    Just got the car back from the dealer

    And they fixed the clutch shudder, it feels like a new car now. Clutch is way easier to press and engage and all that. But it STILL squeaks (the guy said they all do, but i don't believe) and it's driving me nuts! It's coming from the spring that pulls the clutch back, and ideas on what to do?

    Maybe try spraying it with WD40? The clutch in my civic used to squeek, but it was coming from within the clutch master cylinder. I just sprayed behind the piston with WD40 and it stopped.

    Yea it does drive me mad. But i mean, i've used oil and lubricant plenty of times, and no dice. The dealer said he'd call a SOA rep for me. I was like alright?
