On my 03 its located on the driverside of the transmission facing the back of the jeep. there is a tube coming of of it that will lead to the engine bay where the master cylinder is located. Heres a rough picture, you can see the front diff off to the left for some reference. Oh by the way, thats whats left of my clutch after removing the slave cylinder

That is correct, have you checked your fluid?

94 and up is external, before that it is internal. just take a good look at your bellhousing. if there is no cylinder attached, just a line going in, then its internal.

Well my clutch pedal just sinks to the floor and it doesnt engage and to my knowledge most of the time that would be the slave cylinder. Is their any way I could check to besure before dropping the transmission?

You might try bleeding the clutch system and see if that helps, and to also see if you have a leak.

It is also possible to switch from the internal to external. I forgot all the details, but a buddy of mine did it to his 87 CJ and said if I kept some of my parts I could do it to my 93 YJ.

you can change to an external slave.

you would need a 94+ bellhousing, the slave, the throwout assembly, and time to swap it all over. i did it to my 93 2 years ago, i got my parts from a cherokee i got for the trans and tail cone then sold the rest for what i paid for it.

i didnt put specifics up as i cant remember them buts it fairly straight forward once its out and on the ground.

my 90 is inside the bellhousing if you buy a master cluch kit for 150 it comes with one .. which is a way better value then 100 for one by itself. and HA i only put like 4 miles on it then found a 350 4 bolt main with a 350 turbo trans and np205 transfercase and axles from a k5 blazer...what a wast lol

Since you will be dropping the tranny might as well get the master kit. If you put it in yourself........DO NOT play with the new one and pull the plastic straps off the sides, you will be buying a new one.(personal experience )

I have a 93 and discovered my slave cylinder is internal when my clutch pedal was doing same thing you are describing. My clutch master cylinder was the culprit. Try this route first...its a much easier fix. Look on your fire wall on the driver side (both inside and out). If you see any fluid or what looks like fluid has leaked it is probably your clutch master cylinder. It was easy fix on mine....still dreading the day the slave goes out.

By the time your slave cylinder wears out, it's probably near time for a new clutch anyway. So I don't worry about the fact I have an internal slave cylinder. Just replace the slave and the clutch together and drive on!

So it could just be my master cylinder that has gone bad? I though the slave cytlinder would always go first.

Master on my '91 went. Clutch pedal had no resistance. Could pump it a couple times and it would work. Lasted a week like that till I had to drive home with out a clutch. $75 bucks and about 30 minutes work.

Have you checked for leakage on the firewall, both in the engine bay behind the clutch master cylinder and inside the cabin by the pedals?
