Hi al!


I wonder of anyone can assist.


My car 1999 2.5 boxster.


Leaking from clutch slave cylinder and master cylinder, but now replaced BUT won't go into gear?


Had a leak near my foot for a few days then brake fluid light came on THEN the clutch pedal hit the floor.


System has been bled and slave and master replaced, but blew one of them off and was leaking again.


Any ideas?  Do I need a new clutxh? Gearbox was fine before this happened.


88K miles on car and had  never had to change the clutch ( I am the 2nd owner and had car from 50K.


Garage has it, suspects clutch, but they are not Porsche ( before they send it to specialist, what do you think?

Have you checked for damage to the shift linkage? both at the shifter and under the car at the transmission?

 No, but there was no problem with the gearbox/clutch before the master and slave cylinder were changed. Could changing the cylinders cause issue?

On a scale of 1 to 10, how confident are you that the shop is capable of doing a good job on your Boxster?


Then ask yourself the question how much are you looking forward to dicking around with this until you mess up the gearbox because of improper clutch release?


I don't think your issue is easily fixed by consensus forum diagnostics. Just take it to someone that knows these cars.

I mean if the cylinders were not fitted properly or bled properly, could this cause other issues? 

Yes any one of these could be the issue, or one of the parts that was installed has failed. Are you sure the slave cylinder was replaced? It's a pita to get to and fit properly.
