Clutch Job at 37000 Miles? Am I Dreaming?

Hello,

I have a 2002 Porsche Boxster S, 6Speed. The clutch last week got stock to the floor, and since has been acting weird. I did some research, and people noted the problem might be Slave and Master Cylinder. Had the shop, change the Slave, and the problem still resides. He tell me, it might be my pressure plate. The car has only 37000 miles. Can this be true?

Clutch to the floor is usually hydraulics.

The slave is changed, I have a master that I can change. What's the next thing? How about the hydronic line?

Clutch stuck to the floor can also be throwout bearing failure. I had this happen and had to replace the clutch, bearing, and pressure plate because all of the broken bits ate into everything else. Also replaced the dual mass flywheel at the same time since it was worn too.

If that's the case, I was thinking of ordering the 3Piece kit, which includes

1. Pressure Plate
2. Clutch
3. Throw-out Bearing

You are correct - you can order a Sachs clutch kit from your favourite supplier which includes all the parts you require for the changeout.

This is what's been done so far. I'm trying to see if there is possible anything else I can do, and try before getting the big job done.

1. Fluid Flush - Take out the bobbles, no change
2. Clutch Slave Exchange - No change

Have not done:

1. Clutch Master Cylinder
2. Pressure Plate
3. Clutch
4. Throw bearing
