    Troubleshooting help please. 997 Clutch issue.

    I noticed this earlier in the week.

    Whist driving along changing gear as you do with a 6 speed manual, I started feeling a knocking through the clutch pedal when I was releasing it, only very mild, but enough to make me notice and thought a fault was starting to develop.

    Anyway, tonight I stopped at some traffic lights, engaged the handbrake took the car out of gear, then released the clutch pedal. What I noticed was on releasing the pedal a fairly distinctive knock was felt as the pedal neared the full extent of the release. When I depressed the clutch again and then released the knocking was not apparent.

    What might be the issue here, is it possibly just an adjustment required or do you think it's a clutch plate issue. It could even be a gear box issue I suppose. Has anyone else had or experienced this? If so what was the fault if you were able to identify it.

    Thanks all.

    Sounds like a coil return spring in the clutch pedal mechanism might be interfering with something, the "knocking" being caused by individual spring spirals catching one after the other as the spring contracts or extends.

    Which would be better news than having a "real" clutch problem.

    I don't think you'd feel a clutch problem via the pedal and agree that you might want to poke your head under the dash, as it sounds more to do with the mechanism.

    Thanks all for the comments.

    It really feels like some "slack in the driveshaft" to be honest if that makes sense. I can re-create the knocking which certainly will help whilst trying to identify the problem. The problem is, both my local OPC's (Leeds and Sheffield ) are not my favourite dealers to be honest. It means going to Notts where I bought it from which is a bit of a pain...
