When to change the slave cylinder
Vehicle clutches are complex systems, which consist of many individual components. These include the concentric slave cylinder (CSC), also known as the central release bearing. Like the disks, it is subject to wear. However, when damage occurs, the CSC cannot be repaired – replacing the slave cylinder is the only option.
Changing the slave cylinder is also recommended when replacing the clutch or removing the transmission. Replacing the clutch in isolation may lead to the need for further costly repairs shortly afterwards.
