996 Turbo Slave and Accumulator DIY

Post by TheDeckMan » Tue Feb 27, 2018 2:26 pm

So did this on my 996 last fall with help of a fellow Porsche owner at his shop while my lift had not been installed yet prior to a road trip.

My front reservoir started to weep and the clutch would be very stiff if the car sat for a week or longer. The other thing I noticed was that it would grab a little different depending on the fluid temps. Most likely due to the intermix I am guessing.

Drop belly pan and disconnect cooling lines in the way.

First step is to lower down the trans by disconnecting the transmission mount

Next step is to disconnect the lines, and then the accumulator. I found using a strap wrench worked best.

Out with the old and in with the new slave.

Reverse and then bleed the slave and done.

Be careful when putting the new slave in to ensure the rod seats into the fork, this is all a blind job of reaching over your head.

Total time using the lift was~1 hour.

thanks for the write up, I have a feeling this maybe in the near future for me. question, did you just loosen the trans mount only? did you also have to loosen the motor mounts? thanks..

Just the trans mount, the engine mounts stay tightened and there is plenty of room.
