On vehicles that have hydraulic clutches, the slave cylinder transmits pedal movements to the clutch pack. The hydraulic aspect of this system makes clutch engagement much more comfortable. Like any hydraulic system though, the corrosive brake fluid can wear out seals and cause leaking and failure. If this is the case on your car, the best solution for repair is replacing the defective part.
This replacement from Genuine BMW will get your clutch system working properly again. After a quick installation and bleeding the line, the clutch will engage fully and extend the life of those parts. A good way to be sure that you don't miss any gears when shifting.
Because you will lose fluid and need to bleed the line, pick up some extra hydraulic (brake) fluid to keep your clutch system fresh.
The easiest way to restore a better clutch feel. Simply bolt this cylinder down after attaching the hydraulic line, bleed the system, and you are done. For assistance in installation and bleeding, see the online enthusiast forums for walkthroughs and DIYs.
