If memory serves me right, I seem to remember a small cylinder at your clutch fork, similar to a wheel cylinder. Take a look underneath with brake on & someone pushing the clutch pedal, you should see where it all comes together. Probably a line like a brake line running to the slave cylinder. What make's you think it needs replacing? (just curious)

Good possibility he's just low on fluid in the reservoir, but could be a leaking line or cylinder. Think same as a brake wheel cylinder, follow line from slave cylinder to reservoir & observe closely for leaks. Check level in reservoir. You'll probably have to bleed out the air when repairs are done, just the same as a brake cylinder. I'm sure it will all make sense to you once you see how it all comes together. Basically a simple system. Apply pressure to pedal, it pushes fluid to slave cylinder which in turn pushes a rod against the clutch fork assy, which disengages the clutch. Release pedal, all retracts & clutch engages. Check under dash around clutch pedal where it goes through firewall for any fluid leaks also, in case master cylinder type set-up is under there.

No.... The trans does not need removal. If I remember correctly there will be a "HORSESHOE" clip holding the slave to the bellhousing. Pop the clip out and slide the slave back. The fun comes trying to bleed it . I usually hold them upside down, with the bleed screw facing up , and wait till it drips before installation.
