STEP 2: Remove (1) bolt that supports the intake tube to the driver side frame rail if equipped.



STEP 3: Remove the intake tube from the fire wall by gently pulling towards the front of vehicle, then place to the side.



STEP 4: Place a clean towel under the hydraulic clutch line to catch any fluid during the removal process.


STEP 5: Using a small pick, gently pull the hydraulic hose retaining clip outboard to release the hose.





STEP 6: Gently pull the hydraulic hose out of the clutch cylinder housing.





STEP 7: Locate the lower hydraulic hose connection from the underside of vehicle on the driver side of the transmission. Using a small pick, gently pull the hydraulic hose retaining clip outboard to release the hose.





STEP 8: Gently pull the hydraulic hose out of the transmission elbow.



STEP 9: From the topside of the vehicle, carefully feed the hydraulic clutch line out of the vehicle.




STEP 10: Feed the new hydraulic clutch line under the existing brake lines and down along the side of the transmission housing. Correct orientation will have the solid portion of the line at the top side of vehicle with the flexible steel braiding next to the transmission housing.



STEP 11: Push the hydraulic hose retaining clip back into the housing.

STEP 20: Using a suitable bleeder kit and a vacuum pump, install the rubber stopper in the reservoir opening. Make sure the rubber stopper has a tight fit.


STEP 21: Holding the rubber stopper in place, operate the vacuum pump to 15-20 inches of vacuum. Hold the vacuum for 1 minute, then quickly relieve the vacuum. Remove the special tools.


STEP 22: Check the fluid level of the reservoir. Fill the reservoir with the specified fluid to the MAX mark. Install the reservoir cap.


STEP 23: Depress and release the clutch pedal 10 to 12 times or until clutch pedal effort is consistent and positive at top of clutch pedal travel.


STEP 24: Repeat Steps 20, 21 and 22 two additional times or until clutch pedal effort is consistent and positive at top of clutch pedal travel.


STEP 25: Check the fluid level of the reservoir. Add fluid as necessary. Test the clutch system for normal operation.
