Default Clutch master cylinder and Slave clutch cylinder repair kit?

1996 B4 TDI: I want to rebuild my clutch master cylinder. Where can I buy seals for this? And also for the clutch slave cylinder seals as well... both are only sold as a complete new unit the places I've looked. Please advise, thanks!

I have never heard of anyone selling the seals to re-build the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder.

The new parts might be a little expensive but they do last a long time, just make sure that you get good quality parts. It's a pain to replace the master cylinder and a bad/defective slave cylinder can kill your clutch.

Just my $0.02

I knew a guy with this same problem and he just would not keep his foot on the clutch at stoplights and if he kept it in to the point it would stay down, he would just pull his toe under it and pull it up. Dont get stuck in gear when this happens though; the car in front of you wont be very forgiving.

My very first post!

Which are shot? master, slave or both?
