Clutch pedal question


Recommended Posts

After sitting over winter, and maybe 50 miles since taking it out, the clutch pedal was sticky about 1/2 way through the release. After a bit of that, eventually the pedal would not return out fully. It would stop maybe 1/2 - 3/4 way, but I was still able to push it in and shift normally. Once at my destination I manually pulled the pedal out and it is back to full range of motion. I have done a little searching and am going to hit it with some silicon lube, but I was just wondering if it could be an indication of a bigger impending failure?

I would first try bleeding the clutch hydraulic system to make sure there is clean fluid and no air bubbles in the lines.

If that does not fix the problem, it could be a faulty slave cylinder mounted at the clutch bell housing behind the L/H/side rear wheel.

If neither of the above, the clutch itself could be at fault.

I agree its usually the slave cyclinder!located above the transmission..

So I found the problem to be a leaky connection between the line coming off of the slave, and a connector. Its synonymous with parts 14 and 12 in the 996 parts diagram (sorry I couldn't find one for the boxster). I intend to have these parts replaced, but am having a bit of difficulty locating the part # and a seller. Again, the picture is for reference only, does anyone know the part numbers and possible distributor and cost for a 98 boxster? Thank you
