You have to drop the a-frame from the car, make sure you support the engine from above so all the weight doesn't sit on the one engine mount , also make sure to unbolt the tie rods if you forget its a pain to get the steering shaft back in the rack and pinion, I recommend pulling the transaxle bolts prior to dropping the a-frame just seemed easier to me, it looks like horrible job and I was expected for the worse but I actually was able to drop transmission put in new clutch , slave cylinder with in two days even without having proper tools for the job, this is poor poor poor poor design from gm and makes me want to sell my car but with the work I put into it Id take a pretty big hit by selling, In the 95 grand ams the a frame was 2 piece so you didnt have to loose the whole works seems like were going backwards in time one more thing too add if you feel you have bad syncros in the tranny or the fluid is black id reccomend having it gone through why you have it out ( I recommend this as I had to pull my tranny back out and have it gone through due to bad synrcros so now I have two weekends into this instead of one)

Wont go into gear while driving has to be turned off then it will has new clutch


It sounds like the clutch is not disengaging when depressed. What is the year make and model? It most likely has a hydraulic clutch. Many vehicles have the clutch slave cylinder inside the bell housing of the transmission. This means that the fluid line to the slave cylinder was removed to remove the transmission. If a new slave cylinder was installed when the clutch was replaced (this is a good idea to do when servicing a clutch with a bell housing internal slave cylinder) then the system will need to be bled to remove air from the system and allow the clutch disengagement to function properly.

My friend had clutch replaced 6 mths oago and now clutch is not engaging is there anyway to check hydraulics without removing tranny?


Check clutch fluid level in clutch master cylinder for proper level. You can also watch the slave cylinder move at the transmission where it pushes on the clutch fork. The slave cylinder should move when the clutch pedal is depressed. If the cylinder does not move, suspect a defective master cylinder/slave cylinder/air in system that will require bleeding. If all moves, suspect tranny removal for inspection

How to find 1996 clutch slave cylinder's location


old post but there are 2 post now.
so...
FSM quote:
On 1996-99 vehicles the slave cylinder is called a concentric slave cylinder. It is located on the inside of the transmission bell housing on the input shaft. Removal of the transmission is required to replace it. It directly engages the clutch release bearing.

Do i have to drop the transmission to fix the leak on the slave cylindar


The Clutch Slave Cylinder is leaking on your car. The slave cylinder and the clutch release bearing are all one assembly (see picture below), so you must remove the transmission to replace the clutch Salve cylinder. All late model GM cars are this design.

Where is the 1999 Saturn SL2 slave cylinder located?


on a manual transmission the Clutch Slave Cylinder is located on the drivers side front of the transmission. You can locate it by first finding the clutch master cylinder on the drivers side of the firewall. Then fallow the plastic line to the front of the transmission.

To remove the slave you will first twist it then pull it out of the transmission.

The clutch slave and mater cylinder are replaced as an assembly.

Slave cylinder leaks


Remove the bolts holding the slave cylinder to the transmission. Disconnect the hydraulic hose. Reconnect hydraulic hose to new slave cylinder, and install the slave cylinder in it's original position.

Now proceed to bleed the line through the slave cylinder until a solid stream of fluid comes through, and the pedal pressure becomes firm.

Clutch 'pops' straight to the floor in my 93 300zx


The slave cylinder is replaced simply by removing 2 14mm or 12m nuts on the bottom side of the trans. There is no need for transmission removal.

Remember to point out to the shops that there are two bleeding points for the clutch. On the slave cylinder itself and under the hood on the passenger side. Its right behind the windshield washer fluid fill spot. Sometimes the bleeder is covered with a black cover.
