Having somebody who was very familiarised and specialised in my type of vehicle was very beneficial as Jan was able to complete the work in record time.
Overall I could not ask for a better service from a mechanic. The quality and efficiency of his work in my belief could not be equalled. Having the work completed on my driveway without the normal disruption of getting the vehicle to a garage was also a great benefit and convenience.
I would personally recommend Jan to anyone seeking their future car service or repairs. I would give Jan 5***** 11/10”

Frequently asked questions about clutch slave cylinder replacement & repairs in Bristol
Read our answers to questions about clutch slave cylinder replacement costs, symptoms and more.
What does a clutch slave cylinder replacement in Bristol involve?
This is a completely different type of repair to the external cylinder type. The mechanic will have to carry out a complete clutch replacement, which may require the vehicle to be taken into the workshop, depending on the size of the engine or the vehicle's location.
For more information on clutch replacement, please refer to https://www.clickmechanic.com/help/articles/283/clutch-replacement
What are the symptoms of a bad slave cylinder?
Usually, clutch slave cylinders do not completely fail, in other words, the pedal doesn’t suddenly lose all resistance and drop to the floor. Generally, the problem will start with having to pump the pedal to change gear or you gradually have to use more of the pedal travel to change gear. This isn’t always 100% true as with any mechanical operation, so it can occur if there is complete failure of the unit.
If you are able to, you can check the level of brake fluid in the reservoir under the bonnet, which will start to drop if there is a leak in the slave cylinder. You may also notice drops of fluid under the car, but this isn’t always the case with an internal concentric slave cylinder.
How long does it take to replace a clutch slave cylinder?
On average a clutch slave cylinder replacement will usually take around 1 hours, but can take anywhere from 1 to 2 hours. The time that the job takes will depend on a range of factors. For example, your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.
How do I know if my master cylinder or slave cylinder is bad?
If you experience an issue with the clutch and are not sure whether it's the master cylinder or slave cylinder then it is advisable to get help from a professional mechanic. They can identify exactly which part is at fault and advise on next steps.
Is a bad clutch slave cylinder an MOT failure?
