    New clutch set - sticky pedal

    Just had a new clutch put in on my 2006 997 at a pretty popular Porsche tuning outfit in Los Angeles. The pedal is now very nice and smooth but does not pop back up the way it is supposed to. It seems though it gets stuck for a fraction of a second and then pops back up. When shifting slowly, the problem can not be felt.

    I read trends online on a similar issue with Caymans and looks like the problem can be attributed to a faulty pressure plate (manufacturing defect) or loose pressure plate bolts.  Another possible culprit I read about was the slave cylinder but I don't think that is my problems as before changing the clutch set I didn't have this problem with the pedal. Thoughts anyone?

    By the way, I'm taking the car back in on Friday for them to troubleshoot and replace the whole clutch set. They already bled it out the fluids and flushed the system which didn't fix the problem.

    I just wanted to see if anyone had experienced a similar problem.

    Thanks!

    This may be a "red herring" -- but worth mentioning just in case, as I know a couple of people who have had an issue with the clutch pedal...

    One "potential issue" with the 997 clutch pedal sticking is much simpler to fix than you might imagine -- if the the driver-side floor mat has moved forward from the original position, there is a problem that the clutch pedal can occasionally get caught on the leading edge of the floor mat, making the clutch feel like it's sticking.

    The solution to this "potential issue" is to just remove the floor mat and re-install further back on the driver-side floor, where it cannot catch on the clutch pedal.

    ...all the best with finding the solution to your clutch pedal sticking!

    Thanks Boxter Coupe GTS!  I just checked out the floor mat and unfortunately that wasn't the issue.

    UPDATE:  the whole clutch set was replaced the problem went away.  As suspected, the issue was with a faulty pressure plate.
