Q: What holds the slave e cylinder rod in place

asked by on

The slave e cylinder piston rod is not touching the arm

My car has 200000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hi there. The rod should be held in place by the slave cylinder; the rod has a notch on one end where the small opening of the boot holds and a smaller diameter portion at the other for insertion into the slave cylinder. If the rod is not making contact with the release bearing arm then there is a concern that needs to be addressed. There could be a fault in any part of the clutch system. Have you noticed any noise or smells? How long have you noticed the condition? I suggest having a qualified technician perform an inspection to avoid replacing unnecessary parts. Your Mechanic has several available technicians that can assist you with a clutch is not operating properly inspection.
