Has the master cylinder already been changed?

I have a similar issue, new master, air bled, but still have to pump before a journey after a day parked. My next step would be a new slave (already bought) but it's inside the bell housing so normally swapped with a new clutch plate.

Hi my clutch is OK when it's parked up its only when I go on a long journey if I park up when I get were I'm going let it cool down & then pump the pedll up & down a few times I can keep going would you say it might need bleeding thanks

I tried it because it's a cheap option, made no difference and mechanics said there were no air bubbles.
My thinking is if I can live with it then do nothing.
What else could I do? Change fluid or do a pre-emptive cutch plate change or dismantle the housing to verify no clutch wear while changing the slave.

My first thought is this....the clutch and brakes share the same master cylinder. When the car is parked there's pressure, when you go for a long drive you lose pressure. What are the chances that using the brakes is somehow causing the clutch circuit to lose pressure?

Obvious thing to do is check the fluid level in the brake reservoir to make sure it's correct. If you go on a long drive, check the level before you leave and when the clutch stops working and see if the level has changed.

old, and if possible dismantling, and why it affects the pedal pressure.
How many kms on the original clutch?

Does your clutch kit include the slave cylinder?
