Clutch Party


Recommended Posts

Hi all

After reading the extremely helpful article on replacing the clutch in the Boxster, I'm ready to do mine. However, I'm missing a few things. First thing I can think of is a lift. Then there's the alignment and other specialty tools. Sure, I have a set of ratchets and some torque wrenches, but that's really not enough. The biggest thing I'm missing is experience. Having never replaced a clutch in anything, I could really use an experienced set of eyes to help out.

Is there anyone in the DC area who would be willing to help out? I'd like to get it done tomorrow so I can make it to the track Sunday. Yeah, I know, short notice sucks. Sorry about that.

-Michael

This is how I did mine. Drove the car over to RennShop and paid $800 for the clutch kit and labor. This is a new independent shop near my office owned by a guy who use to work at local dealerships. Dealership wanted $1,850.

In my younger days I have replaced clutches myself on my driveway, but I did not look forward to doing it on a Boxster. Too old to be laying on my back under a car for hours.

I'd love to head over to RennShop, but I don't think my clutch can handle the 3000 mile trip, especially across the Rockies. :)

I found someone to do it for me. I bought the clutch from SPEC and it arrived today. There's a shop close by that'll do it for 6 hours labor. If I get my wish and move to Cupertino or San Jose, I'll certainly check out RennShop.
