Clutch question

Hey guys here is my issue the other day I backed car out of garage to wash it and immediately the clutch felt funny. By this I mean there is almost no resistance on the way up until about the last inch or so before it engages is the best way to describe it. Anwar I drove it a few miles after I washed it and it seemed ok. Today I drove to the gym and noticed in higher gears it seems slip then catch. After I parked at the gym I noticed a slight burnt smell but not very strong. The car is an 02 S 6speed with 41,600 miles. Any ideas?

New clutch time. Do it before you damage the flywheel ($$).

Ok yeah that's what I was afraid of. I called the dealer out of curiosity they said the parts alone are 850 plus labor does that sound about right?

A Boxster clutch kit (pressure plate, discs, and release bearings) from Sunset Porsche is about $540. I don't know how many hours are involved. May also want to do at the same time:

RMS
IMS upgrade

you can also get the Sachs kit (which is exactly the same kit, minus the Porsche logo) for about 350-360 on ebay.

Springman ,
Suggest you ask for a "while I am in there" list.There is a lot of labor to do the clutch and it takes only a few minutes to check other wear items
DMF
RMS
IMSB
others will add/comment.

Clutch change is around 8-10 hours labour time. And you'll need some special tools.
