Clutch Slave Worn?

Recommended Posts

my00 c2 cab

I'm about to drop the gbox for a clutch replacement. (if I can ever break loose those two top bolts...sheesh)

When I removed the slave cylinder from the trans I noticed there is alot of lateral play at the tip of the control rod.

If I hold the cylinder in my hand and wiggle the tip back and forth it moves like a 1/2 inch or more.

Is that normal?

The cylinder is # 99611223706 which I believe is the most recent revision.

The pedal has always felt kind of heavy and the engagment high in the travel, but I don't have anything to compare it to.

It's always been pretty smooth, but if you depress the pedal very slowly and you really concentrate you can feel little 'notches' spaced equally through the travel.

I always assumed it was the boost spring slightly rubbing.

I didn't try to press the piston in or press the pedal because the manual says somthing like;

ACHTUNG depressing the pedal while slave is removed is strictly verboten, serious injury or death from flying piston!

LOL, what an embarressing way to die.

The latest part is the 997 series part.

You want 997.116.237.01 clutch slave cylinder -- US MSRP $141.37

If your pedal is very heavy then chances are you need a new clutch.
