Hydraulic clutch mechanism

To transmit the pedal movement, a hydraulic clutch mechanism uses a hydraulic line instead of a mechanical connection (eg: a Bowden cable).

A piston on the master cylinder at the pedal transmits the pressure through a fluid to the piston of the slave cylinder at the clutch operation on the transmission.

Using the hydraulic clutch mechanism, clutch wear is automatically compensated for.
