Default Urgent clutch master cylinder leaking

Okay here is my problem I just changed the clutch master cylinder and when I go connected the lines in the engine compartment. The solid line that goes into the master cylinder keeps leaking. I took it out and notice no o-ring so I put one in and it still leaks. It's already 9 and I need the car for work tomorrow. Does it have more than one o-ring?

When I took it out from the old master cylinder I did not notice a o-ring. I put one on the first grove from the tip since the last grove is for the clip that holds it in place.

The black plastic on the end spins is that normal?

Well I'm at the part department and they don't have it so I can't check if I lost anything.

So does anyone that changed their master cultch cylinder please let me know if I'm missing something.

this type of line does not have an "oring" it has a little rubber nipple that is still inside your old master cylinder or it fell out somewhere

Thanks for the response. So there is a rubber nipple that goes in between the cylinder and the plastic part? Is there a way I can buy one ore is it part of the hose?

I was told that the slave did not have an o-ring when I replaced it, it did, but none came in the box. I was also told that the master did not have an o-ring, this time though it came with one in the box. Say yes to O-RINGS!

Although, I must admit, the ends on mine were silver and metal, not black like yours.

well the funny thing is that the end that goes into the slave is metal with an o-ring. but the one that goes into the master is a hard plastic pieces that is sliced in four pieces toward the line and now im leaning toward the nipple since the o-ring i got at the dealer still leaks. i guess ill go down to the part department again tomorrow and figure out whats missing. just hope i don't get the cold German woman that makes me scared to ask to many questions.
