Clutch Problems - Introduction
Does your clutch feel very low?
The most common cause of this can be either the clutch pedal has a worn pin hole, or the master and/or slave have worn seals. The worn seals are allowing air past them which is causing bad pedal pressure.
This DIY section will explain how to remove the clutch pedal and how to rebuild the clutch master cylinder. I do not cover the procedure of removing the entire clutch master.
The procedure is very similar to this procedure, except instead of pulling apart the master to rebuild it, you just undue the 2 bolts and remove the clutch line from the master. It will come out somewhat easy after that.
In almost every case, a rebuild kit will suffice for fixing a leaking clutch master.
I bought the clutch master rebuild kit from SAS website for $12.
A new pedal costs only $39.
The knee bolster will have to be removed to do this task.
