I have a 2002 E39 BMW. I went for a 2 week vacation. After coming home, I found the clutch of the car to be completly soft, and a medium size oil (or more likely, brake fluid) leak under the car. I am guessing that the slave cylinder went bad. I have to get the car to the mechanic which is on the other side of the city.
What are my options? Could I bleed the clucth at home and fill it up with brake fluid so I can drive the car to the mechanic?
If yes, could someone give me some info on how to do this on an E39.
