996 GT3 Clutch chatter


Recommended Posts

2004 996 GT3, 18000 mi.

I am a recent second owner with unknown tract time on vehicle. Can anyone give me an explanation as to why I am having substantial clutch chatter/vibration in reverse gear only, without any chatter in forward gears. Dealer stated needed new clutch job, $4000.00.

Thanks,

Ed

Hi Ed.... Congrats on your GT3 ownership. I am the original owner of an '04 GT3, and have several friends that do, or have owned MKII GT3s. We have ALL had issues with clutch chatter. All of us have had dealer techs evaluate them. All have been told that the chatter is not bad enough to warrant replacement.....and, really, although the chatter can be annoying, it's not really that bad (our experience). I found that I quickly learned the throttle/clutch/engagement process that avoids the chattering. Our experience, like yours, was primarily a chatter in reversing. The clutch design in the GT3 is quite 'heavy duty', as your left leg can attest....and, that probably contributes to it's tendancy to chatter. Drive, and Enjoy!

Beware of the dealer!!

Greetings Phillij,

Are you familiar with any trusted/reputable techs in the Pasadena area or do I look towards Torrance or Costa Mesa? As you have suggested I too am amenable to reputable independent tech services

Regards,

Ed
