Do i need new clutch master cylinder?

Recommended Posts

hi All, i was driving a few nights ago when i felt a Pop or snap under my clutch pedal. since then the clutch's felt very hard and much deeper with free play. it used to be the clutch would engage all the way up but since the incident it now engages very quickly, and much shorter. i want to say the clutch itself is not worn cuz it just can't happen over night. i am suspecting the master or slave cylinder to be the problem but am not sure. i am still puzzled on how the pop/snap can be linked to this. any advice would be appreciated.

I would suspect the push rod connection on the pedal and/or the clutch mechanism in first place, clutch cylinders usually do not pop or snap when they fail, starts rather slowly leaking without warning.

Hi Paul,

sounds like your booster-spring that is connected to the clutch-pedal has snapped.

Have a look by taking the plastic panel above the pedals of,and look at the top of the clutch pedal.

You will see a plastic sleeve that contains a (heavy)spring,that has probably broken.

2x + a master cylinder will usually give yo a warning by getting progressively softer and will stop disengaging all the way. You can usually get your "pedal" back by pumping it.

i took a very quick look at the pedal yesterday without seeing anything unusual. i will check tm again in detail to make sure that i didn't miss it. will keep y'all posted.

i didn't experience a popping from the clutch pedal one prior time, it was caused by a broken clip. however the symptoms are differrent because that time the problem was that the clutch pedal was sticking for a split second before it returns. now this time, its changed the way the clutch engages and also the clutch got very hard/heavy with some free play.

swede and glyn,

am i suppose to look for loose spring parts or even if the spring has snapped it will remain in the plastic sheath? i looked at the pedal today and didn't see anything hanging out or hanging loose. but the clutch pedal sure if hell of heavy when i step on it.

thanks

ok since it is impossible to check the mechanism of the booster spring i have ordered a new one from sunset. takes two weeks to ship from germany. no stocks here since its an uncommon failure. does anyone have the diagram on removing the booster spring?

thanks,

Paul
