Master & Slave Cylinder

Hey guys, I went and bought the master and slave cylinder from Dodge a few minutes ago and after I got home saw where its in two peaces. The slave isn't connected to the master cylinder part. DOes it just snap together or what? I read on here where it was already bled and ready to go once its installed. They may've sold me the wrong thing??? I've got to get my truck back on the road!

Nope, you got the right parts. It does just snap together, pedal might be a bit mushy on the first two or three pushes, but once it's all installed, it'll be fine. I would recommend installing the master cylinder, routing the cable down, installing the slave cylinder, before you connect them, just because trying to snake the cable down with the slave already attached is a major PITA. nothing to it!

Thanks man, I started worrying a bit after I got home and opened it up. I've already bought the slave cylinder and found out the hard way not to do that....I don't know why I didn't read the forums first.

Just curious but what was the reason you changed them?

I got the truck back on the road. Wasn't to bad of a job. The other day I started out and hit the clutch and the truck kept going. Had to turn the truck off to get it back in gear. Had to drive her home with no clutch pedal 40 miles... Not a fun drive.

There was no sign giving any indication. It just quit?

The other day before it went completely out I hit the gas and it felt like the clutch was slipping and then it grabbed. I knew something was going on then...figured it was the slave. I've had the same thing on a different vehicle. The clutch pedal also felt like it didn't start working till I pushed it all the way to the floor. I had to put a new tranny in it about 5,000 miles ago and redid the flywheel and new clutch. I'd say the new clutch is what finished off the clutch master slave cylinder. The hardest thing of the job was getting the clip off the clutch pedal.

Thanks. The reason I ask is because my master cylinder acts totally normal in the morning but as the day progresses and especially if it gets hot out, the clutch pedal begins to get this herky jerky rubbery squeaky feel and sound. I can live with the annoyance but I just dont want it to stop working all of a sudden. I should buy another one just in case but I can think of a lot of other things I need to spend at least $250 on.

Come to think about it my clutch pedal had been making a strange sound as well...I had forgot all about it till now. When I took it off the clutch pedal it looked like it had been leaking. Its probably the part that gave out over the slave cylinder. Can't blame you for not wanting to buy one till it does go down but it took the dealership a day to get the part so if you don't have an extra vehicle it might not be a bad idea to get one if you think its coming soon.

Knock on wood, my clutch seems to work fine but my pedal gets this rubbery squeaky feeling and sound the longer I drive it for the day. The next morning it feels better. I chased the noise to the master cylinder and it doesn't seem like there's any of that being transmitted up from the slave or clutch itself. Figuring I had nothing to loose since I was needing a new M/S setup anyways.....last night I pushed the clutch pedal in about half way, pulled the clutch switch away from the firewall, and spayed PB Blast lubricant in along side the shaft. This morning my clutch felt way more smooth, so I'll see if that silky feeling goes away toward the end of the day again.
