Clutch replacement

Recommended Posts

Last year I purchased a 99 2.5L it had covered 34000 miles, it now has 38000miles on the clock. The clutch has now started to give off a squealing sound :o when moving off quickly from being stationary.

Would I be correct in thinking it's time to replace the clutch

38K that sounds early for a clutch to wear off.

The dealer had a chance to check my clutch 3 time now (everytime they change the RMS...). The last time was 2 weeks ago and they did not say that the car needed a new clutch, and mine is 50K old...

I guess it depends how much the previous owner slipped to clutch. The clutch repalcement kit is not that expensive, the problem is that it takes a lot of time to do the job. You need to remove the muffler.... So I do not know if you can do it yourself without having a lift at home.

Jeff should know... what is the diagnostic of Dr. Toolpant?

L'embrayage fait le bruit ? Le Français mettrait l'huile d'olive sur l'embrayage. Le Français du Canada emploierait la bière.

A worn clutch does not usually make a noise, unless it is the release or pilot bearings. I was told that a defective 2 mass flywheel does not make such a noise. I have driven a car that went to the rivets on the friction disc. The clutch slipped but did not make noise. Maybe it is different on a Boxster.

If the friction material is gone, like on this picture, then you will make a lot of noise. This car was towed in.
