Hey you lot , any help on hot to get this done my self, there is no chance of me selecting gears a the pedal is at floor bottom. And wont go into gears if the car is idling . I have see that the slave is wet around the rubber. So I know it need replacing, shall I get the masters and slave changed together, but it sure how to just yet . Thanks

is there fluid in the car , around the top of the clutch pedal area ?

 

if not , just change the slave , the master cyl can be a git to do anyway

 

you used to be able to buy the slave cyl recon kit , which may work out even cheaper , if the bore is in good condition

the above is for verto slave cyl - I think that is correct for MPI - but check with others first

the hardest bit will be moving the brake master cyl out the way
 

I usually leave it connected , undo the 2 mounting nuts , move it over to wing , tie it there with a bit of string , make sure fluid don't spill out of cap

 

then you should be able to get to the slave

 

slacken flexi pipe connection , then undo 2 slave mounting bolts , then undo flexi & fluid will leak out & pull bar out of slave

 

if the above bolts are seized , you can take the plate underneath the slave off - they are usually rusty (keep hold of spacer underneath)

 

refitting is the reverse of above

 

(may be a few pipes / loom to move about as well)
