Clutch master cylinder problem

Hope you can help out, I have a 2010 C6 Grandsport convertible has only 2200 miles, took her out today and after driving with no issues for an hour stopped to get gas and when I got in touched the clutch petal and it fell to the floor and stayed there. Made it home by starting it in gear and some lucky breaks with stop lights. My question is if I clean out the fluid is there any chance the master cylinder with function again or do I need to replace it. How easy is it to replace, any body here done it, any how to video's. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Heff

I guess this site is full of drivers and not do it yourself mechanics, anyway to answer my own question, when your petal goes limp the master cylinder has failed. I replaced it myself took about 3 hours over 2 days if anyone needs help replacing theirs PM me and I'll save you a bunch of aggravation.

Are you changing your fluid out from time to time to help keep it clean?

Ranger from another forum had made an easy procedure which helps the system last.

You just suck the fluid out of the reservoir and fill it with clean fluid. (Also clean the cap and seal)

Fill and cycle the clutch pedal around 30 times.

If still dirty ( Which if you have not done this, it will be) repeat for as many times as needed for the fluid to be clean.

Do it like once a year and it helps prevent failure to the slave and master cyclinder.

It's surprising how dirty it gets.
