Re: slave cylinder just went south

I had a reply about parts entered when I looked closely at your post. Check out independent shops in your area. Search the web. There may be a facility that employs a BMW tech. If you want to undertake the job yourself, there's lots of knowledge here. Sounds like a tech session might be in order.

It is not that difficult to replace the clutch and slave cylinder. I did my 01LT this past winter. See and my previous posts re disassembly and assembly. Clymer manual is a must as well as the Main Seal Replacement writeup (Kenny Crawford), the Weep Hole Drilling Procedure (Kevin Cooke) and the Weep Hole video (John Zeiler), all available on this site.

PM me if you need more information.

Are you sure the clutch is bad too? You don't necessarily have to do it if the slave failed but didn't contaminate the plates.
