Create a new slave without copying relay log files from an existing slave

I already have a master-slave replication setup. I want to create a new slave, but due to a problem with the slave, I can not establish an SSH connection to the existing slave machine, so I can not copy the relay log files and the master.info file.
However, I can connect to slave MySQL through the workbench and stop slave replication if I want to.
I have full access to the master instance. Is there a way I can create a new slave?
I use Mariadb 5.5. Many thanks
