SOURCE: how to fit a clutch master cylinder for c220 cdi

Remove the three 13mm nuts holding the pedal bracket to the bulkhead, this will give you more room to work but just as it's free to move about a bit. Undo the two 10mm nuts holding the cylinder to the pedal assy and the pipe union at the bottom of the cylinder. Pry off the clutch hose at the fluid reservoir. Release the circlip on the end of the cylinder rod on the pedal.
When you put the new one in feed the hose through first with a piece of wire so you can locate it at the fluid reservoir, loosley connect the union at the bottom of the cly, and pop the end of the cyl rod into place and replace the circlip. now try to relocate the long bolts into the cylinder body, it's a fiddle but can be done. Use a 3/8 drive to undo and re-do the 10 mm nuts as a smaller one seems better but doesn't have the reach. The rest is just common sense.

SOURCE: fitted new clutch and slave cylinder in 2.5 v6

crawl up under the dashboard & look where the clutch pedal rod goes through the firewall. look for traces of brake fluid at the rubber boot of the rod. a clutch master cylinder normally will leak to the inside of the vehicle & down the firewall when it fails. Replace as required & bleed clutch system using the bleeder valve that should be on the slave asy.

Just because the master is new does not mean it isn't faulty. If you are certain you have bleed all the air from the system, I suspect you got a bad master.

No clutch pedal after fitting new clutch pugeout 407


you have an air bubble in the system.. keep bleeding it and it should return. if the clutch master cylinder is like a ford then you actually have to remove it to get the air out by holding the master at the right angel for the air to be completely removed....

Bought new clutch new slave new master still no pressure on pedal how do you bleed the clutch


Hydraulic clutch systems are renown for having airlocks in them once the fluid has drained out.
1.With the Master cylinder full have an assistant pump the clutch pedal acouple of times and keep it on the floor.
2. Release the bleed nipple on the slave cylinder to allow the air out and then tighten.
3. Assistant then allows pedal to come up.They may need to pull back pedal if it does not return by itself.
4.Repeat from #1 until no nore bubbles are seen coming out of the slave cylinder bleed nipple.
If you have a length of suitable size plastic tube that fits neatly over the the slave cylinder bleed nipple , the bubbles will be seen more clearly.
It could thae 8 to 10 pump sequences to clear the air lock. If the clutch still feels spongy, repeat the sequence after a couple of days driving.

Peressure bleed a cluch pt 2003


Try a manual bleed first, as it may achieve the same result without the hassle of pressure bleeding.
Fill the master cylinder resevoir, keep it topped up while cracking open the slave delivery line- wait for a steady dribble of fluid to come through - a couple of gentle pumps of the master cylinder will help the process.
Then move to the slave cylinder bleed nipple - crack it open and repeat the process above.
Once you get a bit of pedal pressure back, it's fairly straightforward to complete the bleed process.
