Default Clutch Issue

I'm having some issues with my clutch. I got everything put back together on my 02 and after the first startup I went to move the car and the pedal went straight to the floor. Tore apart the slave and the seals were blown out so I replaced the slave cylinder.


Now after bleeding the new slave the pedal is extremely difficult to depress and it won't disengage the clutch. Anyone ever experience this? Could there still be some air in the line that is causing this issue?

Air in the line would make it easy to press

Yeah that's what I was thinking but looking around on the internet some people seemed to think it could be air in the line.

Anyone else have any advice?

Again


Its also very common for the pedal to stick to the floor after a clutch job.. did you try working it out at all before you deemed the slave bad, often after 10-30 cycles the pedal comes back..

All depends on what happened during install.. shouldnt be any reason for the slave to "go"

I deemed the slave bad after I looked at it while a friend pushed the clutch and saw it was blowing fluid out of it. When I removed the slave, tore it apart and looked at it there are chunks of the seals missing. So I'm positive the old slave was bad. Everything also operated fine before it went so I would assume the issue would have to be somewhere in the new slave.

The pedal doesn't stick to the floor. It comes up on it's own with the new slave installed it's just incredibly hard to press and it doesn't disengage. I can run it through the gears while the car is turned off and the TOB is brand new.

The system also holds pressure so I don't think the master is bad. Looking at it while someone operates it, it doesn't seem like the slave is moving far enough to disengage the fork but I don't understand where all the pressure on the pedal is coming from.

Yes. It's a Doorman slave. I think the issue might be with the banjo bolt not lining up properly with the new slave. I might try tearing apart the new slave and using the internals in the OEM housing and see if that solves the problem.
