Which Clutch Salve Cylinder?

Recommended Posts

Clutch pedal on the floor today, towed the car back home and found a nice puddle of brake fluid under the car, so likely it is the slave cylinder.

This is a 2000 Boxster 5 speed, there are two kinds of slave cylinders I see one with a clip connector, black and a long neck at the connector to the fluid line, and another type, silver and with a conventional screw in pipe connector to the master cylinder. Is one for 5 speed and the other for 6 speeds? I am not finding clarification for this online.

Removed the slave cylinder, it is the plastic Sacks one, fluid was leaking at the rubber boot, in removing the booth the cylinder fell apart, the 4 plastic tabs that hold the cap against spring pressure fell, very little manipulation on my part, the 4 tabs are thin, I am assuming that the plastic has aged and become brittle, 13 years old part.

Ordered a replacement at local auto parts store and should be here tomorrow, the replacement is Power Torque brand not Shacks, I need to finish this weekend. The part is shared with Audi which might be why is its available, the local Porsche dealer wanted 2 days and $ 107.47, local auto store was $ 69.99.
