CLUTCH PROBLEM

1996 Porsche Boxster

Transmission problem
1996 Porsche Boxster 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 108000 miles

hi, I have just been driving my porsche when the clutch pedal stuck to the floor, and the brake fluid warning light came up on the dashboard, the engine starts and can be used without the use of the clutch, would this be a clutch master cylinder issue? Or is this a more serious problem?

cheers

The clutch is a hydraulic system that feeds off the master cylinder brake fluid reservoir. Based on your description its probably a failed clutch slave cylinder thats located on the transmission. Check for fluid leaking below the trans area. If the clutch master cylinder is leaking which is less common, you will finf brake fluid leaking on or near your feet.
