You will see a white plastic retaining ring where the line connects to the transmission. Do not remove this, but instead push this in evenly toward the transmission while pulling the hydraulic line away from the transmission. One of Ford's "better ideas".

If the slave cylinder wont build up pressure and you've tried bleeding it and the master cylinder and the slave cylinder is good then what would make it not work?

a leak in the pressure line could do it. are you sure the seals in the cylnders are good? Is the slave not holding pressure, or is the master not building pressure? How did you bleed it? it makes a difference. Also, if the master or slave cylinders weren't bench bled before installation, it can take a very long time to bleed all of the air out of the cylinders.

Why wont your manual car go into gear after changing clutch slave cylinder and master cylinder?

Will it go into gear when the engine is off and the vehicle isn't moving? If so, it could be a problem with the pilot bearing or possibly the clutch slave cylinder wasn't installed properly. Check it for air bubbles. you may need to bleed the hydraulic line to the slave cylinder.

No, they break the first time you hit the clutch. They are there to help line up the slave cylinder push rod with the throw out arm.

What is wrong with your clutch system if you just changed the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder and your clutch pedal wont engage the slave cylinder?

If you allowed the master/reservoir to drain empty while the line was disconnected or installed the master dry, you may have to remove the master and bench bleed it first. Always keep the reservoir full during the process.

What is wrong with a 2001 manual Honda civic dx when it wont shift gears?

If when the car is not running, you can put it in gear and the car will hold itself, it is most likely the slave cylinder on the transmission bad. Could be the master also, but the slave is much more likely to go out. Open the bleeder screw on the master and pump the clutch once. If fluid is pushed out, it is almost certainly the slave that is bad.
