Specs for clutch slave cylinder bleeder (to build a remote bleeder)?

Recommended Posts

I'm interested in buying or having built a remote bleeder for the clutch slave cylinder on my 997.1


Does anyone happen to know the "size" of the bleeder in the clutch slave for a 997.1? Thread pitch, tip configuration (to mate with slave seat configuration), diameter, length, etc. It seems that that's the only Porsche specific part I'd need to know about (to be able to build-out the rest).

The clutch slave cylinder bleeds through the brake reservoir.

Follow the procedure for the 996 series cars (it is the same) for proper bleeding of the clutch slave.


Optional Clutch Bleeding

(near the end)

Thanks Loren - I'm definitely going to follow that procedure. But instead of laying on my back to open and close the bleeder, I will open and close a bleeder, from my feet, with the new remote bleeder in the engine compartment.


But what I want to do is to remove the stock bleeder on the clutch slave cylinder and replace it with an extension line to become a "remote bleeder". There don't seem to be any "on the shelf" for purchase so I'll spec one out and have it built.


But I need the specs for the stock bleeder valve so I can tell the fabricator what part to start this extension line with. Basically, the extension line will be a male part that screws into the cylinder. That male part will be crimped to about 5 feet of stainless braided brake line and then crimp-terminate to bleeder valve.


So, for that first male part, I need to know the "size" of the bleeder in the clutch slave for a 997.1. Thread pitch, tip configuration (to mate with slave seat configuration), diameter, length, etc.

I do not know if a VW - Porsche cross reference exists outside of the factories.


I know VW, Audi, Skoda, SEAT and Lamborghini use common parts. Porsche use some of the same parts. There may be some BMW and Mercedes compatibility too, Bosch for example.


Perhaps we can have a section where we find part x fits the following, there must be common things like filters, bosch sensors etc

I found in post (http://rennlist.com/forums/porsche-cup-cars/771311-clutch-bleed-extension.html) that the 997 and 996 are different, 10mm and 6mm, respectively. I've written to BAT to see if they can put one together for me.


The blled nipple doesn't look like it comes as a spare only part of a slave cylinder.

I looked up a clutch slave cylinder for a 2006


There is quite a lot of different models that this fits
