I have this click as well, but it's gotten to the point where I'm just used to it.

However, that being said, my clutch pedal started to develop a more pronounced pop/crack sound in the first 1cm or so of travel. This happens at random times and when I press the clutch from neutral position.

Bought my 08 WRX (40K miles) about 4 months ago, and noticed more of a popping than a clicking noise developed after about 3k of my miles driven. Also, the brake pedal would move when I pressed the clutch so I knew the problem was more serious based on reading others posts here. Took the car back to the dealer and found out that a weld on the assembly had failed.

Car was in the shop for about a week and a half while they ripped out the interior and re-welded the assembly. I ended up paying just $200 (instead of $2500-3000).

Definitely take your car in if you are having the more serious popping noise. Subaru seemed to own up to the manufacturing issue pretty fast without much back and forth...even with my buy being a used car and 40k miles in when I brought the problem to their attention.

I have a 2011 wrx with 22500 miles. The clutch, TO bearing, flywheel and pressure plate were all replaced at 21200 miles after the clutch failed..

I have the same issue with the clutch feelig sloppy and notchy when going from a stop about to engage into first gear. I took my car into the dealer after i started feelig this and they said the clutch was fine even went for a drive with the lead mechanic and he said it was fine. Now it has taken me a month to get used to this clutch so its not acting so notchy now but when other people that own wrx drive it they cant get it to shift smoth out of first at a stand still.. If someone has the conplete solution and problem fixed by dealer please post in here.. Ill keep bugging the **** out if the dealer till this issue is fixed.

I am also starting to develop the clutch click poppin sound.. I check out whats going on with that tomorrow.

Just brought home my new WRX. Got it with 7 miles, its now parked with 72. I've been driving a Sentra for the past 7 years and boy does this thing book it. I've noticed that the shifter is a little "loose". The biggest problem I had was going from 2nd to 3rd gear, when you try to guide the shift knob it keeps trying to go to 5th. I changed my shift style to just pop it straight up without guiding and it'll go to 3rd smoothly. Aside from that its very clunky, I was playing with the BRZ's shifter in the showroom and that thing was tight and as smooth as butter. Reminded me of an RSX shifter that I played with at an autoshow when they first came out. Am I just getting used to the shifter or is it really this clunky? Would a short throw shifter make a big difference? Any suggestions?

Yes and Yes. It is clunky. If you don't have the short throw, that will help a lot. These shifters are nothing like a Honda shifter. You will get used to it.

SOA repaired this for me under warranty. It took a while, though, since the dealer first diagnosed it to be the clutch pedal assembly. When the clicking/popping sounds persisted after replacing the clutch pedal assembly, the dealer/SOA replaced the master cylinder as well. Fortunately, I was given a loaner from Enterprise for the waiting time.

i see a decent amount of play on the rod connecting to the clutch pedal. i lubed that up a bit more. we'll see if it did anything. may have to put some spacers on either side so it doesn't slide on the mounting bolt.

Just wanted to give an update to this old thread if people are still wondering about the click. My click is still there after 2.5 years of driving. It comes and goes. No noticeable problems with the clutch otherwise.

Mine has been clicking 100% since a month or two after the MC was replaced in spring 2011. I believe it is the clutch/brake/cruise switch. I have a spare switch and the switch makes the same clicking sound when you push the button it. You could removed the two cruise switches from the clutch and brake, but I just live with it.

I got underneath to take a look. I see/hear the click from the switch and about 1cm after the switch clicks it makes a pop/clunk noise. I have a 2012 with 12k. I'm gonna take it as soon as I get a chance. Outside of the noise everything feels fine.

What is strange to me is that I see a bunch of folks saying they started hearing this noise around 40K miles. I just recently turned 40K on my 2012 wrx. I just started getting this noise randomly with the clutch. Its almost like chatter, but everything still seems to function correctly.

Note: I did just add a FMIC and had a coupler pop off at high boot cause the engine to shut off. I'm not sure if I cause some damage when this happened, but the noise did become more apparent after the incident.
