I know this topic has been covered before, but I just wanted to re-hash the issue since it seems to be haunting the '07 models as well... just purchased my '07 OBP WRX on November 24th. I have been following the break-in period rules, and only have 625 miles on the car. I began noticing a slight squeak from the clutch at about 200 miles. Now it is incessant and even more noticeable when its really cold out (yes, I realize the cold/heat affect it..). I've had the car to the dealer 2 times now, about to be a third.. both times they have simply told me "we did not notice any abnormal noises coming from the clutch". Huh? How do you figure? This squeaking is driving me freaking NUTS. I am going in there next week to have my turbo gauge re-installed (because they bent the first one, my dealer is a bunch of idiots) and I am going to INSIST that they lube the clutch. I almost feel like I'm getting ****ed over because I'm a girl and dealers assume girls don't know a car from a monkey riding a tricycle.
I had a Scion tC for awhile and had the same problem during the first 30k miles, dealer lubed the clutch 2 or 3 times and it eventually went away.
So I pose this question.. I absolutely ADORE my car, my first Subaru ever, my first AWD car ever and I wouldn't trade it for the world.. but is this obnoxious squeak something I am going to have to look forward to for the duration of the time I own my car? Or will perpetual lubing help it? Is there a way (and what exactly do I use) to lube it myself? Should I even be worried, or just learn to ignore the noise?
