Concentric Slave Cylinders
On modern vehicles it is becoming increasingly common that when a clutch is replaced the concentric slave cylinder (CSC) also requires replacement.
The assembly of a concentric slave cylinder is structured to allow it to operate directly in front of the clutch cover.
This new technology allows direct hydraulic load to be applied to the clutch via the master cylinder and concentric slave cylinder. As a result providing less pedal pressure, eliminating the potential loss of bearing travel caused by wear commonly associated in traditional linkage or cable type systems.
At Mr Clutch we recommend fitting a new concentric slave cylinder whenever performing a clutch replacement in vehicles where these units are used. Failure to do so may cause damage to the new clutch, resulting in expensive rework.
Advantages of CSCs:
- Lighter pedal pressures allowing a more comfortable drive
- Self adjusting system prolonging the life of your clutch
- Less moving parts which means there are less items to wear or fail.
