REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1 and 2
- Raise the vehicle and support it safely.
- Disconnect the hydraulic line from the master cylinder.
- Remove the slave cylinder retaining nuts at the bellhousing and remove the slave cylinder.
- Cover all hydraulic lines to prevent dirt and moisture from entering the system.
- Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Tighten the slave cylinder-to-bellhousing nuts to 10-14 ft. lbs. (14-20 Nm). Refill the master cylinder reservoir with new DOT 3 brake fluid and bleed the system of air.
BLEEDING THE HYDRAULIC CLUTCH SYSTEM
- Fill the clutch master cylinder with new DOT 3 brake fluid. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
- Remove the slave cylinder retaining bolts. Hold the cylinder about 45º with the bleeder at the highest point.
- Fully depress the clutch pedal and open the bleeder screw. Repeat until all air is expelled from the system, usually after 4 or 5 times. Be sure to close the bleeder screw before releasing the pedal to prevent air from being sucked into the system.
- Be sure that the fluid level remains full in the clutch master cylinder throughout the bleeding procedure.
