Need to replace 986 clutch, any suggestions?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I think it's time to replace my clutch. Its been slipping pretty bad and I'm doing my best to drive it very gently or not at all. Its a 986 2.5L manual transmission. I've read up on pelican the whole DIY and parts list. I just wanted to see what clutch kit you all would suggest? Also, should I plan on replacing my flywheel? Any suggestions or words of advice would be VERY much appreciated. First time doing a clutch replacement 8)

Hi There!

When replacing the clutch kit (in my opinion the standard one) take also a look at the flywheel and all of the other components relating to the clutch system. Also, takeoff the flywheel an replace the RMS en if needed also the IMS (intermediate shaft bearing) which cause many failures. Don't forget to order the clutch alignment tool also ;)

I had my clutch replaced at 87.5K it was just about down to the rivets.

RMS, LN IMS.

They installed a new clutch kit, clutch pilot bearing, and new flywheel bolts. They even replaced the gear oil in the trans.

I would try to not drive the car at all until it's fixed since depending on what the specific issue is with the clutch you could damage your gearbox if you continue to drive on it.

The OEM clutch kit should be fine. Examine the flywheel but if it's ok, no need to replace.

      Installed a new alpine radio to replace my factory Porsche radio I kept the factory Bose sound system and the factory steering wheel controls still work!
      I think it looks pretty nice, very ecstatic about the new radio look.
      Easy to do

      I have a 2003 Boxster base model (2.7) with auto. Current showing code P0600 and DTE 61. Had a few different Porsche mechanics look at the issue and have not found a solution.  Cleaned the electrical connection at the transmission and verified the ground connections at the tiptronic control module. Had the DME, tiptronic module and immobilizer checked and they were found to be working.
       
      Does the Can-bus connection between the DME and the tiptronic module extend to the immobilizer or other modules? All I could find is information up to the 2001 model year.
       
      Looking for a reason why the DME Is not communicating with the tiptronic and how to test the Can-bus circuit.  Is there a wiring schematic available for the 2003/2004 boxster?
       
      Thanks,

      Hi all 986 guys.
      I will post for the first time.
      I have '98 986K(Tip-s),Can I swap 5-Speed(or 6-Speed) manual transmission?
      In other words, prepare missions, pedals, manual transmission CPUs, etc. like a typical car model (for ex, BMW).
      Is it possible to update only the mission, not the upgrade to 3.4L?
      Has anyone ever seen or heard of such a vehicle?
      I can find 986K 5speed as much as I want, but I want to stick to my one.
       
      Thank you!!
