I got under the car today to do an oil change and noticed that there was oil or more likely clutch fluid on the exhaust.

I dropped the inspection cover to see what’s going on fearing a failed rear seal or something.

I’m purposely leaving my thoughts out of this particular post. I’m interested in the groups comments first.

NOTE: clutch master often needs topping up but has never run dry or caused poor clutch operation.

"dropped the inspection cover?" What cover?
Apart from the M/c level dropping slightly over time due to clutch wear, it shouldn't need regular topping up, so something is wrong.
If it was the M/c you would have a puddle in the foot well. Most likely flexible or slave.
