    Rounded Clutch Slave Banjo Nut

    Hey everyone. I was trying to replace my stock clutch slave cyclinder with an MPL one, and the banjo nut was on so tight I ended up rounding it trying to remove it. Does anyone know the size and where I can order a new one? Also, is it normal for this to be so hard to take off? My spanner was actually starting to bend with the force (counter clockwise)! I will give it another go with some WD-40 and vice-grips to get it off, but need a replacement first. Thanks in advance for any help!

    oh bugger, it must have seized in. I'd try release oils and maybe a little bit of heat if your not going to be using the slave again.

    If all else fails carefully cut it off just abouve the top compression washer and fit a new one in the new slave.

    I might have one somewhere, i'm going to the doctors in a bit, i'll look for you whne I get home
