Replacing the Clutch master and slave with a new pre bled unit. While removing the slave from the transmission I noticed the push rod did not come out. I fished with a magnet and little claw but no look. is this a problem or what’s the easiest way to get it out? It is a 2003 Jeep Wrangler 2.4 with Manual Transmission.
You will need to get it out. If left in there it will damage something for sure. You can try removing the starter assembly to give you a bit more access. You may need to remove the bell housing if that doesn’t work. I would use an inspection mirror and a flashlight to try and see inside for it.
