axle play


Recommended Posts

I've aske before, but got no difinitive answer. My 2001 S 6 speed goes out of warranty next month and I have what feels like driveline play or lash when I lift off the gas and immeditely push down on the gas pedal again. Not a real clunk, but almost. There's play before the power is applied to the wheels. More noticeable in upper gears. The dealer says the halfshaft play is normal, but it just doesn't feel tight as it should. Does anyone else have this

What do you mean by play or lash. Do you feel it when your hand is on the shift knob and you are on and then off the gas. What do you mean buy not a real clunk, or does not feel as tight as it should be. How long have you owned the car and when did you first notice this.

Not enough info.

Try another 6 speed Boxster and see if what you think is something wrong is normal.

There's a lag when the clutch engages and the wheels begin to turn on take-off, small lurch in all gears there's lag when you get off then on the gas, feels like

U-joint or axle play in old front engine rear drive cars. The dealer put it on lift and

said looked OK, but I've owned MGs, Triumphs, Jags, Healy's, and 356B, none had this slop. When the car is on jack stands, the outermost point on tire can be rotated an inch or inch and 1/2 in any gear. When I grabbed the inner CV joint, the play is in the tranny/axle, not the CV joint. My friends Boxter S doesn't feel this way on and off the gas.

That's a good quote to take back to the dealer who says everything is normal.

If you don't get satisfaction, and you believe it is a problem - you might ask the dealer to put you in touch with the PCNA rep.
