Clutch on 987S

Recommended Posts

Having covered just 30,000 miles the clutch on my 987s requires replacement. Having bought the car second hand its always hit and miss as to the condition of wearing parts, but I'm surprised its gone this soon (i've never tracked or raced the car). Does anyone out there know who makes the original clutches for the 987 with 6 speed gearboxes. Having looked at the parts catalogue from porsche it's a totally different beast to that fitted to the 986 S and the 2.7 987. Obviously i'd prefer to have an OEM clutch from porsche fitted , but I am also considering a sachs performance item , suggested to be similar to OEM to drive but harder wearing. Any information or advice greatly appreciated. By the way , the car is still under warranty but I beleive clutches are not covered.

I see that the 987S has it's own part numbers that are not 986 part numbers.

Sachs made the 986 clutch. Don't know if that changed for the 987S. Maybe your parts department will let you look at one and see what name is one it.

I do not know any 987 owners that have had to replace the clutch already.

Thanks for the reply. I am re assured then about getting a Sachs unit or upgrade as being suitable quality for the car. Do you have any idea as to the "normal" life of a clutch, and would you advise I get the RMS changed or leave it if it isn't leaking? I will try and press both the supplying dealer and Sachs about part payment for replacing the unit mainly becuase 30k miles seems really far too early.
