Re: Multipla 1.9 JTD 2001 Clutch Slave Cylinder replacement

The plastic looks fine without any painting.

You will need something to scrape the gunge when it is softened , I used old sharpened lolly sticks and bamboo skewers to get into awkward bits.

Try some meths if you have any, that would probably work too but smells worse than the girly stuff.

Acetone nail polish remover works fine , that's what I used.
I didn't repaint the plastic either was just glad it wasn't sticky

Re: Multipla 1.9 JTD 2001 Clutch Slave Cylinder replacement

Back to the thread title...

I've splashed out on the Sealey VS820 Brake & Clutch Bleeding System (see pic).
Haven't used it for real yet but on first inspection it looks the canine's cohones. Much higher build quality than the 20 Sealey bleeder.

I have tested pumping up the pressure - it took 100 pumps over 85 seconds to get to 20 psi which is more than enough to bleed the clutch.

Advantages:
- Solid high quality build (garage quality?)
- No spare tyre needed, so only one connection needed - to car fluid reservoir
- Proper high quality push fit air connector to connect to high quality reservoir cap adapter
- Pressure gauge incorporated
- Supplied 42mm reservoir cap fits the Multipla (big bonus)
- No crap needle valve to stick on you
- 2.5L fluid reservoir

Disadvantages
- At least twice the cost of the cheaper Sealey bleeder
- It's big!
- Nothing else

My clutch is still OK after bleeding the other day, just a little sticky, so I think I'll test the new bleeder for real next week to see if I can get any improvement.

Re: Multipla 1.9 JTD 2001 Clutch Slave Cylinder replacement

Thanks for the tips on the gloopy rubber dash trim,
Finally started cleaning up the rubber crud after getting the "Asda acetone free nail polish remover". Coming along nicely. As you say lots of rags to take the sludge away.
Thanks jackwhoo thanked for this post

Re: Multipla 1.9 JTD 2001 Clutch Slave Cylinder replacement

Did bleed on mk2 multipla recently. Pretty much the same as mk1 which is pain.

Why - It was hard to get first and reverse on occasion and pedal needed pumping. Bite point has now moved from nearly fully out to about half way and feels much better too - presumably this was the air/slop in the tubing.

Procedure seemed same but to get air box off you have to remove 4 bolts and take out silly metal plate. Slave cylinder had clip to activate bleed nipple which was different too to the mk1.

I went for the nipple on the bulkhead first but cocked up.
With pressure bleeder on reservoir and flowing the spanner fell off the 8mm nipple and fluid went everywhere ... naughty word naughty word.

Air in system ... much worse, pedal not coming back.

There was a clip thing on bottom bleed nipple on the slave cylinder.
You lift the clip, then slid the pipe off the fitting say 5 mm and then liquid comes out of bleed nipple. Can do with you hand and no tools. It confused me at first and had to read up on it. You have to make sure pipe pushed back on and clip slides easily back in its slot.
(MK 1 original slave cylinder may be same.)

Once air looks out, work the slave cylinder to make sure none is in the body.

Has same small cylinder and crap 8mm bleed nipple on bulkhead at the back of the engine. Pain to get to and I could not get a tube on the bleed nipple.

I did not jack up car at all.

I wonder if it is easier from underneath ... to get access to bulkhead and slave

It may also be better to bleed backwards pushing fluid from low point but I do not have the kit for this - oil can with flexible tube. This may mean you do not have to bleed the bulkhead nipple ???

Re: Multipla 1.9 JTD 2001 Clutch Slave Cylinder replacement

What is the common cause of all the noise and vibration from the auxiliary belt tensioner? Recently changed mine and it quietened a bit, then one way clutch on the alternator is seized if it actually is one - does this make so much difference? The crankdamper looks ok and had been welded solid on the original engine and I can remember hearing any unusual noises, the car has recently had a new Luk clutch and DMF.
