Exclamation Clutch Hydraulic Line, Slave Cylinder

So as I was replacing my slave cylinder using the 101 project guide, I actually had the cast iron slave cylinder rather than the plastic one. Consequently, I have a different hydraulic line than shown in any pictures. I had to do a lot of digging on the internet to find anyone that had done something similar. I have attached pictures of the cylinder as well as a link to the other post on this forum that featured a similar issue. I cant seem to figure out how to detach the line from the current slave cylinder as it is not the plastic ring with a metal hook you can just pull out. You can see in the pictures where the bleed nipple is, and attached is still the line. Any help would be appreciated!

I also attached a picture of the new plastic one I purchased

That's just a compression fitting. Unscrew it to remove and you'd have to cut the line to use a different fitting. Not sure if it's compatible with the plastic one.

I believe you'll have to get a new line from a 98+ boxster to use with the plastic slave cylinder. You only need the back section as the new and old style connect at the same spot by the back left wheel

Do you happen to know the part number, or where I could get one?

Might be:


But the better course of action is probably to buy the correct slave cylinder for your car.
