I used a large screwdriver to pry the clutch lever and watch adjustment.
Now I fix the tabs in place before installing.
No more adjustments required.

He just submitted a post...some folks said thanks and that it was helpful.

Then he was called a lurker?

Should have been something like "Welcome back!" or "where ya been?"

Just sayin...

Mark has been banned for a long time and can't post here. But, he's still building engines/modifying parts. I know he uses all the info here for research.

Just reiterating why this really isn't a very good idea........ I dunno, some people use vice grips and various C-clamps to compress coil springs too. I guess I value my body parts a bit more.

This is one area I'm very disappointed in Porsche for not making a tool to do this job properly or better yet, a removable inspection door on the ball-housing cover. Porsche went through the trouble of making a special tool to pull down the front suspension when doing on alignment after lifting the wheels. Yet no foresight to come up with a way to adjust the clutch in the car?
If the 928 team had thought of this sooner, I bet the double disc clutch would have remained in the S4's.

Either a stick in the seat or a helper holding the clutch pedal to the floor.

No photo sequence since once the clutch is disengaged it's rather simple, just move the adjusters so the intermediate disc is centered.

If you have the clutch out it can be bench adjusted (which is the method described in the WSM). I've only done this a couple of times and it works.
Easy way to test the clutch is going for reverse after coming to a complete stop.
I routinely test reverse at red lights, just a habit I've formed after all the clutch issues I've had.

I have a new disc, and flywheel. I clamp them together with an intermediate plate, and put a shim in between the disc and int plate, then push the H adjuster down and weld together.

This was found using the forum search tool, and after reading several threads, I picked this one to ask others about.

Mark is on Pelican, but not a frequent poster, still very active with the 928 stuff including the recent adjustable shock setup.

Thought I'd give this method a try today and found that if I abbreviated it down to about 50 words or less, it works out very well.

Thanks for posting this Mark.
