Small puncture in Clutch Line


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Yesterday my clutch stuck to the floor and I had to have the car towed. Jack the car up and there was a leak in the clutch line right under the driver side. The line extends up into the right wheel well. Just a few questions. Is this line difficult to replace? Should I bleed the entire system again?? (Hope not :unsure:) The fluid in the reservoir was just below minimum...Any help or input would be appreciated. Thanks!

You should only need to bleed the clutch. Although the clutch shares the brake fluid reservoir, for safety reasons the take-off pipe for the clutch is higher up the reservoir so that a clutch leak will not empty the reservoir, so won't affect the brakes.

Hey Guys,

Well I've been coming into some difficulty in getting the damage clutch line disassembled. The end of the line (part 9) isn't threaded, it seems it just snaps in although you can turn the other end with 15mm wrench (part 12). Does it just snap out with force?? The diagram is from a 996 but basically the same. Does anyone have any suggestions on how this disassembles? I'm going to try and get a pic. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Hey guys. Sorry in the delay in following up. Everything was pretty straight foward. Flare nut wrenches are a must. Old clutch line coulpings can easily strip. I just bleed the clutch, no need to bleed entire system. Thanks to all that helped!
