Locate the cylinder on the gearbox bell housing. Clamp the flexible fluid feed hose to the slave cylinder, reasonably close to the cylinder. Disconnect the feed pipe to the cylinder, remove the cylinder's location bolts, and remove cylinder. Reverse process for reinstallation.
Once installed, open up the cylinder's bleed nipple, attach rubber hose (preferably clear type) and feed into a clear bottle. Open the master cylinder's reservoir cap and brim with clean fluid (usually brake fluid DOT 4 will be fine, unless stated otherwise on the cap)
Now it's easier if you have help pumping the clutch pedal as you will have to depress the pedal and clamp the bleed nipple, raise the pedal. Depress the pedal and open the nipple. Close the nipple and release the pedal. Keep repeating this procedure whilst continually topping up the reservoir and until the fluid coming out of the bleed nipple is clean and free from any air bubbles.
On the final depression of the pedal, lock the bleed nipple, release the pedal and then pump it a few times and judge the feel and travel of the pedal.
If the pedal is still only close to the floor when operating the clutch, then you likely still have some air in the system and should repeat the above steps.
If adequate pressure is available and the clutch operates well, then your job is done.


Be aware that brake fluid eats into paint and many types of plastics over time, so once you are done, then rinse any areas with water only, which came into contact with any spilled fluid.


Tada! You've finished! Road test the vehicle to be sure of a good successful job. Recheck the fluid level after a few hours driving to make sure you haven't any leaks and aren't loosing fluid.

SOURCE: replaced slave cylinder 2004 ford ranger 4x4 still no pedal

I had the same problem with my 1995 1500 p.u.. Assuming your clutch slave cylinder is the concentric style. If not disregard. I hate that set up. what the hell was wrong with the old outside of the bell housing slave/ mechanical style fork and throw out bearing bla bla? Its because ford as well of the rest of the lovely auto makers decided long ago to make them as hard as hell to repair on you own. Ive been told theres a spsecial tool just for this bleeding task. Pobably. They make those tools to sell to us so they can further profit from us poor suckers.Also I wonder on your model if its concentric, does it have the difficult sized bleeder valve as mine did? or have they gotten a little more user friendly? doubt it. In my case as this style is a closed system I followed the bleeding intructions to a tee. That did get alot more clutch action for me, after 15 attempts.However I do believe the problem after looking and further inspection under the dash? look up under the dash and inspect your pedal rack and frame. I found mine was cracked and the cause of poor aliegnment. check for that rite away. I located another rack but before I got around to replacing it, the tranny blew, and the trucks sitting on my dads property. Its still a danmed good truck and one of these days I will get on it again. Anyway up untill the tranny blew I was never able to get more than half the distance from the pedal and besides the rack problem I would love to know the bleeding anser, that is if Im off target. Going to be up against it again when I replace that transmission. Hope this helps a little. Food for thought maybe? If you find out something more helpful post it so I will know too.

SOURCE: leaking clutch fluid Where is the slave cylinder"..I have been told to look at the slave cylinder because I do not see fluid under the car.

Slave cylinder should be on the left side of the bellhousing (follow the line from the clutch master if necessary) If you don't see fluid but you have lost some, also check where the rod from the pedal goes through the firewall to the master...they often leak there and will not drip on the ground.

Ford transit 52 plate clutch pedal goes soft then csnt change gear then pump pedal pedal goes back to normal drive for a short while then clutch pedal goes soft again and just repeats as above just bought...


The clutch hydraulic system has a problem-either the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder on the bell housing may be at fault.

If the brake fluid is low in the clutch master cylinder reservoir, there may be a leak to the outside. Refill and check for leaks while someone pumps the clutch pedal. Check around the clutch master cylinder (also under the dash- if wet there around the top of the clutch pedal or if wet on the carpet below the pedal, the master cylinder is leaking.) Check the single line from the clutch master to the bell housing where the slave cylinder is. If no leaks found, likely the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder has failed internally.

Is it safe: there won't be any further damage caused by running it, but if shifting gets harder and harder to do, that may cause a driveability problem.

Clutch pedal is soft and have to pump pedal for gear change


I see someone has already mentioned the Master Cylinder but you should also check the slave cylinder for leakage. They are usually mounted lower and are more prone to contamination.

I have a 1996 f150 4x4 5 speed v 4.9 engine that the clutch mastercylinder has to be pumped up before you can put vehicle in gear. It has a new clutch mastercylinder should I change out the slave cylinder?


did you bleed the slave cylinder? On the slave cylinder there should be a bleeder screw just like a brake caliper, perform the bleed procedure just like a brake, pump clutch and open slave bleeder, repeat untill all air is no longer noticed. keep master filled with fluid and top off when completed

I THINK ALL OF THE FORDS HAVE INTERNAL SLAVE CYLINDERS.WHERE I WORK (PROVEN FORCE/CLUTCH AND U-JOINT) WE USUALLY SUGGEST CHANGING WHEN YOU DO THE CLUTCH,BECAUSE IT IS INTERNAL.THEY TEND TO FAIL A LOT IN COLDER WEATHER ALSO

Having problems with the clutch in my 1998 Ford Ranger. There is no freeplay, and it is very difficult to shift. Do I need to adjust the clutch? If so, how do I adjust it?


The clutch is not adjustable,it is a fluid clutch.It has to be a leak,or the slave cylinder,and,or, the master cylinder are bad,It does not have to be leaking to be bad,but it is one of the two.Rate please,thank you.

2001 Ford ranger edge. The gears won't change.


The trans will need to come out. While your at it, just replace the clutch assembly, rear main oil seal, resurface the flywheel, and the clutch master cyl. Its not really a job you should do, find a repair shop to handle it.

Clutch has no pressure, but no leaks.


That would be a pressure plate problem.
