Default 00 2.5rs clutch issues

So I'm having two problems, one of which occurs quite often.

I have a 00 2.5 RS 5MT, and when I'm driving when I press on the clutch pedal I hear a sort of snap. It sounds like a large charge of static, and it's strong enough to where I can barely feel it through my shoes. I can't find any one thing that I'm doing to cause it, and it happens pretty often like 3-4 times each way to work which is about 12 miles each way.

The other problem has occurred a handful of times -- usually when it's hot. The pedal will typically drop to the floor, leaving only the engagement area where there's any feel. I've been reading the forums quite a bit and I think this might be a sign of the slave cylinder failing, but I'm not sure. I've been thinking of bleeding the clutch, but I've heard that sometimes that can unexplainably cause the slave cylinder to fail.

I would <3 any suggestions that you all may have.

Thanks,
Mike

I had the same problem with my 99 RS (dead clutch). I had to rev match to switch gears while stuck in traffic. That was a pain in the ass coz I didn't always get it right.

But after a few minutes, the clutch was back to normal!

Every now and then, I can feel the clutch losing its resistance and I'd have to switch back to rev matching (or whatever it's called) and then it would be back to normal. Happens when I'm stuck in traffic for too long and sometimes when it's very hot out (but no traffic).

If you don't have one already, try changing the rubber line from the clutch master to the slave with a stainless braided line. You can find them on ebay for cheap. Same theory as the brake lines, no expansion under pressure. I would think this would help out in stop and go when you're always on and off the clutch.

Even with a new clutch, my clutch pedal felt soft. I changed that line out and it feels nice and solid now.

First problem - the switch that disengages the cruise control is getting sticky. You can lube it, or ignore it.

Second problem - you need a new clutch slave cylinder. I've replaced two on my RSes, and one on a friend's due to that same problem. Go ahead and replace the hose, too. It can start leaking, as the one on the friend's car did.
