Removing and replacing is straight forward mechanic work.Here is a gotcha that very few manuals will tell you,but years of experience will teach you.Go ahead and install the clutch slave cylinder on the bellhousing of the trans.The clutch master cylinder needs to be "bench bled" so that as much air as possible is gone from the master cylinder before installed on the vehicle.This requires a helper.Take master cyl. to a bench and set it down while holding the assembly in your hands.Fill the reeservoir with brake fluid.I wear latex or nitrile gloves while i work to keep my hands clean.This helps in sealing off the output fluid port during this procedure.Have your assistant take a phillips head screwdriver and push the piston in,on the master cyl and hold it in the depressed position.Some fluid and air will shoot out the output port.Now take your latex glove clad finger,and press it firmly over the fluid output hole.Now release the screwdriver.Remove finger from hole,and stroke the piston in with the screwdriver and hold it at it's depressed position.Place finger over the hole.Add fluid to the reservoir.Keep repeating until only solid fluid exits the output hole.This is bench bleeding.Now install into vehicle being careful to not get brake fluid on the paint.After installing,on the clutch master cylinder rod...there is a jam nut,either 12 mm or 14 mm.Loosen this nut and back it off.Now,the threaded rod can be spun in,or out,making the rod shorter or longer.this is how you adjust the clutch pedal engagement point,after installation.Back to the clutch master and slave,they obviously need to be bled after installation,with the bleeder valve down on the slave cylinder.Good luck.

To replace the clutch master, you must remove the under hood fuse box and air filter housing assm, then remove the hydraulic line that goes into the inlet port of the clutch master, then inside the car, remove the hush panel/knee bolster panel from under the steering column, and loosen the boilts that retain the brake pedal to the firewall, then remove the two 10mm bolts that secure the clutch master to the brake pedal assm. Reverse procedure ti install, then fill the brake master cylinder with clean fluid, loosen the bleeder screw at the top of the trans, and bleed the clutch as you would the regular brake system, but never pump the pedal, tighten screw, with foot off of clutch pedal open screw and press pedal to floor, then tighten screw before you release pedal, then release pedal loosen screw, etc. until no more air comes out, it may take quite a few times to fully bleed the system.

Drain or bleed? The bleeder nipple is on the slave cylinder. Fill master cylinder,leave the cap loose, open the bleed nipple at the slave cylinder,and let gravity do the rest. whe vo more aie bibbles come out and it drips steady. Close the bleeder, top of the master cylinder and you are done.
