Dual Mass Flywheel failure

Transmission and Clutch

Vehicle Information: Model: 996; Year: 2001; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 43K;

Joel this is a follow up, I normally don't go 1st to 3rd etc, in the past its been a good indicator of suspected clutch wear, if it slips you have a clutch repair coming. test maybe no longer valid with he torque a 996 produces. You are right about me not pausing between clutch release and application of power, is the wear effect more prevalent with the 996,997 models? it seems to me counter intuitive for hi performance applications. Good info and a good catch with Peter, the PP is indeed warped, there is at least 1/8 " gap from the inner to outer ring surface. I know you think short shifters are a "mechanics" friend, but is there ever an application for a wannabe fast driver?
