Clutch Slave Cylinder – Repair & Replacement

What does the clutch slave cylinder do?

The clutch slave cylinder is part of the transmission / gearbox system in manual vehicles. It works with the master cylinder to disengage the clutch when the clutch pedal is pressed down.

When the clutch pedal is pressed, the slave cylinder receives hydraulic pressure from the clutch master cylinder, causing it to extend a clutch slave cylinder piston and rod. This rod pushes against a clutch lever which disengages the clutch. This process allows the driver to safely and smoothly engage first gear or reverse and allow you to easily switch gears while driving.

 

What causes problems in the clutch slave cylinder?

Eventually, the clutch slave cylinder can become worn. Over time, the slave cylinder’s rubber seals can become loose, cracked or damaged. This can cause leaking of brake fluid and reduced clutch slave cylinder functionality.

 

Symptoms of a failing clutch slave cylinder:

Usually, a failing clutch slave cylinder will produce some of the following symptoms:

Gears not changing correctly – A failing slave cylinder will affect the way your vehicle changes gears. The clutch may feel different or not work at all (in more severe cases).

Brake fluid leaking – The clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder contain brake fluid. If the seals become loose in the clutch slave cylinder, brake fluid leaks may appear from beneath your car.

Clutch pedal less responsive – If your clutch pedal feels less responsive, sinks to the floor or requires less pressure, your slave cylinder may be due for replacement.
