Any problems with clutch in 3.4


Recommended Posts

Have noticed some clutch related problems happening with the 3.4 Cayman and was wondering if this has happened with the Boxster. Apparently it is an assembly issue with the bolt tightening. Did not know if the Boxster was assembled in the same place/manner and if the 3.4 Boxster owners should be aware of the potential problem.

Both cars are fabricated in Finland. Have you been told of a TSB in relation to the fault? First i've heard of it TBH.

Have not seen anything on a TSB however, there is a good bit on caymanclub.net on the issues under problems or complaints.

Just curious because am getting close to a purchase and want to be sure it is not a large problem. It seems that when spotted, PCA has been willing to fix the problem but I have not determined if they want to go so far as a TSB at this point. Also, as with any problem you never know just how prevelent it is by reading posts. Have only seen it on Caymans but since they have had the 3.4 longer it may be too soon to tell yet for the Boxster. Seems to be a lack of torque on the bolts but can effect the clutch, flywheel etc.

Hello

Only some earlier Cayman S (MY 006 ) have got this problem.

Boxster S recieved only from MY 007 the 3,4 l. engine, all with this problem fixed.

The face lift is expected for MY 008 ( perchance with direct fuel injection ??? )

Best Regards.
