    clutch master cylinder

    How difficult is it...seriously...to get to, take out, reinstall, and bleed the master cylinder. I looked under the hood yesterday and could barely see the damn thing and im thinking that its going to be a nightmare to get to to do the drill mod.

    Im an okay shadetree mechanic...brakes, filters, oil changes, electronics, tune ups, etc. But im a big dude and i dont know how im going to get my hands down there to get to this thing. I did turn my turn signal cancel cam and return springs yesterday for the first time ever in about 2 hrs if thats any indication.

    Wasn't too bad for me, but I have smaller hands. When you get ready to do the install it is a lot easier if you have a second person. One to hold it in place and one to start the bolts on the inside.

    If you are just doing the drill mod, you should be able to just take the line from the master to the slave off. You shouldn't have to remove the master.

    are the bolts that hold the master cylinder to the firewall in the engine compartment or down by the pedal in the passenger compartment? if they're in the passenger compartment then i can see this being a lot easier to do than if they're in the engine bay.

    It has been years since I did mine. But if I remember right the master has studs or bolts and the nuts go on from inside. I just remember having my son start bolts/nuts while I held the master in place. He was very young and having problems getting them started.
