Slave cylinder disconnect

I have a 1988 Ford Bronco 11(manual transmission) which I cannot get the slave cylinder disconnect line off.I'm trying to get the disconnect tool on it,not sure were to put it.I thought it would go somewhere between the line and plastic sleeving but there is no space to even insert the tool.I don't know if the plastic sleeving is jammed up with the metal housing of the disconnect.You can see about 3/16" before the metal housing.Don't Know if I'm going at this all wrong or what,never did one before.Please help ,Jeff

Insert the tool in front off the plastic sleeve they are prone to be stuck. this is very common . as a rule off thumd i replace the master and the slave when iam doing the clutch any way and at times i have had to replace the line because it would not come of . you can disconnect the line at the master by removing the roll pin that holds the line

1991 Ford ranger 4 wheel drive slave cylinder how to change it

Transmission removal will be required for replacement of the slave cylinder as well as a special tool needed to disconnect the hydraulic line from the cylinder. You can anticipate it being a 6-7 hour job having the correct tools on hand

not necessary to remove the hose just the whole cylinder off the bell housing and place it aside. IT saves having to bleed the system after putting the gearbox back

1996 Bronco manual transmission hard to shift

You have a m5 (mazda 5 spd) transmission. Same thing that is in my 96 f150 4x4.

Ford had a problem with the slave cyclinders on thoes trannys. The slave is mounted inside the bellhousing and wraps aroung the input shaft, eliminating the need for a fork.

I am willing to bet my next paycheck that you have brakefluid inside the bellhousing.

Ford has a revision on that slave cylinder. because there is no dust boot on it, clutch material gets to the seal and tears it up, and because of the heat the seal will fail.

Replace your clutch, Flywheel (will have brake fluid burned into it), Slave cylinder, and possibly the line going to the slave (sometimes the realease locks up).

Make sure you get the slave from FORD, it is around $100.00, about 2x as much as anyone else but well worth it. I have not found anyone but ford make it with the boot and upgraded seal. If you get one from a parts store it will only last about 3 months. I tried, first one went out in 3 months, had it warrentied, then second only lasted 2.5 months. I finnaly brokedown and paid the extra for a FORD and it at 11 months it is still going strong.----------------------------------------------------

Transmission fluid leaking back, 1988 Ford Bronco

your output seal on the tranny or input seal on your transfer case is bad. you have to pull your transfer case to tell. this is a pretty straight forward job. block wheels. put transfer case in neutral. drop front and rear drive lines.diconnect transfer case shift linkage. there is a short commponent connecting the trans to the transfer case. the bolt on either end face each other. remove the bolts to the transmission. the transfer case is heavier than it looks, i suggest getting help. pull back on the transfer case until it will drop down. it will pull out a bit because of the trans output shaft. replace what will probibly turn out to be the tranny output shaft seal and reassemble in reverse order.
