Drivetrain Clutch Pedal noise when pressed?

  1. My vehicle has recently developed a squeak that occurs every time the clutch pedal is pressed. It occurs regardless of how quickly the clutch pedal is pressed, and only occurs during the stroke of the pedal travel. It makes no noise at all when it is released, or all the way down (which indicates to me it isn't the TOB).

    Any ideas? Clutch quadrant? Cable? Clutch itself going out?

    Also anyone have any experience with the Exedy Mach 400 clutch?

    Thanks in advance!
  2. Also want to point out the noise occurs when the car is off too. Everything works exactly as well as it did before. There is just an annoying noise now.
  3. The release arm pivot/fulcrum has probably dried out. The noise could also be originating where the TOB rides on the trans front bearing retainer.

    You could remove the inspection cover and have a buddy cycle the pedal while you listen and poke around.

  4. ^+1 I think it's in the pedal assembly. crawl under neither and push the pedal with your hand and look/listen. I bet the pivot has dried out. Some white lithium grease will fix it.
