Clutch clunk


Recommended Posts

Hi Robyn, love that yellow. That is just one elegant looking coupe.

Has your car had the updated clutch release put in it. Porsche never put bearings for the release lever in the early short G-50 gearboxes. The fix is somewhat of a painful one(ie not cheap). If the clunk is under load , could be mounts(engine , trans). The rear sway bar mounting brackets also break at the weld(common problem). Tough one to diagnose , without a more detailed description of noise and how/when it occurs. At least this may give you a few points to work from. Hope it helps.

Thanks for response Craig - to provide a few more details.

Picked the car up from it's valve adjustment and when I got in her, I depressed the clutch. All was quiet. As I released the clutch (car not in gear or moving at this point), what I heard was a clang/clunk from the rear of the car. This continued each time I released the clutch even while traveling at any speed. So, it was pretty loud considering I was listening to that wonderful air cooled engine in my ear. I couldn't really "feel" in the clutch pedal, it was more a sound.

This was not occuring prior to the visit to the shop to have the valve adjustment. I bought the car used and it has about 140k on the odo. Clutch still feels strong.

Hi there, I have an 88 that I picked up from a valve job last evening. I noted for the first time a clunk when I released the clutch pedal. Didn't happen when I depressed.

Any thoughts?

Robyn, Is that a stock clutch in it? Did not have noise before? How about now?
