Clutch slave cylinder .... #$@!

The roll pin came out nicely using the 3/8" (5mm) punch reccomended by
another lister on my 85 4Ksq.  I would think it would be the same size
needed as yours.  Just a normal flat tipped punch.

Had a friend hold the punch and I tapped from below (a little easier to get
to it w/ hammer)  It slid right out and fell onto the ground next to me.

Good luck.
The Audi gods must be overstocked with slave cylinders in their warehouse...
