VIDEO: Understanding The Hydraulic Clutch-Actuation System

VIDEO: Understanding The Hydraulic Clutch-Actuation System

Most later-model vehicles with a manual transmission use a hydraulic system to actuate the clutch.

A hydraulic clutch-actuation system consists of the clutch master cylinder, hydraulic hoses, the clutch slave cylinder and the clutch slave cylinder bearing. These components can be obtained separately or sometimes as a complete assembly. 

There also are several mechanical components: the pedal, the firewall and the over-center spring. 

The performance of the mechanical components is linked to the hydraulic system, so your customers should be inspecting all of the components in the transmission line whenever they’re replacing a clutch or diagnosing an actuation issue. This is really important, because replacing the clutch is one of the most labor-intensive jobs on a vehicle.
