Either the rubber hub is disintergrating, or the hub itself is decoupling fromthe friction disk - meaning eventually, the disk will spin, but the hub will not. (this is usually indicated by a CLANK when putting it in gear or shifting)

End result, you need a new clutch.

Yo, you need this,



I just installed a clutch kit in my 944.

The person I got my set from was at a good price on Ebay. I paid with shipping $475.

She is selling another set now. Buy it now ($415+ shipping)

Go here.

i want to cry
i do get that clanking noise. i dont know what exactly makes that noise though. could it possibly be due to a slave cylinder on the way out? (i dont know anything about manual transmissions, im just kind of hoping here since i have the slave cylinder waiting to go in)
thank you guys

Not likely, when my slave went the pedal just went to the floor, no clanking. When I got clanking it was the clutch, sorry man.

Alas no, it is your clutch disk.

There are 2 metal "ears" that hold the hub and disk together, when it breaks loose, the hub spins independantly of the disk until it hits the stop - making that clank

when the ear finally breaks loose, it will just spin..

As AFJuvat said there are two metal "ears", this is for limp model as in just getting you home kinda thing when the rubber hub disintegrates. That harsh clunk your hearing is very hard on your tranny, kinda like towing somebody w/ a chain and taking off w/o getting the slack out of the chain first...ouch.
