.9 is M88. according to EPER. Using the fabled Fiat/Vaux M32 gearbox.

And for the benefit of GregoryB, I'm afraid the slave cylinder on the 1.9 is Concentric, meaning it is mounted over the input shaft of the gearbox.

You'll need to find the source of the leak. If it's inside the bell housing, then i'm afraid the repair is a gearbox off job sorry

Re: Clutch leak... Fiat Punto Sporting 2007.

Thank you brickfoot for all that information. That's what I feared unfortunately now recognising it's a concentric setup. When I get around to doing it I may as well do the clutch while it's out... lovely 😧. Thank you for all the help, a lovely warm welcome to the forum. Cheers 👍

Re: Clutch leak... Fiat Punto Sporting 2007.

Hi there, curious if you ever got this problem solved, I currently have a '07 Fiat Grande Punto 1.9 TD Multijet. I have the exact same leak from the clutch actuator elbow pipe leaking in the exact same place and have my clutch stick to the floor first time it gets started for the day and needs manually lifted back up.

Just wondering if you had to get the gearbox removed to get in to resolve the issue as it may be the concentric slave cylinder OR if you managed to just fix it via the clutch actuator elbow pipe and the feeds without the removal of the gearbox. Just had a new gearbox fitted and this is the issue now, constantly topping up the fluid for the brake/clutch fluid.

Re: Clutch leak... Fiat Punto Sporting 2007.

Forgive the 'bluntness' of what Im about to say...If your having a problem, after a gearbox was fitted,and from how I read your post it wasnt there before then go back to whoever fitted it and get it sorted through them.

Re: Clutch leak... Fiat Punto Sporting 2007.

I just figured if it was an easy enough one to fix I can do it myself before driving it back to the guy who installed the gearbox initially as he has n to done it correctly, but if it is the slave cylinder and it is indeed concentric, then I will need to return it to him as I do not feel comfortable taking on that kind of task myself. Just curious if the OP ever solved this
