Default DIY- How to Replace the Master & Slave Cylinder on a '05 TSX

Happy Friday guys!

Let's kick off the weekend with another informative Do-It-Yourself article documenting the procedure for replacing the master and slave cylinder in a 2005 TSX. Who said that labour day weekend is best spent relaxing on the shore of some pristine beach?

--Master Cylinder--

1) Use a suitable siphon or a clean turkey baster to remove the brake fluid from the clutch master cylinder.

2) Disconnect the clutch pipe from the master cylinder. (refer to this TSX diagram if necessary)

3) Remove the reservoir hose from the master cylinder reservoir.

4) Pull out the cotter pin on the pedal rod.

5) Pull the pedal pin out of the yoke.

6) Unfasten the retaining nuts, then remove the clutch master cylinder.

7) Installation is the reverse of removal.

--Slave Cylinder--

1) Locate the slave cylinder. (ref #10 in the aforementioned diagram)

2) Remove the flare fitting and steel line from the slave cylinder assembly.

3) Remove the slave cylinder from the clutch housing by removing the attaching bolts.

4) Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

5) Fill and bleed the clutch system, using a suitable DOT 3 or 4 brake fluid.

Caution: Do not spill brake fluid on any of the vehicles painted surfaces. It will damage the paint! Also, don't spill any on the clutch master cylinder damper either.
