clutch sticks to the floor

A few times the clutch would stick towards the floor with enough room to pull it back up with my foot. Yes on rare occasions while driving. Now it seems to go all the way to the floor and I have to get out of the car and reach with my hand to pull the pedal and it springs back to where it belongs. Do I have to lube or grease something for this not to happen or is something else wrong. Thanks in advance.

Slave and master cylinder. Replace both.

Yep, No question. The hydraulics are not working right. First guess slave but wouldn't be a bad idea to replace both.

I'm sure the advice above is correct. But just to make sure you should check your brake fluid reservoir. Make sure fluid is up to the full line. I had the same symptom when I was bleeding the brakes and until I got the system all purged of air I had the clutch hanging on the floor too. Just worth checking if you don't have to do the other repairs.

How much is involved and how much labor is involved.

Both master and slave cylinders need to be bled, and bleeding the slave can be a real pain. Should be a couple hundred in parts with a few hours labor. And remember that the clutch and brakes share the same reservoir so if you uncover the brake MC pickup while bleeding the clutch, you will need to bleed the brakes too.

My bad. I quoted the whole price I was charged, not just parts cost. Should have said that it should be around a couple hundered (i.e. ~200) for parts _and_ labor.

Had the same problem. Replaced both cylinders, and works like a champ, even better!

FWIW, I paid $180CDN to have both of mine changed. I prefer to do all my own work, but bleeding the slave is such a pain, and changing the master cylinder is rather ackward, so I just decided it was worth paying somebody to do this for me.
