Compass clutch help!!!

A lady up here at work had the slave cylinder go out on her compass. I've replaced slave cylinders before, what would I be looking at on the compass, never worked on one before, hell I've never really looked under one.

Not good news.

The clutch release system utilizes a slave cylinder of a concentric design, having all components fixed about the same axis. The concentric slave cylinder (CSC) is mounted to the inside of the clutch bellhousing and is serviced only as an assembly.

1. Remove transaxle from vehicle (Refer to TRANSMISSION/TRANSAXLE/MANUAL - REMOVAL).
2. Remove bolts to slave cylinder-to-clutch bellhousing bolts and remove slave cylinder (1) from transaxle.


The sorta good news :

NOTE: The clutch master cylinder/hydraulic release system does not have its own reservoir. This system is supplied fluid from the brake master cylinder reservoir.

So first off, check the brake Fluid.

It looks like it's under the Brake Master. This is a very brief description of how to remove it and just one picture (ignore the numbers in the picture for now). I can do a better write tomorrow. Let me know what you need

1. Remove the engine cover.
2. Remove air cleaner assembly.
3. Disconnect battery negative cable.
4. Remove lower instrument panel bezel.

thanks you've been a great help. After doing some research online it looks like this is not the first incident like this for a compass. There was even a report of a similar proble on lemon busters. I think shes just gonna take it to the stealership and hope a recall comes out later.

After reading what you said I basically flip floped from "oh yea I can do it during lunch" to "I aint touching that"
