HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

clutch pedal not returning

Post  a951 on Fri Aug 19, 2011 4:04 pm

Hi, sooo Ive bled it and bled it, but pedal kept just hitting the bottom, with the spring pushing it, and pedal wouldnt return... so I finally got help from a friend, and it turns out the clutch IS working great! just over halfway in, you can turn the axle freely, and the slave instantly moves, when clutch pedal, and master is pressed.. so thats good.

But how on earth do I get the pedal to return to upper position after beeing pressed? I have the small spring on the slave. once I pull the pedal over the pivotpoint so the clutch pedal spring goes from push, to pull mode, it instantly snaps up, but getting it up to the pivot point is the issue.

I feel stupid right now.

Do you have the Porsche helper spring in? It's pretty good sized and adjustable. You can access it from under the fusebox, and removing the plastic cover that protects the wring from the clutch pedal mechanism.

How many people are removing it? Does it need to be removed for just adjusted?

The spring doesn't have to be removed to adjust it. If you push the clutch in the nut at the back of the spring can be adjusted in or out easier. Apparently, you can get through the fuse box to get at it. That would have been a handy bit if information when I was on my back pushing the clutch with one hand and turning the nut with the other, blindly.

Yes, don't remove it, adjust it! Sorry you did it from underneath, under the fusebox is very easy. Also, do not remove the brake pedal return spring, it is a good thing. Watch out, the brake pedal return spring will snap off, and dissapear in your dashboard, or worse, poke you somewhere!

I did actually adjust the spring, before removing it, and it was much better, but pedal feel without it, as it sits now seems better to me.

If I get a stiffer pressure plate in the future, I might install it again.
