warranty ???

My slave cylinder went out at 32,000.The dealer fixed the truck.But is charging me $235 for the clutch saying its a wear item.Shouldn't this be covered by the warrantry? The cluth had to be replaced because of the slave cylinder?

the clutch is a wear item just like the brake pads. and if you have gone through all the work of taking the trans out to do the slave might as well do the clutch while your there. because just your luck the clutch disk will wear out and then you chew the preasure plate and flywheel up and cost WAY more.

thats how i see it anyways.

Yeah, you really only want to go up into there once. With the crappy plastic Ranger slaves when they go, they go. Nothing like brake fluid on EVERYTHING. Even though it makes sense that it SHOULD be under warranty because it needs to be replaced because of a damaged warranted part......it's not. They have you in a catch 22 for sure. Did they install a new clutch kit and machine your flywheel?? All that should be done as well. Don't forget to replace that pilot bearing too........or you'll be hearing that "dirty tape player heads" sound.
