I replaced the slave cylinder on my 91q20v by working through the
drivers wheel well and from underneath (chassis supported by jackstands).
Through some trial and error, I was able to use a pry bar or
screwdriver to lever the slave into position. This was easier after
lubricating the boot on the slave. Once in position I used a philips
screwdriver to "find" the retainer bolt position, and then was able
to hold the cylinder in position and swap the screw driver with the
Definitely a three beer job - (leaving out all the cursing of course ;-) )
Reverse bleeding the slave and master is another story...I ended up
dumping almost a can of ATE blue on the ground trying to get it done.
Good Luck, this is definitely up there with a timing belt job in
terms of an Audi repair rite of passage.
