    contaminated clutch???

    Hello everyone, my slave cylinder recently called it quits. So I took it to a shop and I decided while these guys have the tranny down I should replace the clutch/flywheel/master,pilot,rear main etc(the car has 72000 miles). Once I got the car back it was driving and shifting great, the problem arose when I got home from the shop and looked under the car...it was leaking oil...lots...I'm sure it's from the rear main seal they replaced. My question is that since I put approx 80 miles on the new clutch, is there a chance of it being contaminated with the oil from the rear main leak. Seeing on how it is there fault for installing a faulty seal, should they install a new clutch or can the existing one be cleaned??? I just want to be armed with info before I approach these guys in case they try to pull a "fast one"! Thanks in advance...

    Good news, I got the car back again from the shop. It turns out it was the rear main seal as I suspected, they replaced it with a new one and mentioned that my clutch did not get contaminated...
