Checking clutch mechanism
(slave cylinder is bolted from outside on clutch housing)
– Check if clutch is slipping.
Renew clutch if necessary
“1” The pedal return function must not be hindered by additional
foot mats or foot mats pushed underneath.
“2” Check level of brake fluid in brake fluid reservoir

Checking clutch mechanism

Checking clutch mechanism

Note
- The clutch hydraulics is connected to the brake fluid reservoir via a supply hose -arrow 1- and clip -arrow 2-.
- If no or very little brake fluid is in this chamber, the system may be leaking.
“3” Check clutch hydraulics for external leaks:
• The clutch system must be bled
- Master cylinder
- Supply hose
- Line between master cylinder and slave cylinder
- Connecting points (clip fit and threaded connections) also in areas that cannot be seen.
- Slave cylinder
Symptoms for external leaks are, for example, signs of fluid in or on noise damper under gearbox.
“4” Check for correct routing of line between master cylinder and slave cylinder. The line must not be kinked or trapped.
“5” Depress clutch pedal. To do this, the pedal must be depressed and held over the entire pedal travel in five different positions for approx. 20 seconds (tests different application pressures in the hydraulic system). A second person thereby checks whether any fluid escapes at the positions mentioned in “3”. The first position
also checks whether the clutch pedal drops on its own when pressure is maintained.
“6” Remove slave cylinder from gearbox. Do not open lines and check boot for signs of leaking brake fluid.
Carefully pull boot off plunger -arrow-.

“7” Check function of clutch mechanism during a road test

Note
Only the bleeder -A- is visible when the slave cylinder is located inside the clutch housing.
