RE: [DML] Re: CLUTCH PROBLEMS WITH 6944



IMHO, the easy way to replace the slave cylinder is to remove the intake
manifold, it greatly improves access to the slave.

 

Removing the intake requires removing the air filter, the throttle and
air mix, idle speed motor, etc.  It's not for a total beginner, but is
do-able.  My repeated advice is to go to a junkyard that has a Volvo
with our same engine and pull that one apart first.  It's not exactly
the same, but it's close enough that you will learn a lot, and you won't
be working on your baby, so mistakes are ok.

 

I'd argue that if its time to replace the clutch hydraulics, you will
probably find more that needs to be done when you pull the intake off
and apart.  It's better to do the work now rather than waiting for
something else to go out.  For example, if your water pump or the hoses
under the intake are leaking, even seeping, the antifreeze can eat
through the engine casing causing a world of pain. 

 

Dive in, do the work, ask here and local owners for help and assistance.
In the end you'll have a lot more knowledge about the car, more
confidence in your ability to fix it, and a more reliable vehicle.

Can anyone tell me if I have to drop the transmission to replace the
slave or is there an easier way of doing it?

If the resovoir is full have an asssitant step on the clutch while you
watch the slave cylinder. It should move. If it doesn't then bleed the
system. If that doesn't help just rebuild or replace the master and
slave cylinders. Any sign of brake fluid leakage is "not a good
thing". Look behind the front, left wheel for the hose coming off of
the clutch master. If you see a plastic hose replace it, if you see a
metal braided hose you should not need to replace the hose, only the
cylinders.
