    Clutch Question

    I was wondering if theres something wrong with my clutch because when I release it slowly, it makes this like creaking noise. Kinda like when u open an old door slowly it makes that noise. Its not like extremely loud but it is very noticable especially when the car is off. Is that normal or is something wrong here.

    yeah i got that too,
    it comes from the pedal, right??
    it's nothing, probably just a spring or hinge, nothing to worry about

    oil the pin that your pedal rotates on. and whatever it links to at the top of the pedal and it should go away. that is what i have done on my camaro and it should be similar. a clutch pedal is a clutch pedal.

    I use lithium grease on the cluth lever pin and arm lever. It tends to last longer than WD40, but doesn't peneatrate as far.

    Sorry to resurrect this thread, but I am about 500 miles from my bumper-to-bumper ending and I was wondering if people had brought their cars in for this or just lubed up the spring/pin. I plan to use lithium grease myself, and I want to confirm that it works for the clutch pedal squeak.

    My pedal has squeaked on EVERY shift since day one. Same with my fiancee's 2005 RS, so I figured it was normal and nothing to stress about. I just hate messing with dealerships.

    Thanks,

    Lithium grease will take care of it for a while. But you'll end up doing it again. Might want to consider some axle grease. It stays on a bit longer than lithium does, although it's a ton messier.
