We looked at C6 and G8 put the problem with them is that you can not buy the reservoir by its self only with the Clutch master cylinder.

Bump. Any more info on a fix for the reservoir/cap itself?? I'm sure there are others like me that just want the problem fixed instead of having to install a 2nd reservoir. It sounds like replacing the OE cap with another OE cap doesn't work either. :(

Here is the way i see this, When GM mixed the reservoir's what they for got is that on the clutch side we move the pedal faster then the brake's side, that makes the fluid return faster then the brake fluid, With them using a cap made for a brake reservoir that is made to be open to the air that is why it leak's, the clutch reservoir is a thread on cap so its made to keep Fluid in.

The automobile is over 100 years old. I dont understand how simple things like this get overlooked

Not so sure if they're constantly replacing caps and reservoirs under warranty...

I too had my master cylinder cap leak, and after three caps I fixed it my self for $2.59.

Basically what I did was cut out the bottom of a plastic milk jub, and make it the same size as the rubber gasket in the master cylinder top. Trim it down so it fits under the rubber gasket and allow for the three tabs. It has worked for over 7 months. Don't use the sides as they are too thin, but the bottom is just right. Laugh all you want, but my fix worked and even the dealer thought it was cool.

Here is the link to the fix, and it is post #15
