clutch issue


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have 04 996 turbo: I was driving few days ago, going about 20 miles when suddenly  I hear a noise like  asnap and then my clutch when to the floor. I pull the clutch up manually then I notice the clutch is very  very hard. I push it down hard once and it stayed down again. I was  able to start the car but I can not engage into any gear. I had the car towed home inspect any fluid leak, non. I inspected the front clutch reservoir, no overflow. but what I noticed today that my slave cylinder is very loose. you can move it freely up and down  feels like some thinking broke. Can it be the fork? or is the  throw out bearing. or can it be the slave got disengage from fork and should be place back . is it something that I can do beside clutch and transmission removal. I would highly appreciate any advice, or suggestion.

You better get another look at the slave attachment. If you found it loose there is a problem. The slave is attach to the transmission with two bolts M10 x 35. It should be tight and if it is loose may be it jumped off the clutch fork… Look at the slave on the picture, you will see the two attaching point. Look if the bolts are still there and if the lugs are not broken… I've made a DIY for the slave replacement. You can found it here if you became a Renntech contributor! :http://www.renntech.org/forums/tutorials/article/97-clutch-slave-cylinder-and-accumulator-replacement/


Note: you don't need to remove the transmission or clutch to replace a slave. It is about a three hours job including bleeding….

Thank you so much for your response. I will inspect it again if the lugs are broken I would need to take it to shop , Do you know of any reasonable shop  in southern California that I can use?  I have strong feeling the last guy in dealer  that work on my clutch did not tied the lug well enough

I looked under the car to inspect the lugs. they are all there but the whole slave is loose. I have no choice but  to tow it to shop that I can trust. if any body knows one in LA or Orange county, I will appreciate your sharing  with me .
