    Exclamation Help! Clutch problem!

    Today as I was driving my beautiful 09 wrx down busy city street and slowing down to stop at a stop light I pushed in my clutch and a loud hard pop followed. Since I bought the car a month ago the clutch has been squeaky. I didn't think anything of it. So I ignored it. MISTAKE! So the clutch still works and is still drivable. But when I push in the pedal the brake also slants in towards the clutch. Anyone have a clue what it might be? Or also how much it would cost to fix? I need advise quick I'm planning a trip to Vegas this weekend is it safe to still make the 6 hour drive?

    Help! Clutch problem!

    Sounds like you need to push the drivers seat back, grab a flash light and look at the pedal box in your drivers side footwell. Particularly the pivot shaft for the clutch pedal, the clutch pedal spring and the springs contact points. I'd fix it before you drive.

    Would this be an expensive fix?

    Depends on what's wrong. Grab a flash light and a camera, investigate and report back.

    Definitely check that out. Might be as simple as a bolt that has backed itself out. Won't know until you look.

    This happened to me. Unless your situation is different and you don't have the same problem..
    Basically the clutch pedal and brake pedal are connected in a way that when you push the clutch pedal in the brake pedal follows it to the left a bit. I think it's just the way it's connected to the shaft.
    The popping noise i heard was from the movement of the clutch and brake pedals rubbing against a bolt somewhere up in the footwell. It's hard to see but I basically just soaked everything that moved...any contact points in white lithium grease. Came back once before...soaked it again...no noises for a few months now
