WARNING
The clutch hydraulic system uses brake fluid to control hydraulic operation. Never reuse brake fluid. Any brake fluid that is removed from the system should be discarded. Also, do not allow any brake fluid to come in contact with a painted surface; it will damage the paint.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2.  
  3. Remove the bolt securing the hydraulic line to the release cylinder.
    NOTE
    To prevent loss of brake fluid during clutch master cylinder removal, the disconnected hydraulic fluid transfer hose must be plugged or directed into suitable container.
