Another Clutch Helper Spring Question

Recommended Posts

The original clutch helper (power?) spring on my car was part number 996-423-579-01. And like others have done, when mine began to squeak and offer little help, I removed it. For those that said this was the best mod they ever did, IMHO, "one man's hamburger is another man's steak." :)

Be that as it may, I know that this particual part was superceded by part number 996-423-081-18. No big deal so far. But I seem to remember reading somewhere that this replacement on my '99 also required several other parts of the pedal assembly to be replaced at the same time.

Now I can't find anything about the newer part. Does anyone know if I do need to do more than just install the new part? Or am I confusing this with TSB 1/99 3005 Boost Spring for Clutch Pedal?

As always, THANKS!

In case anyone finds this on a "search," I went by the stealership today to check on what is needed to replace the original helper spring. The short answer is to just buy the newer part. No other modifications are needed. And FWIW, the "Porsche Genuine" part was cheaper than the Pelican Parts OEM version by about $10.00.

Here is the thread I was talking about about, and the post specifically that calls out the spring from home depot.

I'm showing the genuine part 99642308119 at about $55 from a discounter such as Sunset Porsche.
