    Clutch Makes Clicking Noise

    My clutch, when I press it, seems to randomly make a clicking noise. It doesn't do it everytime. Almost sounds like plastic, but not sure what it is? Any ideas?

    Mine is very random. Every time I am stopped to check it, it doesn't make the click noise. Hard to figure out what is happening if you can't see it.

    I agree. It sounds like you have a throw-out bearing issue.

    The clicking is coming somewhere from the pedal assembly area. It's almost a plastic type clicking noise if that makes any sense. And it actually rarely occurs in comparisson to how often the clutch is used, but it is slightly annoying. The clutch feels fine though.

    Sounds like the ever talked about funky clutch.
    Mine shudders click and make all kinds of noise.
    I say it is OK, mine has 26000 fairly hard miles and is still going.
    Shudders, Noise and all.
    The fix from subaru seems to be a weaker preassue plate and some sort of preassue release mechanise that slows the uptake.
    It will fix the annoyance but make for a weaker cutch overall.

    That is what i gather and is no means accurate.

    We may be talking about different things here:

    - A clack or click or creak or some other weird noise coming from the *pedal* itself when your foot moves the clutch pedal is common. I've no clue why mine clacked, nor why it stopped. I even mentioned it to my dealer, who is excellent, but no luck. Went away on its own.

    - A rattle, rhythmic click, or metallic sound present when the clutch pedal is *up* (clutch engaged) that goes away when the pedal is pushed down (clutch disengaged) is a classic sign of a worn throw-out bearing.

    It, um, sounds like I jumped the gun on the throw out bearing comment I made ealier though; this is probably the phantom pedal clanking nobody can figure out.

    It's from inside for sure, not a mechanical problem, but irritating. Clutch feels just fine.
