The clutch release arm assists in the release of pressure from the pressure plate on the clutch disk. It should be checked for cracks, wear or bending and should be replaced when doing a clutch replacement.
You should always throw out your old throw-out bearing every time you replace your clutch disc and pressure plate. A loud squeak when the clutch pedal is pressed in can indicate that there is a problem with your throw-out bearing. This can also indicated a flywheel pilot bearing problem as well.
The clutch slave cylinder is operated by the clutch master cylinder. It assists in the movement of the clutch release arm or throw out arm. It is a good idea to replace the slave cylinder if you are replacing the master cylinder.
Hydraulic fluid is the life blood of any hydraulic system, and its primary job is to transfer power. There are varying specifics for different applications. Check your owner's manual for your make and models recommended specifications.
The advent of an adjustable clutch stop lets the driver specifically set the ideal point of reference where the clutch pedal stops just after the clutch mechanism disengages. Therefore, once set properly, the gas pedal may be applied immediately after the clutch pedal is released. This lets the driver shift with one less item to worry about, actually forcing them to become smoother. The clutch stop works on many BMWs (including the E46 models with slight modification to the clutch-sensor switch).
