slave cylinder?

well well, took my baby out and decided because it was a nice out to replace the clutch fluid. So i get my trusty haynes manual out to find where the bleeder is located on my jeep and the book says on the passenger side for all 4 cyl. models....i check and realize that it is on the drvier's side. Haynes for jeep yj's SUX!!!!!!!
said that from experience...

so i go to unscrew the bleeder with an alan key and the whole top part of the cylinder cracks off and i have fun with dot 3 fluid all over me!!!!

and thus the jeep is in the driveway, i have my first jeep meeting tomorrow, and i m not sure what the part is called

my question is what is this part? slave cylinder???? how much should i pay roughly???? and should i got OEM or not?

thanx in advance

i agree with JD about the autozone brakeware stuff. stay away from Tru built too. (same manufacturer i think cause i got it at a different store and it's doing the same thing as the brakeware and looks identical. getting a dealer part soon) anyway enough about my problems. what year jeep are you talking about? the 94 and 95 models had factory sealed master and slave cylinders. an allen key to undo the bleeder? i guess there might be some slave cylinders out there with that but all the one's i've seen are made for a small wrench. and i've never seen a 4 cyl with the bleeder on the driver side. i have the Haynes manual and the Chilton's and both say it's on the passenger side and with my 88 4cyl, it is. I agree that haynes can be a bit vague at times, but it was right on the money with my jeep. did you buy the jeep used? might be that someone swapped an AX-15 in there from a 6 cyl. as for the broken bleeder, i think what you're saying is that the bigger cylinder that the bleed nut screws into cracked near the line or the line itself cracked. if so, you might try getting a piece of brake line and some compression fittings and putting a new bleeder on rather then pull the tranny to change the whole slave cylinder. it's up to you and i'm still a little vague on what broke where so it might not be possible, but i'd personally try something like that before ripping out the tranny. if you want to go that route, you're gonna need a new slave cylinder/throwout bearing assembly. they are one and the same in the models with beedible clutches. if you're pulling the tranny, might as well get the kits that come with the clutch plates, slave cyl, etc and just replace everything being you're in there. the kits usually run around 180 to 210. just make sure you've got the right tranny down there, cause it sounds fishy that it's on the driver's side. HTH and let us know the year so we can pinpoint this better.

I've got a '94 4 cyl. and just got done replacing the master cylinder, and the bleeder screw for mine is also on the driver side above the slave cylinder. I had to use an alan key to bleed it also. Don't no for sure what broke on yours though. Can you descibe it more?

i have a 93 yj and the bleeder is on the drivers side, 94 model year yjs, im not sure about 95, had an external slave cylinder, but im not sure if that was located on the drivers side or not, if it were me, i would just buy a whole clutch kit and replace everything at once, unless you have an external slave cyl. or you just had the clutch replaced.

Try the Napa Brand of brake parts, if you buy their top of the line stuff there is a life time warranty with it.

I am new to Jeep so I can't help unless I see what is going on.
Do you have any pics, so we can see what has broken, then maybe someone can make a positive determination of the broken.

LOL

you're not supposed to bleed the 94 and 95 models as far as I know. 87 through 93 all had internal slaves, but when they went external, they made them factory sealed. I won't say you can't do it, but the manuals all say that they're not supposed to be bleedable

Yes.

You may want to start a new thread next time, instead of reviving an ancient one.

Search first, ask second. Good customer.
btw, his Jeep is older than the thread, of course. Info still good, relevant. What's the problem? Is there some imaginary "don't go back that far" line?
Newb (I) read the rules but missed that part.

Yeah the 95s have externals and are factory sealed, only from the 2 that I have seen, but mine had an aftermarket slave on it, and it has a bleed screw, and its an allen key.
They are on the driverside as well.
And wow, this is an old thread. Hmm, it wasn't a really informative one though, shouldn't have been on the search if you ask me.

Not if you pull the engine!

(i swapped out a 2.5L engine on my 93 without removing the transmission...)

The slave is literally wrapped around the transmission input spline. Removing the tranny isn't that bad unless the mounting bolts are rusted, which is guaranteed if the jeep is in the north at that age.
