Default Help needed, mk1 mx5 clutch engagement

Hello, bit of an emergency here. Currently in Germany with a mk1 eunos (we're from the UK, visiting the nurburgring). The clutch is engaging at the floor, and is intermittently failing to disengage even with your foot right into the firewall. I've had a slave cylinder go before and was convinced this was the issue. Took it to a garage who speak no English and they have replaced both the slave and the master cylinder.

The clutch is still broken. We have some tools with us and we're going to try bleeding it ourselves but I can't see that a garage could fail to bleed it properly. Failing that we're giving up and going home, having only done a lap each, which is a bit of a bummer.

Any thoughts for stuff to check that's a relatively simple fix? We're handy enough to bodge something if we have to.

You might want to post on a Miata forum which is the U.S. name for the MX5

Anywho it does sound like either the slave isnt extending all the way or the master isnt pushing enough fluid. Bleed the whole thing again. If bleeding doesnt help check that the parts they exchanged are the correct ones. If none of that helps sorry but you'll need to drop the tranny to check the clutch.
