Clutch Repair on Vehicles Equipped With a Concentric Slave Cylinder (CSC)
The CSC is a self contained, hydraulic cylinder and release bearing assembly that is mounted inside the bell housing (Figure 1).
To repair the vehicle properly, always install a new, complete CSC assembly (Figure 2) when replacing the clutch. Replacing only a clutch release bearing onto the used and worn CSC body can result in:
- Fluid leakage from the old CSC unit (Figure 3).
- Clutch release problems.
- Reduced service life of the entire clutch system.
PLEASE REFER TO FACTORY SERVICE MANUALS FOR DETAILED APPLICATION SPECIFIC PROCEDURES.
