I have a 1985 325e and the clutch isnt wanting to work. Ok i checked the clutch its self and its like brand new. I have also bought a new slave cylinder so thats not the problem either. I dont know what else it could be and i need the car for school and work. PLEASE HELP ME

+1, there must be air in the system which is causing the clutch to stay engaged. Bleed the slave and you will be fine.
