First Post.... long time lurker... and by no means a mechanic...
OP did u get this resolved?
I have the same problem. From what i saw under the dash is that there is a sensor that sits on top of the Master Cylinder. This sensor is what makes the clicking in my truck (I believe its purpose is to ensure the clutch is depressed prior to starting the engine). From what I have read elsewhere it seems that there is a retainer clip inside the master that keeps the pedal from coming all the way up near the near the access panel under the steering wheel. This clip wears out and then the pedal proceeds to spring further and further up towards the dash. As this happens that sensor becomes looser and looser and starts clicking. This is where I have been at for a month or so. I am just used to keeping my foot on the clutch all the time to prevent the pedal from springing all the way up to the dash.
On this and other forums peoples suggestion seem to be to get a new "pre-bled" master slave kit. I have called three different dealerships here in so-cal looking for this pre-bled kit with no luck everyone is willing to sell me the master for around 100 and the slave for 70.
While bleeding the hydraulic system does not appear too involved it is something i would rather not do. I wish there was just a bleed screw on the slave.
tl;dr. Master is shot. Bleeding the system is difficult. Any aftermarket alternatives? or sealed kits?
