    Squeak if clutch is popped.

    Today I was driving my 06 WRX "aggressively" and I popped the clutch a few times between shifts and each time it made a squeak/squeal sound. Usually I would hear the rear end bang. Is it the clutch slipping? The clutch has less than 10k on it and I usually drive around like a grandma?


    Thanks,
    Zach

    Squeak if clutch is popped.

    I have a clutch like that on a different car. Sounds almost like a squeaky belt? It may not be slipping yet but it could have uneven wear or uneven friction on the disc.

    I have never noticed it before. Today was the first time. The clutch is also fairly new and installed by a reputable Subaru shop.

    I also looked up the maintenance record and the flywheel was resurfaced.

    You still could have warped the clutch disc even with a resurfaced flywheel. Which means your flywheel may have been warped as well. Maybe if it's a stock disc it could be more prone to this then an aftermarket, heavier one that can handle the extra abuse.

    I can shift fairly fast and high rpms and it will not make a sound. It's only when I let go of the clutch very fast, like lifting my foot off the clutch from the floor as fast as I can.

    I shouldn't be shifting like that anyway so I guess I won't worry about it.

    Yeah... driving like that pretty much guarantees you'll be back here asking us for recommendations on gear sets in the not too distant future.

    Knock that **** off if you don't want a rather large repair bill coming your way.

    Another queston... is the popping coming from the clutch itself, or the bracket area?

    It's coming from the engine bay/ transmission area. Not inside the car.

    is that the pinion gears teeth trying to mesh? but the teeth missing each other and thus "popping"? And would it make a whining sound and a sound like the exhaust is shaking? cause mines doing that and i wonder if i could put any spacers to make the gears a lil tighter? Possibly .3 around the gears to tighten this?
