slave cylinder

anyone changed the slave cylinder on an 06 6 spd? went for a drive today and my clutch pedal stayed on the floor. master was out of fluid and when i put more in it just leaked onto the ground. cant get the part until monday and was wondering what it was like to change.

May I suggest you change out the whole KIT, as opposed to just changing out the slave cylinder? Trust me, you will never be able to bleed the system if you attempt to change just the cylinder. I even begin to question why they can be purchased by themselves in the first place. If you buy the kit from Ford, it would come completely assembled from clutch master, line and slave cylinder all filled with fluid. All you do, is install it, and upon the first clutch pedal application, you're good to go.

i'm going to get it from ford, if the picture i saw online was correct, it comes with the slave piston held in with zip ties. do you install with them on and the pedal application breaks them or cut them and install?

Do you remember the part number? Yes, you leave the zipties attached during installation. The very first application will break the zipties free. Like I said, make sure it's the whole kit you get. If I recall correctly, the price of just the slave by itself wasn't very far off from the price of the kit anyways.

i didnt get the p/n but was told it was complete with lines etc, and was around 270. i was going to get it for less hassle, the money wasnt my major concern. i want it to work so i can have my truck back. i have a honda odyssey van and a front spring broke , which is very common, and its about 90 bucks more to buy a complete strut assy vs just the spring. seven bolts, plus removing the wheel and you are done. i get most of my parts from the dealers, my time is worth more than the hassle.

ps m-chan if you want to move to one of the most expensive places on earth to live, vancouver, i know the owner of a large ford store here.
