    most efficient way of replacing clutch master?

    Soon after replacing the clutch slave cylinder the clutch master called it quits. Just need a play by play on the best way to replace one.

    Unbolt it, bench bleed the new one. Install the new one. Hope for the best.... but probably have to bleed the system anyways.

    unbolt the brake booster from under the dash inside the firewall. it's held on with 4x 12mm nuts. (you'll need a 6-12" extension and deep socket) disconnect the brake clevis from the pedal, unbolt the proportioning valve underneath the brake MC and pull the booster forward until the studs are completely exposed. you do not need to disconnect any of the brake lines.

    undo the line nut on the clutch MC (you'll need 10mm line/flare nut wrench), undo the clevis on the MC to the pedal, and unbolt it from under the dash and under the hood. remove.

    bench bleed a new one, and install. installation is reverse of removal. bleed it and have fun.

    I cut the stud as described in this thread. Gives you just enough room to get the nut off from behind the brake booster without actually having to remove it. Saves you some trouble, but it is a tight space to work in. Good luck

    takes less time to unbolt the booster than it does for me to cut the stud and fish a nut back onto the stud after.

    Attach 4 ratchet extensions and a couple universal joints. Easier than reaching up there.

    What does won't take a gear mean? Clutch won't disengage, or clutch won't engage?

    Pedal adjustment or bleeding.
