Hi guys. My slave is leaking and I wanted to take advantage of this to freshen up on a few other parts and fluids while I'm in there. Right now I'm thinking:<p>Slave cylinder<br>Clutch kit<br>Flywheel<br>Rear main seal<br>Angle gear collar (I'm assuming the shaft needs to come off for the job)<br>Motor/Transmission mounts (still debating these)<br>Transmission fluid<br>Angle gear fluid<br>Brake fluid<p>Am I missing anything? Even if I don't use all the parts, depending on their condition once I get in there, I'd like to have them on hand, just in case.

^^ I juuuust finished deleting that part of my original post because I got your e-mail lol<p>You said it was a direct fit though. The autos had different teeth on the collar? Weird.<p>Thanks for the P/N btw! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

new "upgraded" MT part, direct fit to old MT part <p>few things are more confusing in life<p>bottom line, order 31256008, it will be <i>somewhat</i> of an upgrade over the old part

Re: Preparing for Slave Cylinder Job - What other parts should I do while in there? (S60R1)

Speaking with two of my favorite techs this morning, the Air Vent Pipe should be replaced along with the other clutch pieces:<p><IMG SRC="http://images51.fotki.com/v1547/photos/1/10538/4523694/RClutch-vi.gif" BORDER="0"><p>This piece connects directly to the slave cylinger/throw-out bearing and the hydraulic hose that goes to the clutch master cylinder.<p>They also mentioned bleeding the clutch line of all air. They said that sometimes they leave the rear of the car lifted all night in order to get all of the air out. They also said that Volvo's special tool is needed to properly pre-load the pressure plate. I counted five Volvo special tools needed for a clutch replacement in the VIDA software.<p>John<p><i>Modified by Parts @ Boston Volvo at 7:36 AM 7-16-2009</i><BR><BR>

Other optional ones: input shaft seal, and flywheel bolts.

Re: Preparing for Slave Cylinder Job - What other pa ... (rushin_max)

^^ wow, very good stuff from everyone. I'm going to start a parts list <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> there's no way I'll remember everything lol<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>FEO</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">...it will be <i>somewhat</i> of an upgrade over the old part</TD></TR></TABLE><p>I'm actually afraid of doing the collar, because if my original one has held on for 97k miles with spirited driving and launches, should I really replace it? The thing might be caked on solid as a rock. Then again, it might be on its last legs too. I think my plan will work here, have all parts on hand and decide what to replace upon a visual inspection. Oh boy.

Re: Preparing for Slave Cylinder Job - What other pa ... (S60R1)

I wonder if the "dashpot" needs to be bought separately. According to Volvo, it is included with the purchase of the slave cyl/TOB <p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=119058&postid=1268396" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/z...68396</A>
