Clutch Slave Cylinder Issue

(1990 Volvo 740)
in Matthews, NC on September 09, 2009
The rubber boot at the end of the push rod on my 8 month old clutch slave cylinder is squeezing into the hole (about halfway) on the clutch fork/arm . . . will it possibly go all the way through or does it tighten itself in that position? Don't want to chance losing my clutch!
How do you tell if the clutch slave cylinder itself is bad?

I'm a little unclear on what you're describing. Is there a problem with the clutch arm? There is an indentation on the arm, and this is where the push rod engages the arm. Is that what you mean by "squeezing into the hole"?

best way to check a clutch slave cylinder is to see if it leaks. Does you clutch still operate correctly? it could be that your fork arm is wearing through.
