Clutch Master Cylinder by Dorman®. The clutch master cylinder is a key component on a manual transmission vehicle. When you depress the clutch pedal, it applies hydraulic pressure to disengage the clutch so you can shift gears. A leaky or worn clutch master cylinder can’t develop the proper pressure, which can make shifting difficult or even impossible. This Dorman clutch master cylinder will restore hydraulic pressure and your ability to shift gears.
- Restores proper clutch operation
- Direct replacement for perfect fit and function
- Reinforced nylon, cast iron or aluminum construction for long service life
- High quality EPDM rubber components ensure compatibility with brake fluid
- Rigorously tested to ensure conformity with product standards
- Meets or exceeds OEM quality
When you push down on the brake pedal, the brake master cylinder applies hydraulic pressure to actuate the caliper pistons, which apply the brake pads to the rotors to stop your car. The clutch hydraulic system operates in a similar manner, but instead of calipers the hydraulic pressure actuates a slave cylinder and the clutch release bearing, disengaging the clutch and temporarily disconnecting the drivetrain from the engine so you can shift the transmission gears. Like the brake master cylinder, the clutch master cylinder can suffer defects like fluid leaks, internal wear of the bore and piston seals, and air in the system, which can reduce hydraulic pressure. These defects can reveal themselves in symptoms like a spongy pedal, difficulty shifting and popping out of gear.
If inspection and testing proves your clutch master cylinder to be faulty, a Dorman clutch master cylinder will restore hydraulic pressure and get your clutch and shifting capability back in operation. Dorman clutch master cylinders are designed to be direct replacements for the original equipment master cylinder, so you can be assured of ease of installation and proper function. They’re manufactured using the highest quality materials like reinforced nylon, cast iron or aluminum, according to application, and use premium EPDM rubber components that are compatible with the brake fluid used in the hydraulic system. Numerous quality control measures are employed to ensure this Dorman clutch master cylinder meets or exceeds OE product standards.
