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 …

Hi all- while trying to bleed the clutch, I noticed after closing the bleeder valve that the black plastic 2 piece that sits atop the release spring was popping apart and the next press of the clutch caused a leak from the seal around the metal tube. Anyone have any issues with this or any suggestions. I talked to Kent and he thought is sounded like a factory failure and was planning to send out a new one. But if you guys have some knowledge to impart- I welcome it. Thanks- mike Throw out bearing leak 55589110

Is the rest of the clutch installed? If not your going to push that cylinder so far it will start to leak.

The throw out bearing and bellhousing that are out the othe car. I read that it is easier to bleed outside the car prior to engine install. Should bleeding be done after engine is bolted up in place only? I get about an 1/8 of an inch of travel before the plastic tabs pop off on one side and then it begins leaking. Any advice is helpful. Thanks!

If it starts to leak after 1/8" of travel, I'd say its pooched. I thought you might be over extending it and blowing the seal.

when its sitting as pictured the cylinder is at the end of its travel, if you put any hydraulic pressure to it the retainer will come off and you overtravel the cylinder, and the end result is its junk. the bearing is pushed in when its all bolted to the engine.

That sadly makes sense. Can I assume that the bleeding should be done installed in the car which would avoid the over extension issue??? Chalk one more up in the live and learn column. Thank you for the insights!

You could probably bleed it by hand by pulling the bearing in and out. Using the clutch pedal though would cause the bearing to over travel and blow the seal.
