AX4 slave cylinder/throwout bearing with locking clips?

Recommended Posts

I was looking at the slave cylinder on my 88 AX4 and noticed some plastic locking clips where you can compress the slave cylinder and lock it in that position? Is that for new build shipping or is there some special procedure for installation? Both the clutch and slave cylinder look brand new so they are going back in.

You are supposed to leave it compressed and clipped when installing, and when bleeding. After the system has been bled, when you first step on the clutch the clips will pop off and things will (ideally) work normally. Don't forget to recheck the fluid level after the clips pop off.
