Part number 21526774078 is a new, unused Genuine Mini clutch master cylinder. Hydraulic clutches are similar to brakes. When your foot pushes on the clutch pedal, it transfers hydraulic fluid through the master cylinder, through the lines to the clutch slave cylinder to engage the clutch. A soft clutch pedal may mean you need a new clutch master cylinder, but first be sure your fluid is full and check for leaks throughout the system. You may also have to flush and bleed your the fluid to ensure you have no air in your line. If your clutch pedal is still soft or spongy, its likely you need to replace your clutch master cylinder.
The original parts used by Mini to build your car are available as replacement parts under the “Genuine Mini” brand. Manufactured under the direction of Mini, expect excellent quality and a premium price since these parts are exclusively available through the Mini Dealership network.
You may not realize this, but the parts that make up your Mini are not necessarily manufactured by Mini. No cause for concern, as Mini designs the part, hires a manufacturer and ensures its quality to you, including a 1 year warranty. In fact, many of these manufacturers have been making parts for Mini for decades and are experts in their own right. In our industry these manufacturers are called OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) or OES (Original Equipment Suppliers), and are often brands you recognize including Hella, Bosch, Bilstein and Lemforder. Don’t be surprised to open that Genuine Mini parts box and find a Bosch branded part inside.
