I have split the accumulator in half to found out what can fail in this simple reservoir. The rubber seems to be of a good quality but in my case it split at the joint between the top bell portion and the base. It is a bladder type accumulator and I guess there was previously pressure on the other side of this bladder but before cutting it in half I have drill a small hole to release the pressure and nothing came out so I am sure the accu was at fault in my case...On aircraft accumulator you can recharge the nitrogen side but as soon you open the pressure valve and you got hydraulic comming out you know the bladder failed....

The bell is cut in half and I also cut the bladder or diaphram.

Now you see my failure on the joint portion the rubber is completely off at the base or the split and cut at several places...Weaken by the hydraulic ??? May be...

Excuse me if this is posted in an inappropriate spot. (New here.)

I would like to find out what the probable causes of the clutch pedal on my 996 Turbo coupe not returning smoothly from floor. Car shifts fine. Anecdotally problem seems related to car sitting for a period of time (a few days to a few weeks). Recently after an hour of interstate travel had to pull pedal up with foot. I notice no low fluid levels.

Either a bad accumulator or leaking slave cylinder.

DO a search here for the test for the accumulator.
