Very simple job, but if the slave is dead, the master and certainly the 
hose may need replacement as well. The other caveat is that not until 
after you buy the car and fix the clutch hydraulics will you have any 
indication of the clutch condition itself, and you have to pull the 
engine to replace the clutch disc or throwout bearing. It might be 
worthwhile to pay the guy to replace the slave cylinder just so you can 
test drive the car, unless he has some receipts to indicate the 
age/mileage on the clutch.
