Loren my clutch pedal is making a strange spring tension like creaking noise

when I depress it. I see the following TSB:

7/00 3041 Creaking Noise in Clutch Bell Housing Area 12-22-2000

Any Chance you could send it to me?

Cheers,

:drive:

Yes that one is for a creaking noise in the bell housing (behind you) and there is another one for creaking noises at the pedal. I'll send both.

Double thanks. I think I am best getting them to fix this when I get the gearbox replaced.

Hi Loren,

I am having the same creaking noise from the tranny area. My dealer tried to lube the slave cylinder but it still makes the same noise. They mentioned that they would have to pull the whole tranny down. If you don't mind, please forward the TSB on the bell housing area.

I also plan on doing the full electronics for the PSE. Thanks for the TSB on that. However, my only concern regarding the install is to tap and drill into the rear deck panel.

Do you have the TSB on how to remove the passenger side C-pillar and rear carpet in order to gain access onto the rear deck?

Thanks,

Eric

Okay, the procedure involves replacing the release bearing and arm -- so the transmission will have to come out.

What year car? Old PSE (3.4) or newer version?

BTW... it is more than electronics you have to install vacuum lines to control the valves.

Do you have the TSB on how to remove the passenger side C-pillar and rear carpet in order to gain access onto the rear deck?
FYI... These items are not in TSBs (Technical Service Bulletins) they are in the service manual.

The C pillar unsnap by pulling forward (towards the car interior). The foam piece over the DMEcan be removed to get access to the rear deck.

Thanks again, Loren. Great information. That Clutch bell housing TSB is fairly old and my car should have the newer part (Built date 2/26/03). I'm undecided if I should let the dealer remove my tranny just for a squeak.

BTW, I have a 2003 C2 and will install the newer PSE. The TSB for the PSE regarding the vacuum lines appears straight forward; I realize the whole task of electronics/ vacuum lines and mufflers will be very time consuming.

Scouser,

I had my 2003 C2 clutch pedal assembly replaced because of a squeak in the clutch pedal/dash area. The dealer first tried to relube it but evetually replaced the whole assembly. I think there is a TSB on this procedure.

2000 Boxster S with 85000 km. Also creaking noise at the rear - Porsche Centre South Africa says that clutch is not covered under maintenance plan. Does this fall under clutch? Secondly, on startup most times, I get a loud squeel, similar to an aircon belt squeel (in other cars). This started after the last service, when I asked them to look at the clutch noise, although it could be coincidence. Is there a belt that could be too loose, hence the squeel and is it easy to correct?

Are TSB for clutch noises covered even when the car is out of warranty, just a question that many may be thinking about

Probably not - unless your car has a history of related problems.
