For some reason I can not get the quick disconnect to stay in the slave cylinder. every time I press the clutch in it pops out just enough to disconnect.
I undid the bleeder valve to let out pressure and then connected it. Still did not work. It will bleed when the bleeder is open, but when
I tighten it up. POP goes the braided line right out of the slave.
can some one on here please help me.

you must remove the transmission, two bolts hold the slave on the front of the trans, and be sure to disconnect the hydrolic line ( no easy task)

Transmission doesn't have to be removed to install/remove the quick disconnect fitting for the slave cylinder.

Sounds to me like the fitting might be gummed up or have dirt in it, causing it to not connect onto the slave cylinder fitting all the way. Check the end of the braided line for any debris, and use a screwdriver to push in on the fitting and ensure that it retracts into the line fully. If it doesn't, its either dirty or broken, so try cleaning it out with some brake fluid or brake cleaner.

It can be a real ***** to get that line on, sometimes it just won't connect all the way, you really have to play with it. Even if you hear the "click", that is no guarantee that its fully connected, you have to just keep pushing it on and pulling back to make sure its fully seated. If you can pull it off by hand, you know its not all the way on.

Have either the slave cylinder or line been replaced, or are they both original??
