RSX Type S - blew clutch master cylinder

Hey guys,

the other day I was just driving and hit a red light. The moment it turned green I stepped on the clutch and I heard a big pop and my clutch then turned weightless. Checked my CMC and it seems to be missing a bolt (attached a pic). Anyways I searched some stuff up on google and found some info that apparently the triangular design for the CMC is prone to failure, especially if you're running an aftermarket clutch (which I am). Would replacing the bolt and bleeding it out fix it, or is the whole CMC toast?

are the threads stripped out ? or did the firewall give out , can you use a bolt with a lock nut and washers to re-secure the CMC?

Don't bother thinking about fixing the cmc you have now.
Buy the em2 cmc, it's an upgrade.
