Unhappy 06 Forenza clutch slave cylinder...

I'm thinking this needs to be replaced, i can shift into gear and the clutch engages itself with the pedal floored, plus it is locking up in gear... Has anyone replaced this, the ones I have replaced on other cars bolt on the outside of the trans or have that clip you pry out then the whole cylinder comes out, this guy i talk to at my local dealer said you have to drop the whole trans out to replace, it sounds like bs, and where the line from master feeds in it looks like the assembly is held with a clip, any ideas?

If you have a soggy clutch peddle and it seems difficult to change gears, they your slave is probably leaking. Are you loosing brake fluid? (clutch and brakes are run off the same reservoir).

It is true what they told you..... the transmission has to be removed to access the internal slave. Its a PITA, but it is the only way. I've had 2 of them fail on me. I have pics too if you want.

Just checked it, that sucks you threw that slave out like that, the pics help give me an idea of how much work we have to do, the weird part is that my 06 forenza only has 47000 on it, I would think i should get more miles out of that slave, but it was in an accident jan 08 and we drive it hard sometimes, oh well....

Gear?

Actually, I have gone through and cleaned up the master cylinder reservoir, and on closer inspection it appears that the quartered off section for the slave feed has no fluid just air in that section, how the heck did that happen I don't know but i'm going to try and bleed it and see what happens...

Exclamation Smells like a recall?

My 06 Forenza has been awesome .... except that at 79,000 miles - easy on the clutch and most highway my clutch slave has also failed. It did this on I-5, downtown Seattle in rush hour traffic. I'm currently having to put in about 3-4 oz of brake fluid everytime I go somewhere. Leaking like a sive and usually I end up speed shifting to get where I'm going. Closest dealer is 120 miles away. NO Manual available. No part available at any local parts dealers. Guess I'll have to trust an online parts source and "wing it" to get it replaced. Just did this 2 weeks ago on my son's 91 Ford Explorer - Had to pull the transmission on that as well. Really sucks!

I know that my warranty does not cover the clutch (normal wear and tear stuff). Looking at posts all over the net I'd say that this clutch slave in the 06 Forenza is just a crappy part that is really leaving a bad taste in many owners mouths and wallets. Noting the lack of support for this problem that seems to be becoming pandemic, I'm pretty sure that our next vehicle will not be a Suzuki. Too bad, other than this I really like my auto - we are needing a 4x4 however and I can't risk being stranded like this in the future. Again, too bad since it looks like the new line of 4x4's from Suzuki are pretty darn nice.

I think this just happened to me, I changed the rear brake pads less than a week ago. For the past two days the transmission had been acting funny, it was sometimes difficult to shift into gear. Today on the way to work I was having trouble shifting, I had to pull off with my hazard lights on because I couldn't get out of neutral. I parked at work and couldn't get in to any gear when I wanted to leave. I laid on the floor and was looking to see if something had broke, I was able to push the clutch pedal in using 1 finger, absolutely no resistance. I had to bum a ride home and my car still sits in the parking lot. Any comments or ideas would be great...

Check the brake fluid reservoir level... there is a little subsection inside the main reservoir that is specifically for the clutch.. if that is abnormally low then you have a external leak somewhere in the master or slave. Most commonly would be the slave leaking externally which means the transmission has to come out to change it. If fluid level is normal, you probably have an internal leak in the master cylinder (I've had this happen twice). The seals inside just fail and it can't build pressure any more.

I just got a break at work (that's where my car is stuck) I looked at the brake fluid, it is all gone. Ill look and reply more when I get off work. I wonder if it really is my clutch, I just changed my rear pad, which were completely gone on the passenger side... the brake cable is stuck, the brake is always engaged.

I took off my wheel to check out my brake, everything looked alright. I started checking under the hood, I followed the shifter arm to the transmission and found that it was covered in that orange fluid shown in the pictures. I don't have the time, ability or money to repair the car, but absolutely need transportation. I live in Delaware, OH. Should I call a private mechanic, or a dealership? Any help/guidance to help me get this fixed is extremely appreciated.
