Default Annoying Clutch Pedal Squeak

My 2005 WRX with less than 350 miles developed a very annoying squeak at the bottom of the clutch stroke. It was driving me nuts. I crawled under the dash and finally found that it was the switch for clutch disengagement (the upper switch). I removed the switch, took it apart, greased the plunger, put it all back together and now the squeak is gone.

I thought I would share this in case anyone else has this problem.

Seems to be a pretty common problem. My new 05 squeeks too. Hope they can fix it when I take it in for the first oil change.

Sure.
1) Locate the offending plunger type swith. Push the driver's seat back as far as it will go, and lay on your back looking up at the clutch pedal pivot area. Using a flashlight, look up as you depress the clutch pedal with your hand - you will see the switch that is activated by the clutch pedal when the clutch is fully dis-engaged.

2) Unplug the switch.

3) Using a 14mm open end wrench, loosen one of the nuts holding the switch in place (there are 2 nuts that jam against a bracket to hold the switch in place). This step is a PITA, but you will eventually get it.

4) After removing the switch, take it apart. You will need to VERY carefully release the clip on each side of the end of the switch. Be careful not to loose the spring inside the switch.

5) Lube the inside of the switch, staying away from the electrical contacts. I used some brake caliper synthetic grease since it has a hig drop point and it does not tend to liquify like some conventional greases.

6) Reverse the above process for re-assembly.

I hope this help.

that or you can get it replaced at the dealership. SOA released it as a faulty switch. I got mine replaced and hasn't done it since.
