Clutch Issues with 2010 Boxster

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a 2010 CPO Boxster and too often when I try to start it, it prompts me with a warning that I need to depress the clutch. Well, if I were to depress the clutch pedal any further, I would have to drive it through the floor pans! I have tried various methods including taking the key out completely, changing gears, putting into neutral and even rolling the car a bit before trying again. Is this a common issue that I need to take into the dealer and have it adjusted? Just not sure if there is a secret way of starting this thing that I have yet to discover. Thanks in advance.

Check, in first place, if there is no carpet in the way between the pedal and the floor, there can be no complete pedal stroke performed. If not, a switch problem/adjustment could be the culprit.

Great point. Nothing underneath it. I think it's off to the shop.

I have had the clutch micro-switch replace twice in the last year. Pushing the clutch all the way to the floor seems to cause the switch to fail rather quickly. If you slowly press the clucth in you will hear a click. That is as far was you need to go. Any more and you are just compressing the switch. I have been told you can simply pry the contact back but have not tried this as it was under warranty and they just replaced it no questions asked. Good Luck

The failure of the 'Clutch Interlock Switch' is becoming a more common fault. I also had this fail on my 2008 Boxster S. The good news it is a simple switch replacement and the switch went intermittent rather than totally failing so I was able to get to a dealer.
