997S Clutch Replacement Question

Recommended Posts

The clutch in my 997S is being replaced due to chatter; the car has had this problem since new.

My question is there be anything I should be aware of for this procedure ie; flywheel replacement, proper torquing specs for the clutch plate bolts to stop the slight buzz in the pedal at higher rpms (the factory let out cars out w/o these being properly trq'd), any areas prone to leaks after the replacement etc...etc?

Not sure what mileage you have on your car but when my clutch was replaced on my 987 S boxster , I was advised its common to have the dual mass flywheel replaced also. The flywheels have a tendency to lose the spring return tension making them rattle and give a lag when taking up drive or throttle is cut. My flywheel was replaced for this reason , not that it had any surface damage or signs of overtemperature having covered only 29,ooo miles. You may for this reason wish to consider a performance clutch and single mass , lighter flywheel , while the job is being done.
