As slave cylinders fail on a regular basis, I would find it difficult to believe that the gear box has to be interfered with to replace /repair the cylinder .IT may prove difficult to get to but a workshop manual would describe how to remove the cylinder

SOURCE: Brake Pedal goes to the floor in my 1990 Chevy C1500 Scottsdale

do you have a self bleeder kit? first off, you have to bleed the master cyl back into its self and the combination valve before you go to the wheels. when you do that, I think you will find that you have air in the lines. disconnect both brake lines from the master cyl and put the bleeder kit fittings on the master cyl, then put the rubber tubing with the kit on the fittings and submerge it in the brake reservoir. make sure its full. then pump the pedal until you get a hard pedal. if that is the case, reconnect the lines to the master, then have an assistant pump up the brake pedal with the engine off, and bleed the combination valve which should be connected to the master by steel tubing. pump it up, then hold it down, and crack the fittings loose, one at a time until the pedal goes about half way down, but do not release the brake pedal until the line is tight again, otherwise you will **** air in the lines. after you do all that, go to the farthest caliper or wheel cylynder from the master and bleed that with the same technique,and dont release the pedal until you close the bleeder screw. unless you have a major prob, this will work.

SOURCE: clutch pedal stays 2 the floor on a hydralic

Did you bleed the system? When you replace the the master and/or slave cylinder you have to bleed the system just as you would with brakes. There is a bleed screw on the slave cylinder. Open the bleed screw, have a helper depress and hold the clutch pedal down.Tighten the bleed screw, then release clutch. Repeat this procedure until you have removed all air from the system and the clutch pedal is firm. Keep an eye on the fluid level to avoid sucking air into the system. If you have done this, remember there is a possibility that the master or slave cylinder is defective.

My clutch is broken there is no traction at all and it is stuck to the floor. I can raise the clutch with my foot but cannot change gear when the car is running. Its an 01 VW Golf, is there a cable in this...


The Golf has a hydraulic type clutch, it works off a master cylinder and uses a slave cylinder to engage and disengage. It has a hydraulic line, hose and tubing. Have you checked the fluid level in the master cylinder? Are there any leaks under your car? Often the seals go out on the slave cylinder and the fluid bypasses not allowing any pressure to build, resulting in a soft pedal that goes to the floor. Fill the master cylinder with approved fluid and "pump" the pedal by hand, you should start feeling some pressure build. Then check for leaks. if that is not the problem, you will need to troubleshoot the clutch for pressure plate problems or possible faulty master cylinder. Good luck, i hope this helps.

Either the master clutch cylinder or the clutch slave cylinder is gone.Check the level of the clutch fluid.Try filing it up with hydraulic fluid and pumping the pedal it to see where the leak is from.

Hi, I have a problem with my 1996 vw golf's transmission. The clutch pedal is stays on the floor, and is disengaged. could you give me some direction as to what my problem is?


If you check your fluid in the clutch master cylinder and there is none that means you have a leak. Make sure you add brake fluid. Pull the clutch pedal up by hand and keep pumping it until you have pedal, than top it off with more fluid. This should give you pedal until you fix it unless the leak is so bad you can't get pedal. There is two places that leak. The clutch master cylinder or the clutch slave. You should be able to see where it is leaking after pumping the pedal.

If i dont pump the clutch a few times it is very hard to shift and the pedal goes clear to the floor until i pump it a couple of times


It is likely you have drawn air into the system. Check the clutch reservoir and refill if needed. Use DOT 3 or 4 brake fluid. Bleed the system to restore clutch pedal. Check the clutch slave cylinder for leaks. If leaking, the slave cylinder will need to be replaced and the system bled again. Please let me know if you have questions.

2000 kia sephia the clutch pedal stays at the floor. How to resolve this?


hi, if the pedals on the floor the clutch cable has snapped. will need replacement. please locate the cable and see if it has a part number on the outer sleeve. this may be an easy fix it depends on routing through the firewall. if this is a hydrolic clutch the master cylinder is been leaking or either completely empty of (brake fluid used for the clutch) or the clutch pipe has burst (wo'nt HOLD ANY PRESSURE). the thrust bearing has gone through the diaphram (this is a large fingered spring on the clutch to release drive to the gearbox). the gearbox will need to come out if this is the case i hope i have answered and. gerry

Clutch pedal goes to floor


Its sounds like a bad clutch cylinder or bad slave cylinder or fluid leaking. First check brake fluid level in clutch master , and check for a leak in clutch system. If there are NO leaks, then you either have a bad clutch cylinder or a slave cylinder. Bleed clutch at bleeder screw on slave cylinder and make sure there is pressure from master cylinder. If there is pressure then slave cylinder may be bad replace slave and bleed and that should take care of you problem. If master is bad then replace bleed system ad you should be good. Contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA.
