Default Ford Explorer Slave cylinder Failing Constantly!!!



Well my slave cylinder went out on my explorer yesterday for the third time in two years. Funny story actually, I ended up running my own mailbox over when the clutch failed to disengage

The first was the original slave from Ford, the second was a motorcraft part that only lasted 8 months, and the now third was an Autozone special and lasted about 15 months. Every one failed in the same fashion with them springing a leak internally.

Why canít I seem to get one to last? It is a major pain in the ass to change these on the garage floor, though I can do it in about 4 or 5 hours now.

Is it possible dirt/mud could destroy these?

any insight is appreciated
