Cabriolet Top/Clutch Pedal


Recommended Posts

Two issues with my TT Cab:

The top started squeaking horribly today - at all speeds/road conditions. The car has about 700 miles and it's the first I've noticed it. I had this problem on a '99, but not on the '01 and '03 and thought it had been fixed by Porsche.

The problem only occurs while the top is up. It sounds as if it is metal on metal and I'm wondering if it has something to do with the metal boot cover rubbing against the top components. Are there any TSBs or other solutions for this problem.

The second issue I have is with a squeaking clutch. It only occurs during the last 1/3 or so of engagement. I've read about this problem before. Is there a simple fix or is this a dealer fix?

Just did a test on the top. I pushed on the soft top and was able to duplicate the sound on both sides of the car. It appears as if the squeaking is being caused by the roof rubbing against the metal boot. I put the top down and then back up and the sound is now gone. It will probably reappear once I go over some bumps/heaves in the road the next time I drive.

How about the clutch squeek??? Do you still hear the sound???

Mine squeeks a bit, but now I've noticed the clutch feels kind of spongy when I press the clutch quickly...I checked the hydraulic fluid and it was very low. I topped it off with the "11 S" stuff from the dealer and it's better but not quite like before. Any ideas???
