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 .

      2006 C2S, All highway driving. From past experience with my cars, I know that I am gentle on my clutch/trani. 108,000 miles on original clutch. Pedal travel is still 2.5-3.0 inches from floor to start of engagement. I do not think that pedal effort has increased. Am I on borrowed time? 
      Thoughts?
      Thanks in advance.

      Can the standard 2001 Boxster Roadster 2.7 L Porsche clutch friction disk be installed backwards?  If so what feature faces the forward (towards motor) direction?

      Hi Guys,
       
      Aircraft engine Tech, currently replacing the clutch on my AutoX 1999 996 C2, first time tackling a clutch/ IMS job.
       
      While the clutch & Pressure plate are worn out, I inspected the flywheel, based on Porsche's TSB 911 8/02 1360, & found it to be a bit worn, but serviceable. Common knowledge suggest to replace the flywheel every second clutch change or every 100K miles.
       
      Considering the high price of the flywheel, is it Worth it to replace it right now or I can expect it to last until the next clutch change?

      Looking for your help? I just did a complete clutch replacement on my 2003 Boxster. After getting the engine and transmission in and completely bleeding the clutch hydraulics 3 time, my clutch pedal sticks after depressing especially at higher rpms. Did something else break in the process? Thank you for your responses.

      Hi All,
       
      Please forgive me if I'm repeating a post. I've looked for a solution to my issue fairly thoroughly and both online or in person I have found little information on the subject specific to the automobile or mostly dismissive answers to the question:
       
      "What, if any component or piece of the transmission/clutch system governs the engagement point as it relates to pedal travel?"
       
      The car is a 2003 TT and when I had the cooling tubes pinned I had a stage 2 clutch installed.
       
      When I first bought the car I thought that the pedal "caught" high in comparison to our 2001 C4 and 2003 C2, I wanted to simply lower the progression and I expected the 600+ HP rated clutch to be heavier.
       
      In effect this all had the exact opposite effect. The clutch catches extremely high through about three degrees of pedal travel. 
       
      Does anyone out there know enough about this system to perhaps comment on the situation?
       
      I am suspecting the springs govern the progression. But then what governs the spot where engagement begins? I would find the car far easier to drive if it could be moved closer to the floor. Right now I have to physically bend my knee to release the clutch and with so little progression it's actually hard to drive smoothly.
       
      I can honestly say I wouldn't buy it if I test drove it like it is now. Biggest mistake I ever made with a car.
       
      Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated.
