Comments about CARQUEST Clutch TECHnovation Clutch Slave Cylinder:

This was installed on a 1993 BMW 325is.

One of the best assests of the slave cylinder is that it does fit. It bolts up right in place of the original. Another plus is that it was available locally, instead of needing to special order, or wait for an online order to be delivered (I usually purchase parts from other suppliers). The price was very reasonable, plus there was a discount if purchased online. I called the store to verify there was one in stock, then ordered online for pickup.

The slave is cylinder quite heavy when compared to OEM. It is made of a cast metal, instead of the lighter alloy of the OEM. It comes in a box with some generic instructions. The only thing is the push rod is not inserted into the cylinder. They expect you to do this. I used some assembly lube to make sure I didn't damage the seal when I installed the rod.

Don't bother using the included bleed screw. Reuse the one from the OEM unit. Also, keep track of the cover for the bleed screw, since the new one does not include one.

You'll want to use line wrenches, if you have them. 11mm for the hose fitting and 7mm for the bleed screw.

Make sure to properly bleed the slave cylinder, otherwise it won't work. Google it, but it's fairly easy. After getting the initial air out by bleeding (like you would brakes, with a hose on the screw). I use a pressurized bleeder, but it does not get all the air out. Pump the clutch pedal to build some pressure. Unbolt the cylinder from the transmission. Turn it over so the bleed screw is pointing up. Make sure the hose is still on the bleed screw. Push the rod, slowly, into the cylinder. Open the bleeder. Once the bubbles stop coming out, then close the bleeder. Slowly release the rod. Repeat until no more air comes out of the bleeder. Bolt everything back up, check the reservoir, and you're on your wate.

    Aluminum replaced cast. Bleeder valve so stubby that hose would not stay on it. No excuse for that. Works fine once bled.

    Comments about CARQUEST Clutch TECHnovation Clutch Slave Cylinder:

    Works as a slave cylinder should and fit correctly. However, the nipple on the bleed screw was very small which made it hard to bleed without making a mess. I swapped the bleed screw with my old screw which threaded in perfectly.

      Comments about CARQUEST Clutch TECHnovation Clutch Slave Cylinder:

      Like OEM, no complaints! I installed this on my 1999 BMW 328is and it fits beautifully.

      For others installing on the BMW: make sure to bleed it partially outside the housing (pour liquid through the system, open the valve on the cylinder, then press the end of the cylinder inward by pushing the whole unit on something like the transmission housing. Eventually fluid will start dripping out. At this point, you will close the valve and release the pressure that was holding the push rod in. DO NOT EVER PRESS THE PEDAL WHILE IT IS OUTSIDE THE CAR. It doesn't have to be a perfect bleed, but enough to get some liquid inside.

      The whole point of the above step is so that you can hear fluid moving when you install it due to the push rod being partially compressed - this helps make sure you have properly aligned your slave cylinder into the nipple it sits against inside the transmission housing.

      Good luck!
