Help with the slave

Dies anyone know gow to disconnect the slave from the fluid hydro line? I was driveing today and I was shifting from 4th to 3rd and my clutch pedal just slammed to the floor and no back pressure it just stayed pinned to the floor. Stoped and took a look under the truck and there was fluid everywhere. Looked at the slave and it wass dry but all along the frame and under the clutch master was soaked, ??? Thanks,for,the help

Sounds more like the master failed, not the slave. In any event, your best bet is a whole new hydraulic system. Whichever one failed, the other is probably not far behind. For about the same price as the master and slave, you can get a complete system, master line and slave, filled and bled and sealed. Waay easier to install, and no bleeding.

Yeah just get the whole set up from rockauto or auto parts warehouse. Bleeding them out is a major pain in the *** if you just change one part.
