Re: zf5 clutch problems.

Well you'll have to find the leak first! The only thing that holds clutch fluid (brake fluid) is the Master Cylinder (which is the little resevoir that is just to the passanger side of your brake booster) the braided steel line, or the slave cylinder. Replace the part that is leaking, refill and bleed just like you would brakes. The slave cylinder has a little bleeder valve on it. Hope this helps.

Re: zf5 clutch problems.

i think it has a internal slave, and i think there one unit (slave and t/o) or is that just half ton, the fluid is coming out of the bell housing

Re: zf5 clutch problems.

Well the slave cylinder pushes the fork inside the bell housing so its possible that the seal on the inside end of the cylinder is bad.
