Given that you said you an depress the clutch and it goes away, you are dealing with a throw out bearing in the area between the engine and transmission. This bearing is responsible for pressing against the pressure plate fingers and release pressure against the friction disc(your clutch, put quite simply). Your best bet is to replace the clutch, throw out bearing, pressure plate and pilot shaft bushing. They are all in the same area. If you wish to tackle this on your own, let me know and I will see if I have the Porsche shop manual to walk you through it. Please let me know.

    I'm not too familiar with that area. What state? I will do some research and respond to you asap. One thing to remember is to always check for certification. Not because it means they know what they are doing necessarily, but that they take their career seriously enough to take time to test. Then ask for their warranty practices. Always get a warranty in writing!! If after we find a shop for you, the shop will diagnose before repair. Once they do that, they then will come to you with their findings and shoot you a price. Feel free to contact me and I will give you my advice and opinion on the repair price.

G/day i need help puting in a new clutch kit into a 99 leganza the car is off the ground wheel is off now do we start by taking off/or dropping the passenger side suspension and all so the plastic covers...

It's best if you get a manual on this. Some times it is easier to remove the engine and transmission. some times you can remove enough of the steering and wheel parts to spread the trans and engine apart to get a clutch package out and in. these are always a look and see type job. They are difficult to do, not impossible. You also have to remove both drive shafts, so both sides have to come apart as you have stated.

I have ratlling sound coming from the timeing chain area worse when first started

This sounds like the tensioner is broke or came loose, this is something you need to have looked at, if the chain jumps it will cause piston to valve damage, heres a picture to show you what im talking about more clearly, also i would remove the belt and run the engine to make sure its not a pulley or the ac compressor clutch making the noise.i circled the parts that may be cause the timing chain to be noisey and also the ac tensioner, hope this helps,fb714f4.gif

Knoking sound wile driveing it comes and goes

is it more from the front or back of the car ?? over bumps ?? while acelerating or braking ??

on the top of the front struts there's a rubber bushing called the "upper strut mount" this is a commonly replaced item. Also the sway bar bushings are frequently replaced. or, it could be something totally different..... gremlins ??

How long will it take to repair a 87 suzuki samurai clutch, 4x4

Remove the shifter from inside, two connectors to the sensorson the trans at the firewall, remove 4 bolts holding front driveshaft to the front diff, slide rear section of front driveshaft out of the splines, remove 4 bolts holding rear driveshaft to transfer case and slide the driveshaft out of the transmission tailshaft, remove the two starter bolts ( hardest part of the job), leave the starter in the engine bay with the wires still attached, remove the clutch ARM from the transmission, remove the rear transmission mount (4 12mm bolts) support the transmission on a jack, put another jack in from of the engine to pitch the engine so the rear is sagging down slightly (this is so you have enough clearance to remove the transmission), remove the four 14 mm bellhousing bolts (remember the longer one goes onto the passenger side top) tip the tailshaft up to the floor of the Sammy and slide it to the rear as far as possible, let the front come down slowly ( it will barley rub the pressure plate but not enough to hurt anything) presto its out, replace the clutch assembly and grease throwout and transmission splines the reverse these steps. I have done 3 of these and accomplished my last one in 4 hours total. No need to remove the exhaust, transfer case or engine as others have stated on numerous write ups. You will need two 12mm combo wrenches, one 14mm combo wrench, one 3/8 drive ratchet with 12mm shortwell socket, a couple extensions for said ratchet, one small pair of pliers (to hold the clutch cable while adjusting) and a hammer to gently tap the clutch arm onto the splines.
