Hello everyone

Got another question for all you folks that are far more knowledgable than us newbies. Has anyone changed their master cylinder and if so was it a tough job and any tips on doing it.


Thanks everyone for always being so much help.

Easy!

Just follow the instructions provided with the replacement unit. You wil want to bench bleed it. Put plenty of protective covers on the fender as the brake fluid will damage the paint.

Get some high quality tubing wrenches for getting the lines off. However, if they won't budge, or act like they are going to round off on the edges, don't be afraid to use a pair of high quality vice grips to get the lines to unscrew from the old master cylinder.
