Does the nylon fluid pipe simply pull out of the cylinder? I hesitate to pull too hard in case I break something!

Hi,
You can just pull out the nylon fluid pipe, it is difficult to get out, but when you have loosened the nut, the pipe can be pulled out. I have done it a few times!

The reason that getting the pipe out is difficult is that the rubber that has sealed it in all these years (?) has become locked in to the thread and pipe.  Putting it back to seal can be a problem if not done correctly.

I have explained this more than once in the club magazine, but briefly, the hard fluid pipe will have become narrowed where it is sealed in, and this must be removed so that you have the full diameter again, plus a new rubber seal, to seal it again when you put it back.  This applies to either the slave or master cylinder end.  If you do not do this, it will leak either fluid or allow air in and become impossible to bleed properly.

The flare nut presses on a washer which squashes the new rubber seal to secure and seal the plastic pipe in to the slave or master cylinder.  So make sure you have the washer as well as the new rubber seal.  Also make sure you clean out all the old rubber seal bits first as it will break up once the pipe is removed.

It looks like this.
Be aware that there is a small metal pipe in the end of the plastic so it is not skweezed when you tighten the nut.
