Replacing hose from clutch master to slave

Postby jduarte » Sat Dec 19, 2009 8:46 pm

Any tips? I'll be taking the coolant res out to get some room. I'm sure this is going to suck for the most part, just lookin for some tips/guidance. Engine is early 12v vr6. TIA

It won't be hard but I can't help but think there is a bleed procedure when you are nearly done but for the life of me I can't remember it so find it!

I found that on the tex and I've also been considering buying a power bleeder or seeing if a shop might have one for rent/borrow. I'm just unsure of how the new hose is going to go on. It will probabaly help when I actually get the part...

It's not too bad... I would suggest getting the flare-nut wrench of the right size though. That will help not strip the nut on the line if it's being stubborn. I think you'll probably end up moving the battery out of the way too to see the clutch slave.

You might also be able to pull the clutch slave out of the transmission w/ just two bolts w/ the line still attached and do it up in the air.

Like in this pic :

The clutch slave is tied up next to the coolant bottle... and is still attached, so I think I was able to do it :thumb:

Thanks, that helps quite a bit. There's no chance you remember the size of the flare nut wrench I'm assuming?

I'm gonna guess 11mm, but i'm totally pulling that out of my butt. :) Check it with your new line using an open-ended wrench.
