|UberJeep||I just replaced mine. Best advice I heard and it's true is that if you replace one, the other will follow. So I bought mine as a complete assembly (master cylinder and slave cylinder already connected). I made one mistake. I bought mine from a on-line company that I have used for many years for the multitude of vehicles I own. JCW. I have to return it because the hydraulic line coming out of master Cylinder is steel braided and hits firewall, no swivel joint. Also, I had to switch the firewall mounts because the new does not even come close. Totally incorrect. I had to improvise. The company now outsources its customer service to Phillipines and trying to tell some what the problem is is next to impossible, sorry I was loyal to JCW but no longer. Anyway, replace as a unit and do both at same time, that's my advice. And make sure the replacement is EXACTLY as the stock one or you'll be switching parts.|

|sands08||I'm having an issue with my slave cylinder. I just replaced my clutch and reinstalled everything, my master and slave where fine so there was no need for bleeding the system. When I was ready to try the new clutch I pushed the pedal down and my slave popped apart like there was too much travel. Has anyone had this problem? Is there an internal adjustment?|

|harleydragon||if you do it all then you shouldn't have to worry about it for a while..my wife's slave went out so we replaced it,the master,clutch and pressure plate all at once..it works great and she is happy|

|jokerchief462||Hell yes ram it up their billing department. That kind of incompotence is what makes shade tree mechanics. I am tired of those who profess to know what they are doing charging $100/hr for bull%$%$## and that is a fact. I have seen more incompotence at the oil change places than I can afford. Those who do this bring a bad name to those who really are professional and want to do a good job always and then there are those who go the trouble to get certifications only to be driven down by those who steal from everyone else. It gets old. Challenge at all costs until you are satisfied. My .02|

|CMBT DOC||I just had my clutch replaced on my 2009 4 door rubicon. Clutch pedal went dead, fluid leaking from tranny. Took it back to dealership, they said slave cylinder is what was leaking.....$500 to replace. Called me back 2 days later, master cylinder was sucking not pushing.....$550 for that. Need advice, could or should these have been replaced or affected during the clutch replacement? I have been trying to get an idea as to where these parts are located, and it looks like the slave is in the trans housing. When I got the jeep back after the clutch replace pedal felt like I was pushing air, no grab could be felt, but it worked well. Dealership said it was cause the plate was new and flywheel was machined. I call BS. Should I fight with the dealership that they caused this after a $1200 clutch replace less then 5 months ago?|

I just got the part today, any suggestion on the install procedure?
I read this clutch master cylinder assembly install going haywire - JeepForum.com
and it states
1. remove the slave, and then the master.
2. install the slave then the master
3. leave the plastic part on the slave
4. pump clutch 1 time and done??
does anyone have a link on a write up for this or a PDF on a manual?
I found several write ups on just the master or just the slave but none on the whole assembly install? thanks..

|Ol' Red||I have heard if you do one do the other one too while you are at it. People say if you do just the master then the slave will likely go out soon. Also everyone says to buy the pre-bled kit.|

|90yjHMG||if money isnt a problem then buy the kit and save you the time with bleeding. I havent had this problem but i am swaping out the tranny in a 90 4.2 and i changer it to the external slave and saved myself a lot of time.|

Clutch master and slave cylinder
So My clutch master cylinder is shot (leaks at the clutch pedal by the fire wall) and on a 2.5l 1995 jy the Slave is external, and you can buy the complete kit for around $160.00 (slave and master with tube) or i can buy just a MC (only $66) and skip the slave since the slave is fine. if i buy the whole kit it is pre bleed so i wont even have to bleed it, if I buy just the master I will have to bleed it and risk the o ring on the slave not holding and could eventually having a leak in the slave 6-9 month down the road, but I will save the money now?/ what should i do??
