Vauxhall Vectra brake/clutch fluid loss

2001 Vauxhall Vectra Problem

Recently I have had to keep topping up the brake reservoir on a weekly basis, have checked the reservoir, brake lines and brake pads, discs and callipers but see no sign of leaks.
Been told the clutch master or slave cylinder could be at fault but have no idea how to find out.

Suggested Solution

Check inside car at top of clutch pedal for signs of master cyl leaking fluid .If it's the slave cyl .that's leaking , that is inside gear box / clutch housing .
