Slave Cylinder Advice plz on Phase 3 JTS Spider

I've check a bunch of threads on clutch issues, and on inspection, my slave cylinder boot is busted, I have fluid leaking etc., The car's only done 40,000kms (It's an '04) but at 11 years old, these things happen I guess.

My question is - will this require the gearbox to come out and if so, do I replace the clutch at the same time?

I usually have to import parts and take it a local mechanic, due to the fantasy-prices Australian part suppliers charge ... so just want to get onto costing it up.

If you can see the slave cylinder it's 30 minutes, if you can't see it, it'll take all day.

Had mine changed by an Alfa specialist, took them less than half an hour. I should think anyone could do it, no need for a specialist. As I remember it, just the intake hose MAF to throttle valve needs removing to gain clear access.

It is on top of the gearbox, as others said 1/2 h work, if you have no special material for having the air out of the circuit you need an assistant to pump the clutch

Very easy fix. I wouldn't bother using an Alfa specialist for the job either. A decent indie is more than capable of changing a slave cylinder and you will save yourself a bit of cash too.

Just done this myself, very easy job. Once you get all the induction hoses out the way it is easy to see and get at
