Slave cylinder

Ok, so i've been searching for about 2 hours now and i'm frustrated. I just bought a 95 GST and needs the slave cylinder replaced. In fearing of messing this up already i'm hesitent to jump in and do it.

Is there a How-To on replacing the slave cylinder? if there is one, sorry i couldn't find it.

any help is much appreciated!

Re: Slave cylinder

It's real easy. Remove 2 12mm bolts, drop it down, remove the line from the old slave, reconnect the line to the new slave, rebolt back into place, bleed the system. Shouldn't take you more than 1/2 hour.

Re: Slave cylinder

If your car was like mine, the line and the slave will be rusted together. So just get a stainless steel replacement line too.

Re: Slave cylinder

Yes you will have to get under the car. It's in front on the tranny.
