RalliTEK Clutch Master Cylinder Brace - WRX & STI 2008-2014 / Impreza 2008-2011

RTEK-100009

New

RalliTEK

This product bridges a connection from the pitch stop mount location over to the OE clutch master cylinder to eliminate movement in the clutch pedal and to provide increased pedal sensitivity and strength.

 

The 2008-2014 Impreza models are notorious for firewall failure issues. The number of spot welds combined with the thickness of the sheet metal Subaru used leads to flex in the firewall that over time will inevitably lead to structural failure and squeaky pedal noises. The repair is expensive and requires pulling the dash and pedal assembly in order to re-weld and reinforce.

RalliTEK developed this brace in order to help prevent this common failure. Forces from the clutch pedal assembly are transferred by the brace evenly to the STRONGEST parts of the pitch stop mounting structure. In order to maximize the rigidity of the brace, steel was used for the entire construction of the brace. Clutch pedal feel is also more solid especially with aftermarket clutch kits with heavier pressure plate clamping force. As with most RalliTEK products these braces are manufactured locally in the Pacific Northwest USA! Quality of materials and manufacturing processes we’ve always been proud to support. 

 

In fact, this brace is made of 1/4" thick mild steel.

 

Unlike the competition, because of its unique 2 piece design and slotted holes, installation is easy and does not require a lot of technical skills or tools. Watch our installation video and see for yourself!

 

Due to the nature of this manufacturer failure, the brace may require additional shimming in some very rare cases. Please contact RalliTEK for further assistance if this occurs. This product is intended to maintain, and will not FIX an already damaged firewall.

Instructional Video is decietfull but good brace

The braces a pretty good quality and seems to do the trick. Only thing I didn’t like is the instructional video from Rallitech is very deceiving! The video does not give you enough information on how to properly install this plus it makes it look a lot easier than it actually is! So if you’re looking to buy this product do not rely on instructional video have it professionally done or if you have enough knowledge and mechanical skills you should be able to figure it out. They tell you to bend the clutch master cylinder line to slip the brace past but it doesn’t mention that you have to loosen up a bold on the lines to be able to do that.

    Squeaky clutch pedal FIXED (2011 WRX)

    This brace assembly worked great and was pretty easy to install. Prior to installation my mechanic recommended this a clutch cylinder brace to prevent firewall flex and preventing the spot welds to pop out. He also recommended this part to help get rid the of squeaky clutch pedal noise. (A sound that seemed like it was coming from inside, near the clutch pedal.)

    Well this cylinder brace fixed the noise entirely, and I’m sure it will be a great product to serve it’s purpose and help preventive future issues.
    THANKS!

      Study & Well Made

      Shipped quick via USPS and the install video really helped. Thankfully, I installed this before I had any firewall issues, so it fit like a charm. Please note, if your firewall is already damaged, this item may not fit correctly. It is preventive, not a cure!
