Clutch slave cylinder removal

I started on my clutch this morning and had a question on the removal of what looks to be the clutch slave cylinder. It's on the drivers side of the tranny and has a big arrow that says "LOCK" and has a little roll pin next to it.

Anyone have any info on how to get this off? Looks pretty flimsy, I don't want to break it.

Thanks.

Rob

That roll pin holds the line in place, The easiest way to bleed the clutch, is to take the master cylinder off the firewall and pull the whole complete slave cylinder master cylinder line and res out all as one and prime it outside the truck

Both the slave and master come out the same way its a 1/4 turn and it unlicks out of its keyed spot.

well last time I check the Master was on the tranny but anyways... when ever you have a truck to bleed the clutch in let me know and I will find one myself and see which one is faster... just undo it from the tranny and pump from there.... while sitting or laying under your truck if you have air in the clutch you can hear the bubbles going up... pump it a could of times and then go put more fuild in the reservaior.... do it till you don't hear any more bubbles... that will not take you no more than 5 mins.... so how long does it take to do it your way???

Yeah you are right, I replaced the slave and master at the same time so thats why I had it all out. You can just give it a few good solid strokes at the slave and bleed all the air out. The slave cylinder does have enough volume with a full stroke of it, will displace all of the clutch line.

No its cool dude, you jogged my memory and I remebered why I had the whole thing out was because I changed them both at the same time. Now I will argue to say that if you are changing the master cylinder, the only thing keeping that whole assembly from coming out is the 1/4 turn of the slave, and a plastic clip that keeps the line from rattling.
