Clutch master cylinder - Whats going on?
In the process of renewing brake and clutch components and this afternoon attempted to replace clutch master cylinder and hose as master cylinder is shot and original hydraulic hose is now 15yrs old.
Rotated onto back and removed two retaining nuts and the pin and washer from clutch pedal. Already have inlet plenum removed so, unscrew metal pipe from back of cylinder and cut rubber hose . .....It should be free? ......... i have tried to shift it off the two securing screws but it will not budge an inch! tried a 19mm socket on engine bulkhead to try and drift it out but nothing .
Anyone who has worked in this area will know that space is minimal and i can't get any angle to try and hook in behind so im at a loss as how to get it out? Has some previous owner super glued this into place.
