Want to learn more about Clutch Slave Cylinder replacements in Bristol?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does a clutch slave cylinder do?

The clutch slave cylinder receives the hydraulic pressure created by the clutch master cylinder when you press down on the clutch pedal. It then releases the clutch from the flywheel allowing you to change gear.

What does a clutch slave cylinder replacement 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.

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.
