Default Help With 6spd Slave Cylinder Replacement

Is this a simple enough job for someone with the skill level of changing brake pads or doing an oil change? Appears i need to change both the cylinder and hydraulic line

The actual part of removal is quite simple. Two bolts holding the slave to the bellhousing (12 or 13 mm) then a banjo bolt and done. You will need a helper in order to bleed manually or use a mighty-vac if you choose to. I use vacuum to bleed, but most FSMs and some techs refrain from doing so....to each their own. Overall id say if you changed a caliper and bled the brakes you can do this no problem.

The hose arrived at the dealer this morning and i just finished installing it with a helper to bleed. I bought the slave cylinder as well but it turns out it was just the hose that failed and caused the clutch to sink to the floor while driving. I'm holding on to the cylinder just in case mine fails soon but for now i'm good. Thanks again for the help..was an easy fix.

Hardest part was watching the car get loaded onto the tow truck lol

Sounds good. Glad shes back and running. On a side note, you could have bought a braided stainless line for under 30 bucks shipped instead of the rubber hose from the dealer. Check my build tread for more info about it as I posted about this a month or so ago.
