the slave cylinder is nothing but trash this is the second unit ive put in within 30 days of buying it and not even 30 days before both of them failed. Perfection clutch items and accessories are the worst buy and they will not hold up, it has caused damage to my clutch and not to mention the clutch hydraulic line has popped out of the cylinder on me multiple times its the worst product made and should be discontinued. do not recommend this product to your friends, fair warning.

            Comments about CARQUEST Clutch TECHnovation Clutch Slave Cylinder:

            The slave cylinder works great its the new and improved line connection that is the problem. If you purchase this unit put the old line connector on from the one you replaced. Do yourself a favor and make this replaceent before you install the new unit. It is easily done by popping the spring pin out of both units. Don't do as I did and make the assumption that the problem that is referred to in the other reviews has been solved, it hasn't been. The new connection works well the first time you install it; but if you have to remove the line to replace the clutch slave cylinder as I did, it will not go back again. Trust me on this one. REPLACE THE CONNECTOR.

              if you attempt to use the "new and improved" quick clip you are waisting your time it WILL blow out after a while, expecially if your insert is worn like mine. Simple solution is remove the drive pin for the quick connect from new and old slaves put old one( "shark bite" style clip) on the new slave; hydrolic pop out solved... just do it befor putting the tranny back in or you will be pulling it again to do as I have said( most common problem and best solution)

              QUICK DISCONNECTS DO NOT MATCH (4/15/2017)

              By 

              from Lexington, North Carolina

              Comments about CARQUEST Clutch TECHnovation Clutch Slave Cylinder:

              Like many others, I assumed the quick disconnect issues with the original hydraulic clutch line and the new slave cylinder were operator errors. THEY WERE/ARE NOT. Do not be like me and buy this part without researching which Hydraulic Clutch Line you have. Look at the end of your existing line after disconnecting. If you have to slide a plastic ring down to depress the locking springs inside of the slave cylinder quick disconnect then this part WILL NOT WORK WITH YOUR EXISTING HYDRAULIC CLUTCH LINE. You MUST buy a NEW Hydraulic Clutch Line that will be accepted by the NEW quick disconnect hook-up on the NEW slave cylinder. I have not picked up my NEW Hydraulic Clutch Line (and Master Cylinder) yet, but I am hopeful that they will resolve this issue.

              Here's the link to the New Hydraulic Clutch Line needed for this Slave Cylinder:

                bought this for a transmission rebuild. I got it installed in the truck and read several different instructions on how to bleed the system. Not only was the so called "easy connection" not easy it leaked everywhere. also the bleed screw broke completely off the housing with little effort. do not buy this there are cheaper alternatives with better construction.

                    My vehicle and most vehicles that use this style of part have several points of likely failure. The mechanical bit between the pedal and the hydraulics (gets worn and loose, wallowed out), the hydraulics, the bushings, bearings (plastic pieces break, chip away) etc... and of course this bit that is prone to debris build-up, seal failure. (esp in cold weather)
