    What car is we talking about?

    If the slave cylinder is inside the gearbox, pushing directly at the clutch. And you have to remove the gearbox to change the slave cylinder, then its a good idea to change the clutch at the same time.

    If the slave cylinder is fitted outside of the gearbox then atleast I would have tried without changing the clutch, but its a risk if it leaked down on the clutch 🙂
