Ok learned gents try this one on. The victim is a 2000 Boxster S with 66K miles, a six-speed manual and no abuse. Last week or so I was driving along and all of a sudden with the next shift the clutch felt unusually light. Also it just didn’t feel right. Shifting is sort of ok, but the engagement of the clutch is not the same as before. I did a little searching on the internet and the most often cited reason for this problem was one or more broken fingers on the pressure plate. Before I have the tranny pulled and go for a new clutch/pressure plate are there any btdt experiences in this group.
It could be a crack in the pressure plate, but I would first took at the hydraulics.
Make sure that you have no leaks on the slave, just above the tranny and I would also bleed the clutch.
If you have trapped air in the system, you’ll have the same symptoms.
Please keep us posted.
Good luck.
Happy Boxstering,
Pedro
