Clutch Slave Cylinder

The clutch slave cylinder receives the hydraulic pressure generated by the clutch master cylinder. When the clutch pedal is depressed, the slave cylinder disengages the clutch, which allows smooth gear transition.

Symptoms of a Bad or Failing Clutch Slave Cylinder

  • Clutch may not work properly, or may not work at all
  • Clutch pedal may sink to the floor
  • Gears may be hard to shift
  • Clutch fluid leak or a need to top off the fluid

Clutch Slave Cylinder Related Repair Advice

  • The clutch fluid should be flushed until clean and clear during this replacement
  • On some newer vehicles, the clutch master and slave cylinders, along with the connecting hydraulic line, are combined in a single assembly and not serviced separately
  • Instead of the master/slave hydraulic system, vehicles may use a clutch cable or mechanical linkage
