    How do I know if its my master or slave cylinder failing ?

    Looked online and came to the conclusion that either my master or slave cylinder is failing. Can't seem to see any leaks , clutch was really spongey and now is really loose but it still goes into gears just fine. Is it worth just replacing both ?
