Having problems with your 1999 Subaru Legacy ?

The clutch pedal on my 1999 liberty (legacy) 2.0 wagon has an intermittent problem that occurs after driving for a while (roughly 10 minutes). the pedal loses nearly all feel and it appears that about 80% of the travel of the clutch pedal does nothing and the final 20% does all the work. very hard to explain since it doesn't happen all the time. I'm thinking a seal in the hydraulic system might be faulty and allowing fluid to bypass the piston when the system gets some heat in it howe

Hello, Not really well versed in your brand. I know that some clutch assist cylinders have a detailed method to change the fluid. There are probably some specs for the pressure coming out of the system hoses which will tell if the seals are bypassed. These take gauges and time to run the tests and may cost more than the part is worth.

You may have added the fluid from the top. You could draw the fluid from the bottom hoses and the vacuum would allow you to reattach the lower hose without a significant fluid loss. Or the Dealer may have power bleed equipment similar to what is used on brakes.

You may just need to adjust the clutch to account for wear and the hydraulic assist would not need to travel so far to work.

It would be good to ask a Dealer how they do it. You might find out more with a different Websearch using hydraulic clutch topics.

I hope my info has helped and would like to know what you found out.
