Just installed a new clutch on my 99 Formula. Trying to re connect the hydraulic line to the new slave cylinder assembly. Obviously this is a quick disconnect fitting, but it is eating my lunch! Anybody know any neat tricks to make it work? Am I the only one that ever had trouble with this???

Did you install the slave cylinder into the transmission first? If so, then you connect the line by pushing the quick connect fitting on, and then pull it back.

I installed the slave cylinder in the transmission first. Unfortunately when I push the connection into the fitting, it just slides back out. The fitting seems to be bottoming out, before the wire retainer has a chance to click into place.

As it turns out, when something that is so simple becomes such a pain in the rear...maybe you have a faulty part. I pulled the tranny for the second time, removed the slave cylinder, installed another new one, and voila! one little push and a click and this disaster is OVER.
