Does the master slave cylinder need welding

Ordered a nice new master salve cylinder.
Had a read of a nice post on here about getting access to the old one and bleeding.

Sun out, tools ready

But after removing the air piping blocking access I noticed the original master cylinder is welded into a harness. Images added.

The harness did not look easy to remove either.

Anyone changed theirs and do I have to get welding?

Hi, that is the Slave and not the master and it should be bolted with two screws onto the top of the gearbox. If someone has welded it to the gearbox then they need to be shot!

Oops just realised yours is a V6.

Look closely at the base of rubber boot and there should be a large circlip that holds it in place. the bracket on mine looked the same as yours.When you have removed circlip and pipe union with some twisting and swearing you should be able to remove the slave from the tube on bracket.The hardest part is refitting circlip when new slave is installed
