Hi if the sidekick is the same as the uk vitara then they don't have a slave cylinder just a clutch cable with a nut near the end to adjust it. If its like a grand vitara they have got a slave cylinder, just crack the bleed nipple off put one end of a small pipe on the end of the nipple and drop the other end in a bottle that is roughly half full of break and clutch fluid, ask someone to pump the clutch pedal until no more air bubbles are coming out then tighten the bleed nipple back up. make sure to keep a check on brake fluid levels while doing this.

Does it have a clutch slave cylinder? if so where & how do you bleed it

check the reservoir for fluid, located under the bonnet on the fire wall, the slave cylinder is located on the bell housing just in front of the gear box, some times the cylinder will bleed it self if you loosen the bleeder *****, if not top up with brake fluid, have a helper pump the clutch a few times and hold it down , loosen the bleeder ***** , fluid and air should escape, tighten the bleeder ***** and repeat till no more air is expelled , top up with fluid.

How do you adjust a clutch on a 1998 suzuki sidekick sport. It has a hydraulic clutch.

A lot of fluid clutches cannot be adjusted. Any that can be adjusted is with slave cylinder The small round bar from the slave cylinder to the plate from the bell housing which holds the trust bearing. Check it you will easily see the adjuster on it if it has one. If your clutch is'nt badly worn and it cannot be adjusted then try bleeding the slave cylinder it may be air. If it is hard to put into gear and the car moves off when you lift your foot up 2 to 3 inches then it needs adjusting if not then the clutch is worn and adjustment won't help. Cheer's

I changed the clutch master cylinder and the clutch slave cylinder on my 97 sidekick and I still have no pedal

did you bleed the air out of the slave cylinder. Do this by having a buddy sit in the car pump this pedal a couple of time and then hold it to the floor then open the bleeder valve on the slave cylinder. repeat until just fluid comes of or the bleeder valve. refill slave to proper level with recommend brake fluid. hope this helps.

Where is the slave cylinder located on my 1997 sidekick. how do you change it.

Assuming you're talking about a clutch slave cylinder - it's on or near the transmission. I don't know about Sidekicks in particular, but the slave cylinder operates a component (the clutch) in the trans, so it's always on/in/close.
