Question Clutch Master Cylinder

Hi everyone,

I have a 2006 PT 5 spd manual is there a bleeder screw on it? Is this separate from the Brake master? How hard is it to replace.

Hot weather issue not shifting already tried the pedal trick, new clutch and tranny under warranty in April. Any ideas?

Yes changed the brake fluid with Mopar DOT 3.

Thanks

Default Re: Clutch Master Cylinder

if you pushed the rod in and pulled the pedal up while you did it, and it still isn't enough, try shimming the slave with washers like this guy did. Stiff transmission when hot?

my 2002 has no clutch bleeders anywhere. you really need to get under the front and look. it may have one, but it probably does not. mine definitely does not.

since the rod on mine is fully extended, next time mine acts up i'm going to do this trick to my car. sure beats $200 for a new pre-bled master slave kit.

I had the same question back when my clutch was failing, and while I thought maybe it was related to the master cylinder, it wasn't. I adjusted the pedal rod all the way out, and would hold down on it. When I pushed on the brakes, the clutch pedal would literally sigh at me and head towards the floor. Wasn't the clutch nor the slave cylinder causing the issue, it was my brakes!!!!!!

Here's the details on the LHD version:

Randy's correct, and the link is good, however it's for non-turbo models. If you have a turbo, let me know and I'll drop the process in here from the OEM service manual.
