At least the slave cylinder. The clutch master cylinder can be replaced at any time.
bleed your clutch..that may be the problem
Master Brake cylinder replaced and lines bled-how long?
after the clutch master cylinder has been replaced.
Whenever you are having a problem with the clutch disengaging the engine from the transmission it is advisable to bleed the clutch slave cylinder. If the clutch can't be operated by bleeding the slave cylinder then the clutch master cylinder is gone and should be replaced.
The Slave Cylinder and the Master Cylinder control totally different systems. The Slave has to do with the clutch, and the Master has to do with the brakes. They have nothing in common.
I'm having mine replaced today and it's costing £165.
If you did not bench bleed the master, you need to do that.
A master cylinder should be replaced when it can no longer provide the pressure needed for the brakes to operate. You can tell it is failing when the pedal becomes soft.
The clutch master cylinder on a Chevy S10 is replaced by disconnecting the metal lines, unscrewing the retaining bolts, and removing it from the housing. A new master cylinder can then be put into place and reattached.
Nope, not unless when removing master cylinder somehow the slave cylinder got bumped a bit too hard. Slave cylinder is the smaller one that the clutch pedal uses to push in and out the throwout bearing allowing for manual shifting...
It means your master cylinder needs to be replaced or rebuilt. The seals inside the cylinder can go bad and cause this to happen.
