FIAT BRAVA 182 Clutch Slave Cylinder

With reference to this post httphttpwww.fiatforum.combrav...g-i-think.html I think this must have been an early warning that my clutch slave cylinder was in its road to failure. Drove down to the folks in Shoebury on the Essex coast on Saturday. Went to move the car as I was going to check my headlamp alignment against the garage doors compared to the folks Puntos headlamps (which has just passed its

if you examine the way the cylinder pushes against the clutch fork you can see how the piston could be pulled sideways if it had a small amount of play and was to catch on the fork. this is what happens when it fails which is why it goes from no leak to big leak in one press of the clutch pedal. then you only have a few pumps of the pedal until you lose enough brake fluid to get air in the hydraulic

FIAT BRAVA 182 Clutch or slave cylinder

I have a problem with a 98 brava 1.4sx. The clutch does not appear to be disengaging fully when the pedal is pressed. It is very difficult not possible to put the car into gear. It is impossible to select reverse with the engine on. When in gear and with the clutch pedal fully down the car creeps forward. The problem does not seems to improve with pumping the clutch pedal. What is the best way of finding

leaks and fluid loss are the best way to check after that you should bleed the slave cylinder to see if it improves things. you can also ask someone to pump your clutch pedal while you watch the slave cylinder to make sure it is moving the clutch fork as expected. if it is misaligned or loose it may not push far enough. if you still get no joy its clutch change time.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Clutch Slave Cylinder

How easy is this to do I have the part and aint really clued up with mechanically side of the motoring but would have a go... so is there a guide on how to replace it and also to bleed the system How do you bleed the system i can see the nipple which to bleed etc. Cheers

UPDATE Just finished replacing the clutch slave cylinder and apart from me doing it myself i.e two ppl to pump the clutch wasnt diffecult at all took me just over a hour or so to do it. Bit of a squeeze and does mark your wrists. Note for other other ppl would recommend wearing gloves for this one weather latex or other product.

if you want something doing properly you have to do it yourself. get a bleed kit on the cylinders bleed nipple loosen the nipple and then pump the clutch a few times making sure the brake fluid in the reservoir does not drop below min. examine the bleed kit pipe to ensure there is no bubbles (if there are keep pumping the pedal) and then tighten the bleed nipple and reomve the bleed kit. top up the reservoir and job done.

Not too difficult really. Its situated underneath where the battery is. You only need to take the battery out of the way to get better access. Its a two person job really just so someone can pump the clutch while the other can drain the fluid. The cylinder itself is only fastened with two bolts so once drained and disconnected really simple to whip out and put the new one in. Then just a case of putting

Hello im needing a new slave cylinder for my 1.2 SX ive bene looking on Ebay and they have a few on but none of them look like the one thats on my car ie. the bleed nipple is at the wrong end but some of the ads state that its for a brava 1.2 SX.

Im looking for confirmation of what i suspect after reading other threads. i drove too and from work quite happily a 75 mile round trip non-motorway - its a good fun route and plenty of changing gear and braking.

Im having trouble selecting gears especially first & reverse I have had a look at the master cylinder and can not see any signs of any leaks & have bled it with no luck the symptoms are Hard to engage gears & clashing in reverse the clutch is only just disengaging at the bottom of the pedal travel. There is no problem selecting the gears with the engine off and no sign of any clutch slippage when in

You have a hydraulic clutch so forget all about cables and adjusters because you havent got any. Some other things to consider. If the clutch bites very low then youre not getting sufficient movement to disengage the clutch. Most common problems are slave cylinder clapped. slave cylinder Are there any signs of hydraulic fluid on top of the clutch coming from the slave cylinder Do you get air present

FIAT BRAVA 182 Help Made a mess of bleeding clutch

I tried to bleed the clutch with a one man bleeding kit (the one way valve thing) with no luck so I bought an Eezibleed kit but when I connect it all up no fluid comes out of the slave cylinder. Even if I remove the cylinder no fluid comes out and there is about 15psi pressurising the system.

Are you pumping it with the eezibleed connected and slave cylinder bleeding when the master cylinders dry it can be a pain in the backside to get fluid to start flowing into it and having the eezibleed applying external pressure can solve the problem. obviously you need to have the slave bleeding to give the air somewhere to move to.

Desperate Please Help Hi all please can someone tell me where we are going wrong.. Long story but fiat Bravo 1.4 driving on Sunday and stopped at junction when all of a sudden NO GEARS WHATSOEVER had to get towed home. Clutch felt fine although a little pop sound could be heard half way. If i turn the engine off it goes into gear fine if i try to turn the engine on whilst it is in gear it wont start.

