where to buy trans drain tool & cluth bleed questi

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the leads on the Motive brake bleeder & the very helpful DIY faq here. Even so, I still have a couple questions:

Where can I order the tool needed to drain the tranny? (other than the dealer.....if they are even a source). Any tips on how to get the new oil into the tranny? Just pump it in with a Motive bleeder?........its not like you can just pour it in like my Ford truck.

Also, when bleeding the clutch........what is the source of its fluid? Does the brake fluid resevoir share its fluid with the clutch? I'd like to totally purge & replace all the existing fluid in both systems.

BTW, its on a 2000 996 cab.

The brakes and clutch have the same reservoir. Ignore the Motive instructions that say to clamp off a vent tube since we do not have one. You can get a plastic gear oil pump at any auto parts place. Someone will have to help you with the tool to remove the drain and fill plugs since I think it is different on my 5 speed Boxster. Jeff
