Hydraulic clutch set up

Post by shonkers » Mon Nov 27, 2017 10:00 pm

Hi guys i'm after the hydraulic clutch sealed set up that includes the master and slave cylinders and reservoir, i changed the clutch recently due to release bearing giving up the ghost and jamming itself onto the input shaft but the pedal still goes to the floor and no way of bleeding the bleeding thing, there's one on fleabay £130 but after shelling out £98 for clutch thought i'd try here first cheers

2.1td, 2.0 turbo and early (D8) HDi's. The V6 was apparently different - I thought they were the same but I just checked Service Box to see if they were still available but they're all NLS now :(

I've always wondered if it would be possible to convert to the D8 HDi system, which has speperate components, a bleed nipple and uses the brake fluid reservoir.

Any chance you could force the lid off the reservoir, get some fluid in there and hang it in the hope it self-bleeds?

I saw a thread which some models have same slave and another model has same master but you need different pedal cluster, i already took the reservoir lid off bit wary cos of the warnings not to and it came off very easily its made of soft rubber i was armed with big screwdriver and prybar but didnt need them i just prised it off with my fingers, anyway there was no fluid in there and no sign of any leak so filled it up and tried back bleeding it using pushrod on slave but to no avail got some bubbles and dirty fluid rising but pedal still on the floor, i think when the bearing jammed the extra pressure blew a seal somewhere, ive seen a new one on fleabay for £130, i'll trawl the scrappys first cheets

Just checking Service Box, the pedal's different but the bracket's the same, as is the clutch fork.

It's up to you how you fix it, it's just been on my mind since the sealed system went obsolete and it was bothering me that otherwise good cars were going to go to scrap because of it.
