Master/slave clutch cylinder replacement 95

Hello everyone. I have a 95 YJ that needs new master and slave cylinders. I've read on here about the sealed unit sold through the dealership and I'd like to just buy that and replace them myself. I'm a pretty amature mechanic though.

From what I've read it's a quick and easy repair to make. I just want to verify that's true. Circumstances are such that I don't really have any tools with me after a recent move so I'll have to buy any tools I need for the job. Can anyone give me a quick list of what I will need?

If I can't get the sealed unit (may be on back order) how much more difficult will it be to replace a separate master and slave? Is the additional complication just the bleeding? I've successfully bled my front brake calipers after replacement. Will bleeding the clutch cylinders be similar or is there more to it?

Thanks a lot.

If you buy them seperate. Bleeding will be the same as with brakes. You'll need to follow the instructions with the master cylinder...it may need bench bled. Whicj is simply pumping thepluger a few times to get air out of it while it's still out of the Jeep. As far as tools, probably a basic socket set will do. None of those bolt should be the dreaded torx.

Thanks for the reply. It sounds like buying the parts separately won't be too much more work than the sealed unit if I can't get a hold of it quickly.

Get the sealed unit. It even comes with the fluid in it! I had never replaced one before and it took me about 10 mins. All you need is a socket set, don't remember which size tho.

the stealership price is about $159 about 3 years ago.

I went to Advance Auto, Autozone, Pep Boys to try and just buy a new slave and they all told me that they do not carry a master or a slave cylinder for my Jeep that I would have to go to the dealership. I do not know how you could just buy what you need and fix it. It is a sealed unit and from what I can remember from mine the hydraulic lines have pressed on fixed fittings they are not threaded.

I found it for $122.25 through www.makeitmopar.com. I haven't installed it yet but it looks very simple.

Edit: I contacted two dealerships and got prices of $200 and $250. That's in Hawaii though and things tend to cost more here

Just did it with a dealer part - master, slave, hose - all filled and sealed.
1 hour bolt on job - works perfect.

Then I blew both front brake lines.....

I just installed my sealed unit last night. I moved recently and didn't have any tools so I was trying to make the wrong tools fit into small spaces. Once I got the right tools it went quickly. It could easily be done in 30-60 minutes. It's working great.

does anyone have a picture of the slave cyl that is the seperate one? i am trying to do a external slave conversion and i have a mater cyl that is not very old and i need to see how the hydro line conects to the slave so that i can determin if i need to replace it too or just the slave. i can get the slave from O'Reilly's for about 40bucks (love discounts) and from Napa for about 45 i think it was, but they all have to order it and i want to make sure if i am going ot need the hose or not.

that guy was feeding you a bunch of bull, http://www.partsamerica.com/ProductD...pe=234&ptset=A

This is the place that advance gets there stuff from, they are cheaper and most shipping is free. If I don't need a part in a hurry I go here and save a few bucks.

hey any of you with a 94 or 95 that have replaced your master/slave with the "sealed" unit, do you still have your hose that goes from the master to the slave? i am doing a conversion to an external slave on my YJ and the hose is all i need left.
