The hydraulic clutch line reconnects by just pushing it into the connection it came out of on the slave cylinder. You should hear a click when it is in place. The clutch will not depress if the line is not fully inserted into the slave cylinder. There are little metal "fingers" inside of the connection that hold the hose in place. There are 4 groups of three fingers inside the connection. The outside two of the group are up about 1/8" and the middle one is down. A common problem is the fingers that are up get pushed down not allowing it to hold the fitting in place when it is inserted into the slave cylinder. To fix this gently use a small pick to lift the fingers back to their original height. There is also an O ring on the hydraulic line that can be lodged in the fitting. Inspect the fitting to ensure that it has not become stuck which would prohibit the quick connect from latching.

Either the clutch master cylinder or the clutch slave cylinder or the clutch hydraulic lines are leaking.

Several causes are possible, including:Low hydraulic clutch fluid. Check this first since it's a cheap and easy fix.Air in the hydraulic clutch lines.Faulty clutch master or slave cylinder.Worn out, damaged, or faulty clutch.Bent or damaged mechanical clutch linkage.

There is no adjustment on your hydraulic clutch. Try pumping (quick stabs on the pedal with your foot) the clutch a few times and then push your clutch all the way in. If the clutch works better after pumping it, your slave cylinder is leaking and needs to be replaced. If there is no difference, you may need to bleed your hydraulic lines - if you have air in there, the air will compress unlike hydraulic fluid and your slave cylinder won't have the full range of motion.

If you have hydraulic clutch there is air in the lines and needs bled. If not hydraulic it could be a stretched cable, a bent clutch fork, or they have installed a clutch for a different model.
