I have a 2011 C3 Picasso 1.6 diesel VTR+ and my clutch pedal is on the floor. Having contacted my local garage they tell me that the most likely culprit is the clutch slave cylinder.
I have had the bonnet up a few times and used a torch but for the life of me I cannot find the clutch slave cylinder.
I have replaced and bled slave cylinders on other vehicles and their location has always been pretty obvious but this one eludes me.
Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
Thank you in advance

Hi

Take a look with the bonnet open at the space between the radiator and the engine.

This is where it is on the C3


Clutch slave cylinder has a distinctive bellows. I operates the clutch fork.