You need to be very careful how you go about bleeding the slave cylinder. Did u prime the cylinder with fresh fluid before fitting And how exactly are you bleeding it After being primed it should only take around 5 pumps of the clutch pedal do bleed out the remainder of the air in the system. If you are still having trouble after this stage it may be nessasary to loosen the bleed nipple and repeatedly

i finally found the source of my brake fluid problems... turns out that the clutch slave cylinder located just above the gearbox on my 1.6 brava has a leak of some kind. ive been told it may be just an o-ring or some kind of seal. can anyone shed any light on this before i take it to a garage and get ripped off. also its running my brake fluid down super fast cheers Russ 1.6 brava 16V Mean Green Cat Killing Machine

FIAT BRAVA 182 Bravo 1.8 Clutch help

Hello All Problem with clutch on my 1996 Bravo 1.8 HLX. When the engine is running and I dip the clutch to select a gear the gear stick is just solid and wont select anything. When the engine is off i can select a gear fine but when i start the car with the clutch pedal down then it stalls cos the gear is engaged even with the peddle down Theres no visible leaks and the fluid level is fine. Any ideas please anyone. Cheers

your clutch is not disengaging. ask an assistant to pump the clutch pedal while you watch the slave cylinder on top of the egabrox. if it is moving and there is no sign of a leak then your problem is the clutch. if it is not moving then the clutch hydraulics are the problem either the slave cylinder or master cylinder (usually slave).

Originally Posted by jug yes the punto code will give you a new blue key. use your red key to get it cut. also use the existing blue keys code to make a new blue key but again use the red key ot have it cut so that fits the door locks. next job is removing your ignition barrel and grinding the tumblers down to fit your red key (put red key in barrel then grind off all protruding tumblers so they are flush with barrel). then refit the modifed ignition swithc barrel. now your red key and both the blue keys will open all the doors and start the engine. good as new. is it only powerloss or also a misfire does it still rev as highly as before check brake fluid level if its dropped check on top of gearbox for a wet patch. a slave cylinder leak is common but easily fixed. 1. you dont need an ecu 2.

Thanks for all that mate Its powerloss and missfiring aswell and it seems to be revving just as it used to its weird how the clutch started sticking and being stiff around the same time as the missfirepowerloss but the clutch has done this before and stopped after being pumped also ive been told its most likely the throttle body or timing belt slipped but my mate said you need a special fiat tool to check the t belt is there any way around this

He then reconnected everything and the car went. He reckoned that either

FIAT BRAVA 182 Clutch operating clyinder

Hi all I have a friend in England who is trying to help me buy some parts for my 1996 brava 1400cc 12 sx manual. It has a hydraulic clutch. The prob is that I have told him that I want a clutch operating cylinder and he wants to know if it is a master cylinder or slave cylinder. The repair manual that I have down loaded refers to it as a operating cylinder but I dont know if it is a slave or a master.

Hello without getting too technical it could be that the master cylinder is actually getting stuck and pumping again releases it or else its seals have gone. I assume the brake fluid reservoir is full and that they have actually bled the system properly you will need to observe the master and slave cylinder to see whats going on. Surely if they had test driven the car properly around a built up area

FIAT BRAVA 182 1.6 16v sx...more info needed

As you can probably tell Im not really a car person or have any knowledge of them. Is there anyway of telling whether the clutch slave cylinder has seized or notany kind of test etc.. Found the cylinder and have undone to bleed valve and it was dryis this normal Car has been standing for around 9 months and now there is no feel in the clutch pedal. have also checked the reservoir and thats fine. Many thanks again for any help.

to get fluid back into the cylinder you need a brake bleed kit with a one way valve. it sticks on the slave cylinder bleed screw then you pump the clutch. try that.

you need to pressurise the brake fluid reservoir to force fluid in to the master cylinder. if youre careful and you have strong lungs you can do this with your mouth while an assistant pumps the pedal and at the same time have a brake bleed kit on the slave cylinder bleed nipple. laugh all you want the mouth method works ive used it more than once.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Clutch Pedal

My wife drives a 1998 (S Reg) brava 1.6SX. Recent she has complained of a spongy clutch pedal. In fact the clutch pedal dropped to the floor entirely on the school run last week. In this case after pulling over for a few minutes while we debated what to do we restarted the engine and were able to complete the journey. This has happened again today and is obviously a concern as the vehicle is used daily.

yes it is on top of the gearbox. best way to find it is to look under the battery tray. youll see the wet patch more than likely. if you have an assistant pump the clutch pedal youll see the slave cylinder moving on top of the gearbox. removing the battery and then the battery tray greatly improves access however it is not neccessary.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Clutch problem with 1.6 16v sx

My fiat bravo has been standing for a few months and Ive now decided to sort it out and sell it. Before it was abandomed everything on the car worked fine but as I went to reverse the car out the garage I found the clutch no longer engaged. It feels like the cable could have snapped. Can anyone tell me where abouts the clutch cablecylinder is on a 1.6 16v sx so I can investigte this problem. Many thanks

Check the hydraulic fluid reservoir first. If its full enough then pump the clutch with your foot lots and lots and see if that makes it work. If the clutch needs bleeding this can temporarily clear the hydraulics. If that fails then check under the car to see if its leaking fluid. Follow the trail back into the engine if it is. Failing this theres alot of posts on here about clutch slave cylinders that are probably worth a read...

Im assuming something has gone wrong with the clutch hydraulics (although I cant see where anything is in the engine compartment) Any ideas on what the most likely fault is

Hi Check the colour of the fluid any sign of blackness is a sign of the seals breaking up (usually slave cylinder gives more trouble than master cylinder...pop off the rubber boot on the slave for any signs of leak). In past have had a strange situation where the slave seals were knackered but the boot kept the oil in so fluid loss was minimal...(on a brava that was though). What happens if you pump
