Check out the Rennlist thread mentioned at the end. The spring is not hard to replace. Porsche says not to lube it but some have. I think there might be a TSB on it here in the TSB pages.

From this blog;


"Clutch feel & stalling

I've been driving my 996 for a month or two and I had noticed that I come close to stalling the car quite regularly when going over a particular massive speed bump or manoeuvering into parking spaces. Now I have discovered that lots of 996 owners who are quite familiar with driving manual cars also experience this issue with the 996. It turns out there is a helper spring attached to the clutch pedal which serves to make the pedal operation very light but at the same time it makes it a lot harder to feel the point of engagement of the clutch. Removing the spring increases the pressure required to operate the clutch but gives you the feel you'd expect. Details here - Rennlist clutch pedal thread"
