Default Clutch Line Lubrication

Hey guys i searched for this issue but couldn't find an answer. Seems to me like a simple solution but i wanna run it by you guys.

So I hear a squeak every time i step on the clutch pedal. The noise is coming from the front of the car not the pedal so i assume its the clutch line thats under neath the tmic.

is it a simple i get grease and take of the tmic to lubricate it?

at idle i dont hear any squeaking its just when im pressing on and off the clutch pedal and im certain its not the pedal.

Also what kind of lubrication should i use?

thanks in advance for any help! all is appreciated!

The clutch line is hydrolic just like your brake lines. There is no lubrication needed. The sqeaking could be the release fork or throw out bearing. The fork requires grease per the service manual. Try searching in the transmission/drivetrain subforum for solutions.

I believe there is a silent recall on this.. The fire wall was made too thin/weak in the MC location and it flexes under the hydraulic loading from the clutch pedal/MC.

A brace similar to the ones for the brake MC will work or reinforcing the fire wall welding in plate 4x4-5x5 that the MC bolts through will stop the flexing.

Its a simple hydraulic hose. There is nothing to squeak in the line.
