Hi everyone,

So yesterday the clutch pedal on my 2013 Nissan Versa W/ 53,000 miles hit the floor and never came back :crying::crying::crying:

Dealer says they want to replace the operating cylinder (slave cylinder) and or clutch disc assembly.
I suspect it is the slave cylinder. Has this happened to anyone?
I am also a little confused as to why they would say clutch disc and not cover/ pressure plate.

Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks

Guess they need to check things out to see what the problem is: could be the slave cylinder itself that failed, could be a ruptured line to the slave cylinder, could be a failed master cylinder, pressure plate, or throwout bearing, or broken throwout bearing fork. Good luck

Have you looked under the dash to see if the ball joint on the rod to the master cylinder has popped off. A few cases have been reported. Since the pedal did not return I would suspect that.

Good call on this. There is actually another thread on here of someone who had this same problem. One person chimed in and the ball joint was his issue.

Finally got a chance to get my hands dirty and dig into this problem. Hydraulic lines were intact. Checked underneath and found a puddle of break fluid that had leaked out from the transmission housing. Led me to believe the slave had gone bad. Took transmission out to find the rubber boot on the slave had blown out. Taking transmission out was not nearly as bad I thought it would be. Took a friend and myself about 7 hrs to complete the job. probably could cut that in half now that I have an idea on what in doing.

Thank you all for you input.
