Don't know how to remove your clutch hydraulic assembly? It's not as tricky as it seems, yet, just like any engine repair, both removal and installation procedures may take a few hours. So get ready for a clutch repair action. Before you start, jack up your car first so that you can easily slide and maneuver under your car. Then remove the bolts of your cylinder and hydraulic line. After that, open the hood and remove the bolts of the reservoir. Next, detach the clutch master cylinder so that you can easily remove and install your new clutch hydraulic assembly. Now here comes the hard part: you have to attach the cylinder back in the firewall by twisting it up until it's in the right position. And when you're done with it, snap a new pushrod in your push pedal then bolt in all the other parts you've dissembled. And that's it, you're finished! Well, it's much easier to tear it down than to build it up again, but it's all worth it in the end. So save your cash for car repair and install your new clutch hydraulic assembly in your engine. You can get it here at Auto Parts Warehouse where we offer high-quality auto replacements at rock-bottom prices!

Quick Tips in Buying a New Hydraulic Clutch Assembly
Hydraulic-we often associate that word with adjectives such as
effortless. Well, we're pretty much spot on as those adjectives perfectly describe hydraulic devices after all. With the help of fluids, hydraulic mechanisms can be operated without demanding a lot from you. Generally, you only need to guide hydraulic devices or to give them a little push for them to function. Power steering systems and power brakes are examples of mechanisms that are hydraulically powered. If you've had the opportunity to try them out, you wouldn't want to go back to regular steering and brakes. Another prime example of a hydraulic device is the hydraulic clutch.
Hydraulic Clutch: The Basics
The hydraulic clutch operates in the same manner as the hydraulic braking system does. Much like a hydraulic brake, the hydraulic clutch uses a master cylinder and an actuator cord. It even uses brake fluid as well.
The Advantages of a Hydraulic Clutch
Apart from ease of use, there are other advantages of a hydraulic clutch over a mechanical clutch. One advantage is that it adjusts on its own when the friction material wears out. Although there are times when you'd have to adjust the hydraulic clutch yourself when it doesn't feel comfortable anymore. Don't worry since that isn't hard to do anyway.
Another advantage is that it self-lubricates cables as needed. This means that it's also not as demanding when it comes to maintenance.
Symptoms of a Faulty Hydraulic Clutch
As you know, even hydraulic mechanisms experience issues. When it comes to hydraulic clutches, you'll know right away when there's a problem because you'd be able to feel it as you drive. Below are some common telltale signs of a malfunctioning hydraulic clutch.
- If the hydraulic clutch doesn't seem to have any resistance, the most likely culprit would be low brake fluid supply. There's no need to replace your entire hydraulic clutch assembly. You may want to check if leaks are the cause of your low brake fluid supply though.
- If your hydraulic clutch shifts from being hard to soft or vice versa constantly, then the either the master or the slave cylinder may be broken. You'll need a new hydraulic clutch assembly if that's the case.
What Hydraulic Clutch Assembly to Choose?
Should you need a new hydraulic clutch assembly, you'd want an OEM replacement. An OEM hydraulic clutch assembly is of high quality. It's reliable and very durable-you won't have to replace it again anytime soon. Plus, OEM products won't give you a lot of trouble during installation.
An OEM hydraulic clutch assembly normally costs $100-$200. Some brands to look in to when it comes to hydraulic clutch assemblies are Valeo and Crown Right since they specialize in such products.

How to Adjust a Hydraulic Clutch
As you know, even a hydraulic clutch's friction material will wear out eventually. And when it does wear out, the hydraulic clutch will compensate for it on its own. However, you may not be comfortable with the adjustments that the hydraulic clutch will make. You may want to get in there and adjust it yourself.
If it takes too long before you feel any resistance upon stepping on the clutch pedal, then you'd really have to perform some adjustments. Don't worry; we'll guide you on how to correctly adjust the hydraulic clutch.
Step 1: Park your vehicle on a level surface. Chock your front wheels and activate the hand brake.
Step 2: Find the slave cylinder pushrod. This is the key to adjusting the hydraulic clutch. Determine if the slave cylinder pushrod's length can be adjusted. If not, you'd have to replace it first.
You can locate the slave cylinder pushrod with the help of the clutch master cylinder body. So, go look for the clutch master cylinder body now. See the metal tube that's in the rear side of the clutch master cylinder body? Follow that up to the point in which the metal tube connects to the engine slave cylinder.
Step 3: The engine slave cylinder contains a piston, a seal, a rubber boot, a locking nut, an adjustable nut, and the slave cylinder pushrod that you've been looking for. Now that you've finally found it, take out your wrench. Turn your attention to the adjustable nut and start tweaking. Making the slave cylinder pushrod longer will give the hydraulic clutch more time to engage. Naturally, making the slave cylinder pushrod shorter will cut the time of engagement. Adjust accordingly.
Step 4: Now that your hydraulic clutch has been adjusted, take it out on the road and test it. Hopefully, the hydraulic clutch feels better now. If you're still having issues with it, go adjust the pushrod again.
