    Blown Slave Cylinder

    Would I need to have the cylinder fully compressed or could I have it half compressed. That would at least prove the seal. Then to get it in o would have to release fluid but if it fails when it's then installed, it will mean the push rod is Too long. To be honest I may just shorten pushrod anyway.

    It’s similar. The cup is a seal that sits in a groove in the piston. A photo on post #47 shows it’s position. It’s looking like I can see the bottom of the seal but not quite the flap part, but it sure would be close.

    It its hard to tell from the small hole. Will get the magnifying glasS on it to see if I can work it out. If I shorten the pushrod then that should allow the piston to sit forward more.

    Just a very very very basic drawing

    I thought the same thing. Surely it Would have to have a substantial amount of pressure to blow past a seal. If it has air in the system would that cause fluid to leak out? I just thought it wouldn’t work properly. The issue isn’t that it’s not working, it’s that it is spewin out past the seal.

    So I habe not tried the vacuum bleeding method but I purchased one a the other day. When I have some time I will try it. So should the piston be moving all the way to the back of the cylinder or should there be a gap between it? I’ve attached a picture of the piston and seal and the view from...

    Blown Slave Cylinder

    Hey Ian, So I started some investigating, when I pushed the slave into position it has actually pushed the piston the full length back in the cylinder. Is there supposed to be a gap to allow fluid behind? should I shorten the pushrod? As the fluid comes in from the side, it might be squirting...

    Hey Ian, Thanks for the reply! I'm assuming by the length question your saying that if its not long enough then it's extending ut not pushing on the clutch fork? I think it's fine as when I insert the slave into position it has to compress itself so it can slide in far enough so it's...

    so in regards to alignment, it basically gives no room for error. it slides into a hole with a perfect fit and is push in to a point were a bolt goes through transaxle to hold it in position. there is no adjustment for back and forth. as i put the slave in the piston is pushed back into bore...

    The starter pinion has been fixed, Im pretty sure it was only an issue as I had it in first gear when I started it and just had the clutch in. But as there was no clutch it just ripped the pinion apart. I had a look and found the hole to look pretty centered. The only thing I can think of is if...

    Blown Slave Cylinder

    I would imagine the alignment shouldn't change as it was fine before and the slave cylinder slides into the hole so there is no alignment option. Unless it's either always been like that or something has happened? The only other issue I had was the starter pinion disappeared at the same time...

    Blown Slave Cylinder

    Can you clarify what you mean when you say over extend? As in it travels outside of the bore? Or as in (I will try my best to explain) if you push it and it moves 2cm then release it goes back 1 cm then press it again and then it attempts to push 2cm but it cant go that far and blows past the...

    Blown Slave Cylinder

    Is it the clutch fork that's pushing it back? If that's the case then the piston will get pushed back into the same spot it always has? I'm just finding it strange that the setup has been this way since 2005 and then all of a sudden it randomly blows seals. Hopefully I will get a chance to have...

    If the pedal goes all the way back would that indicate the slave is travelling all the way back?

    I will have to get back to you on the diameters, however it's the same as what's been in the car since 2005 so wouldn't think the issue would just show up now?

    Blown Slave Cylinder

    It's the Audi 100 5 speed. There is a spring pushing the piston towards the clutch fork and it can't get past the internal retaining ring. I'm pretty sure it is still working the clutch but have to try and test that to make sure. Hopefully get that done tonight or tomorrow. It was leaking...

    Blown Slave Cylinder

    I dont want to to mess with it, they will use that as an excuse to not replace it under warranty. It's leaking out of the bore, past the piston and into the rubber boot. I believe they were both brand new but I dont really know 100%

    Blown Slave Cylinder

    Hey Ian, The pedal retracts every time with no issue returning to the unpressed position. It's impossible to tell from what i can see to which position the slave is in and whether it is getting pushed all the way back. (Unless I'm misunderstanding what your asking) When I install the slave I...
