Slave cylinder leaking? Replacement?

Hello all, I have a 1996 S10 Vortec V6 (code W) and the 5 speed manual transmission. My clutch system is currently leaking I believe as it is taking fluid and still going soft in the pedal on me on occasion. I think it is the slave cylinder (most likely suspect) and want to know how difficult this is to replace. I have heard that you need to pull the tranny in order to access the slave cylinder, is this true?

thanks in advance.

Yes the slave cylinder is inside the transmission. So the transmission will have to be taken out

Re: Slave cylinder leaking? Replacement?

I couldnt get any pics up but hope this helps. This is straight from GM.. Concentric cylinder is another name for the slave. This is for a 2000 but the slave is the same as a 96 so the instructions should be the same. Also dont forget to remove the hydraulic line from the slave :-)


Remove the transmission. Refer to Transmission Replacement in Manual Transmission - NV1500 or Transmission Replacement in Manual Transmission - NV 3500.



Remove the 2 bolts securing the concentric actuator cylinder to the clutch housing.
Remove the actuator cylinder from the transmission input shaft. If required, the bearing can be removed from the actuator cylinder for replacement.
Installation Procedure




Position the actuator cylinder to the transmission input shaft. Ensure that the bleed screw and the coupling are positioned toward the transmission ports.
Notice: Refer to Fastener Notice in Cautions and Notices.

Secure the concentric actuator cylinder to the clutch housing with 2 bolts.

Tighten
Tighten the bolts to 8 N·m (71 lb in).

Install the transmission. Refer to Transmission Replacement in Manual Transmission - NV1500 or Transmission Replacement in Manual Transmission -

Thanks a lot Peko, appreciate the info. I will have to take it to the garage as I do not have the facilities to remove the tranny, was kind of hoping it would be easier than that.
