Yes; But it is not as big; Under your dash attached to the clutch pedal is a control rod going through the firewall. Check the area in which it goes through, and find that same area on the engine side he firewall. It's close to the M/Cyl, but smaller and attached to the firewall as well.

That one uses the fluid from the M/cyl, but it should have a hose/line coming out of the res to the clutch master.

the line frome the slave cyl runs up behind the brake booster and i cant tell where it goes from a matter of fact you cant really see the line,only feel it behind the if there is a clutch master cylinder god only knows where it imaging the brake master controls that as well

I'm looking at a picture of one and that one could mount under dash. Control rod goes straight into a round plastic housing. If they put it under dash and it leaks, Wow what a mess.
