    Hi all. A friend has asked me to change the slave cylinder on his 2.4 puma. I’m fairly confident with the technical side, but I am wondering how long a job like this is likely to take me. (As long as it all goes to plan). Does anyone on here have any experience with doing this. Also are there any tips/tricks you would be willing to share that could make the job easier. (Other than don’t try it at home)
    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Ollie.

    Why are you going to take the transmission out just to change the slave cylinder.
    Are they different on the Puma to the normal type on the outside of the bell housing. ?.

    The manual states the transmission must be removed to gain access to the bell housing where the slave cylinder is located.

    Nope. Last time I took a cog box out was in 1978 on a Morris 1000.

    If you need it I can attach pages from the workshop manual - about 10 pages - detailing the removal.

    Well they made that easy didn't they. Might have been easier on a transit van but not on a defender.

    I have changed one, but the gearbox was already out of the vehicle. It’s held on with 3 torx bolts. There is a plastic “tube/adaptor” that goes through the side of the gearbox, this also needs removing. They are connected together with a spring clip. Make sure the O rings are in good condition when you rebuild it all.
