HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 1:56 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 …

Removing power brake booster, question

Post  Arthropraxis on Sun Dec 13, 2009 5:19 pm

When taking off the brake booster everything I have read off of the PHB search has you under the dash. I was wondering if you could get to the top bolts easier by taking off the fuse box and coming in through the top? If it is not going to be any easier I don't want to take the fuse box off. I just was looking at it after taking the MC off and it looked like a possibility. Anyone ever try this?

You can't get to the bolts by removing the fuse box, but lifting up and to the side will make removal of the clutch assist spring easier....

Yep, what he said...

You'll be both places. The pedals are easily removed from outside the car, but everything
must be disconnected from underneath the dash.

Slightly tight with the 944 harness and steering column in the way.

Looks like I'll be on my back.

I saw the picture describing how to take the spring out through the top. That is what gave me the idea. Could I get to the brake pedal easier through the top?

Booster bolts, no.
Pedals, YES, definitely.

You need to remove the pedal retainer clip and pushrod retaining clip from underneath first, and the (top - left from the engine compartment) inside bolt is tight, but manageable. Once all is loose, the clutch pedal assembly (with brake pedal shaft) can be pulled out the fuse panel hole. The clutch power assist spring and the rod that locates it may be removed. If you really want to keep the spring in place, adjustments (= less spring tension) should be made at least.

NOTE: I removed the complete pedal assembly through the fuse panel opening, after about 5 minutes of wrenching under the dash.

It's not that difficult, just one more set of steps to overcome.

Thanks.

I am going to remove the spring based on what I have read. Right now I am just doing everything I can easily with the motor being out. It is a lot easier to do some of this while standing in the engine bay. I will do the dual MC brakes, the clutch MC and AC lines. So more questions will be coming soon.

Inspect the firewall around the clutch MC closely while everything is apart. I know of one instance where the metal was cracked but not visible until disassembled.

(Not pushing the plate, just making you aware of the possibility...)

Already planned on doing that.

Going to get a new clutch MC too.
