156 2.0 ts, confusion over clutch slave cylinder
im getting confused now as to what type of clutch cylinders my car has and how to replace them.....
i have a 2001 156 2.0 ts sportwagon.
firstly my problem is my clutch pedal after me pushing it to the floor only returns half way to near the biting point. so im constantly on the biting point and not able to get full power and nor change gear smoothly.
i have no apparant loss of fluid from resovoir but have oil around bottom of gearbox where the clutch is.
i have therefore assumed clutch slave cylinder and gone and bought a concentric slave cylinder that apparantly needs the gearbox off to change??
since buying i have read numerous threads and posts on the internet telling me that the 2.0 ts slave cylinder can be changed by removing the battery and getting access to the top of the cylinder, some have quoted 'an easy 20 min job'.
i have had a look at this area myself on my car and i can see what looks like a clutch cylinder coming out the top of my gearbox with a metal pipe coming off with a thread on it, then what could be either a small pipe or a cable coming off this threaded metal piece going down, then into the car where my clutch pedal is...... if my missus pumps the clutch i can see this pipe/cable moving in the engine bay......
so have i bought the correct slave cylinder?? do i have to remove gearbox to change?? what is this cylinder and pipe/cable i can see?? cant i change this cylinder from under the battery??
please someone confirm i have correct symptoms of slave cylinder failure, and please confirm what this is im looking at under the battery???
