rval_1999 replied to rval_1999's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Well the shop has told me it was just a bad clutch and needs to be replaced.....I am skeptical given the "sudden-ness" of the failure. They will give me the old part....I am just worried that I will have a similar problem in the future.....just venting.
rval_1999 replied to rval_1999's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Any suggestion on where to get "flat bottom" oval tips that will fit a 99 C2? Or any other alternative BAD A$$ tips I might like (standard oval is too plain for me!)
rval_1999 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Is there any reason to believe that 02+ exhaust tips will not fit on a 99 C2? I like those oval with flat bottom tips and was thinking about adding them to my car. I have been advised that there may be an alignment issue with the rear bumper?? ANy advice? Also, any pics of your tips (note the spelling!) would be appreciated, listing the Brand/cost if possible.
rval_1999 replied to rval_1999's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)It seems that the concensus is that a bad actuator arm is the likely culprit. The return spring is intact and seems to be operational. Was wondering if it could be the slave cylinder because it is my understanding that that causes the clutch to return hydrolically (sp)? I will find out for sure tommorrow, just wanted to know what I am getting myself into. I have a warranty (3rd party) that will pay for everything except a bad clutch friction plate/pressure plate. I would love for them to pick up the tab on a covered repair, maybe I will consider paying extra to replace the clutch kit if it is needed.
rval_1999 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)My 1999 C2 with 48K miles (6-Speed) has always had a firm clutch pedal (ie- substantial effort to depress the pedal compared to a BMW 3-series, for instance) for the 30K miles that I have owned it. I dont abuse the clutch and have never had any clutch slippage. The other day I was driving to work and the car was normal until about 5 minutes into my drive. When I pushed the clutch pedal to shift it required SUBSTANTIALLY less effort to depress and did not return quickly to its default position. It was kind of "mushy" with almost no "springback". I continued driving the car noticing that the pedal requires much less effort than usual, and that the clutch did not want to "catch" affirmatively. I can drive the car with minimum slip, however, a quick increase in rpm's results in slippage. It seems to me as if the clutch plate is not being fully "pressed" against the flywheel. Clutch/brake fluid level is normal. Its going to the shop on Tuesday but I thought I might get some input from RennTech. Also, I have searched this topic to death before posting. Thanks.
