Default Slave cylinder line removal

Welp, i've ran into a small snag. I'm gettin my 4.0 and tranny ready to swap into my 93, i'm replacing the clutch,pressure plate, and the slave cylinder, problem is, i can't disconnect the line on the slave cylinder. Says use the tool or screwdrivers and press the white plastic clip in and pull the line. Well, thereis NO white plastic piece in between the line and the slave cylinder. Short of just cutting the line off, anyone have some thoughts on how to remove it?

on my 88' i had the same problem...i ended up just removing the small pin from the master cylinder side..if you are replacing the slave you could just cut the line i suppose and get a new one with a new clip for your new slave... there are posts upon posts where people just "pop" the line free..i tried the tool and everything nothing worked. good luck.

if there is no plastic peice you should be able to fit a quick disconnect tool in there, kinda like the fuel line disconnect tool..

it has 2 c shaped collars that will fit in there

Already tried with a fuel line tool, just isn't enough room. Guess I could unbolt the slave and pull the line through the bell housing and try the fuel line tool again. If that doesn't work then I guess I'll just have to cut the line and hope I can save the one that is already in my ranger.

I would go to a junkyard and grab one off another truck.

Or look for an RBV around town that you can crawl under.......

Most of the fuel line disconnects' plastic is too thick, you may have to trim it down.

we changed the slave cylinder on my dads f150 (same slave). we couldn't get the disconnect removed so we cut the line on the slave side of the connection, and removed it that way. you need to use a hacksaw blade and a lot of patience! its a bit awkward, but saves you from buying a new slave line. once you have the transmission removed you have a bit more room to get the connector off the line.

good luck.

Well, the 4.0 and tranny are out of the truck and in the bed of my diesel so hacking the line wouldnt be too hard. But BlackBII, what do u mean take the plastic piece from another ranger? do they just sort of slip over the line? if thats the case i can take the one off my 3.0's tranny and try it.

Yeah, the plastic piece can be removed. It's not a solid circle, it has a slit in it so you can remove it.

Wow, something i did not know, hell i even looked in my Haynes manual and it didnt even say anything about being able to slide it off, then again, it never said do such and such if the clip is gone lol. Thanks! i'll probably give that a try this weekend and see if that works, i just dont wanna ruin a good line if i dont have to.
