In May I asked my dealer to change my tires and check my fluids.
They recommended a brake fluid flush. I agreed. they said I had room left on my brake pads, etc.
Had the car for 2 weeks and then completely lost my brakes on major road. Pedal to floor. No response. After 4 pumps it came back. I went to dealership and they said it was the master cylinder. Needed replacing. Along with brake lines. I agreed.
Noticed on leaving the dealership that the clutch felt a little different, hint of vibration, but thought it was just the new hardware. It still engaged. After 4 weeks my brake light on dash started coming on, and would not go off. I went back to dealership. They say I need a new clutch.
I had zero brake or clutch issues prior to the initial brake flush. I have only 68K km and a new clutch on average is 100K. I’ve driven a standard 20+ years and never replaced a clutch. My last vehicle ran for 19 years. I get reg maintenance. But I’m not a DIY person.
Is this triple hit a coincidence? Or can those services - brake flush, master cylinder replacement have toasted my previously trouble-free clutch? I know the brake and clutch have a shared reservoir.
They say the brake fluid is pooling in the clutch due to a clutch leak.
Any help/thoughts on this that help me navigate the discussion is appreciated.
