HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.

Hello There Everyone!

My project has been sitting for about 5yrs but I have been making slow progress here and there.

I am wondering about that Clutch Master Slave thing. I admit I have never had a hydraulic clutch before. Should I replace it if it has been sitting for a while? I mean I bought the car and started taking it apart right away. Do they go bad? I am not sure if the hose from the part bolted to the firewall is the right kind.

Can anyone help me understand how these parts work together?

Thanks for helping,
Ed

think of it as a braking system, the master cylinder is really no different than your brake master cylinder, and your slave cylinder isnt much different than a caliper. yes master cylinders do fail, but its worth trying before you replace it.

Here's a master cylinder replacement procedure with pictures.

And a slave cylinder replacement procedure with info on bleeding.

In fact, the whole Clark's Garage website is useful: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
