2004 Pontiac GTO Slave cylinder

I have been searching for a repair manual or someone that might know the details on how to change the slave cylinder myself on the '04 GTO, but keep hitting a dead end. Mechanics want to charge an arm and a leg to fix it, but I'd rather do it myself. Can anyone help?

So you're sure you want to drop the trans yourself?

Below are links that help you out as far as dropping the trans and using a F-body slave which is a lot cheaper than the GTO slave. Good luck.

Yes I've (mostly watched) done this and its very time consuming, luckily I have 2 GM employed mechanics as best friends from college so they done mine for free, parts were still like $425(at cost) for slave cylinder and master cylinder. There was a lot of stuff that came out of my car just to have the space to work. And mine busted on day 3 of ownership, how do you think I felt!!! Good luck!

If you do it get a friend and a Harbor Freight tranny jack. It's not an impossible job but you'll need some time, a bunch of long extensions and some patience and it can be done. The first time I changed my clutch it took 9 hrs. The last time it was 5.
