2001 996 C2 clutch failure

Transmission and Clutch

Hi Joel,Thanks again for providing such a wonderful resource.I am a bit confused about the condition of my clutch. I recently let a friend (who is also a professional race car driver) drive my car who thought that my clutch was binding and should be adjusted. I brought it to my local Porshce dealership who said it was completely shot and needed to be replaced asap and that there was a good chance I might need to replace the flywheel as well.I was surprised by their response so I took it to a reputable indy Porsche shop and was told that it was absolutely fine.To add even more confusion, I brought my car to a different Porsche dealership who said that due to the increased pressure needed as well as the higher engagement point that the clutch would be due for replacement in the near future but no rush.I should point out that I now hear a squeaking noise when I depress the clutch pedal after the car has been driven for a while that doesn't stop after I turn off the ignition.My car is covered under CPO so if there's a chance this is something that is covered I would love to know.Thank you so much
