Hydraulic clutch pedal "sticking" in down position
Posted 28 July 2003 - 07:49 AM
The last time it happened, I think the lever coming out of the transmission was not pressing up against the push rod coming out of the slave cylinder. Could something be binding inside the clutch assembly? I would hate to take the tranny out only to find out that something simpler was the cause.
The master cylinder had been replaced so I am considering replacing the slave cylinder.
Thanks in advance,

it entails replacing the clutch hose and slave cylinder and bleeding the system.
replacement parts for the 95-02 legacy:
clutch operating cylinder: 30620AA042
hose - clutch: 37251AC001
Gaskets for hose (need 2): 114130151

I suspect it will at least require a new slave and maybe the hose.
This used to be a common problem on Ford commercial trucks that I worked on years ago. The slaves really take a beating compared to the masters.
The last time I mentioned it here the common answer was to bleed it. If it needs bleeding it is getting air somewhere.
Glad someone found the TSB which verifies my theory.
I should change that stuff before it fails, not after.

Looks like this extends to the WRX family as well.
