2004 Porsche 996 Targa

PostPosted: Sun Feb 11, 2018 3:29 pm    Post subject: Clutch pedal not fully up Reply with quote

Our 911 finally saw the 2018 light today after 2/3 months stuck in the garage. Had a walk planned so seemed a great opportunity to take it out.

Its been used to this lack of use each winter and never beena problem. However today when I took it out the clutch pedal was partially down and stayed down. I tried pumping the clutch but made no difference, I could still change gear OK so decided to go for the planned drive anyway and see if this helped.

About 15 minutes later my left foot was pleasantly surprised to be hit by the clutch pedal pinging up and returning to normal. Was fine for the rest of teh drive to the walk, and when we drive home.

My only guess is that this is the first really cold winter for a while, and its not been used for slightly longer than usual.

Just wondered what might be going on?

And yes, I know I should be using the car more often Very Happy

Sounds like it may have been a sticky master or slave cylinder Dont know

Will most likely be ok now.

Pop an orthopeodic shoe on your left foot. It'll give a bit more 'stroke' That'll sort it... Smile

Thanks all.

Will keep an eye on it and try and get the car out a bit more as the weather improves. Its being serviced in June so will mention it then if nothing happens in between.
