    Default Slave cylinder fail fail fail !!!

    Hey all!
    So I have a 2010 sport manual with the bigger block
    I blew through a clutch over the first year,
    Replaced it (at a reputable shop)
    A couple years go by and the slave cylinder goes.
    Now it rejected 3 doorman replacement parts , breaking the parts at the function part test...
    The suggestion has been to replace or at least tear down the whole system, clutch, trans, etc, I dunno...
    What are your thoughts on this?

    Note: it's not a sales pressure oriented situation...
    And I have time on my side and safe storage for free.
    I can do some work but not really confidently
    I don't have parts yet aside from release bearing , and the last slave cylinder has not yet been ruined.

    What brand slave cylinder were you using as a replacement? Dorman? If so you may want to check to see if OEM has a more robust replacement.

    If you go on rockauto a great example of this is the 2012 Mazdaspeed3 slave cylinder compared to the 2007 Mazdaspeed6. The MS6 has a metal piston where the MS3 has a plastic one.

    when you replace the slave cylinder, you'll also want to replace the master cylinder... gunk from the master cylinder will work its way into the slave cylinder and wearing out the seal

    so, when you replace one, you always want to replace both... never be cheap... do it right the first time, especially using the right parts (get OEM... OEM = mazda, nothing else)
    2005 Mazda3 SP23 hatchback (auto)
    2016 Mazda3 Sport GT (auto)

    Dorman is decent. I have a Dorman VVT solenoid running solid north of 400hp for a while. OEM for some things, not all.

    I agree about replacing other components related to the clutch line assembly.

    if I wanted to/forced to get aftermarket (master/slave cylinders), I'd get beck arnley or tokico only... the beck arnley could be reboxed OEM parts, and tokico is an OEM supplier to some automakers, such as nissan
