Clutch PITA... info only

I replaced my clutch master cylinder while I was in there but couldn't get any fluid to come out of the slave when I tried to bleed it. I pulled the bleed nipple out and cleaned it out but still no fluid came out when bleeding from top or bottom. I'm now convinced that the old slave (original) has so much crud in it that it's plugged from the inside. So, waiting for new replacement of the slave and I'm convinced that it will solve the problem.

You might want to replace the hose from the master to the slave while you are at it.

I really don't have much good to say about Porsche's clutch hydraulics.

When I did mine, I had to use air at about 12 psi into the reservoir to get the flow to start.
If that does not work try pushing the clutch paddle down (gently !) to the floor.

Today I replaced the slave cylinder and the rubber hose feed line. This was so much easier than I anticipated. I'm now replacing all the brake rubber lines with braided lines as well since I'm having to flush and replace the fluid in the reservoir any how. The little brake line fittings on the frame are causing me fits. They won't turn due to old age and I'm trying to get them to free up. I don't dare use propane torch since they're under the plastic wheel well liner and next to the fuel lines. Last thing I want to do is screw up the fitting. I'm soaking them overnight with penetrating oil and will try again tomorrow.

Rusty old brake line fittings require the judicious use of a vise grip. The fitting will look a bit ratty when your done, but it works. Otherwise, you're looking at rounding off the fitting to infinity and beyond~!

Driver side front wouldn't turn so I cut the old line and turned the rubber line end while holding the small 11 mm end to remove the line. Then used WD 40 to soak the small fitting and started working it back and forth a little at a time until it finally loosened on the brake line. The passenger side, however, is more reluctant to come apart at all. I've soaked the fitting overnight and purchased a set of line (flare) wrenches to go after it again. It was a pain trying to find a set that included the 11mm wrench and finally found a set at NAPA auto parts. Will see how it goes today.
