How is your clutch hydraulic repair, Aaron? Did you manage to
commandeer a helper to operate the clutch pedal while you observe the
slave cylinder and hose?
If you need a new flexible hose between the master and slave, it is
about $70 from the dealer. However, it is a brake fluid hose and
uses the same fittings as a brake
hose. I had the flexible part replaced on one for $16 at a local
hydraulic hose shop. They had a full array of metric brake line
fittings and made the repair in about 15
minutes. The alternative was the dealer part and 3 days delay. They
could not make the entire line because of the extreme bends in the
hard line near the slave
unless they eliminated those, but crimped on a new flexible line on
the old ends, so be careful with the wrench on those just as you
would hard brake lines.
