Default How to fix squeaky clutch pedal?

Hi everyone,
I have a 02WRX with 3500 miles on it. As of lately, when I press the clutch pedal, I hear squeaking. I tried spraying white lithium grease by the spring at the top of the clutch pedal under the dash, but that did not help. Is that a common thing? Does anyone know what exactly is causing this and how to fix it? I would feel silly to go back to the dealer and complain about this, but if there is no other way, I will. Can someone help me?

Thanks
Danny

I had this problem on my 2.5RS. It turned out to be the throwout bearing squeaking on the shaft. Some lubricant sprayed in there fixed the problem.

Ok, does the tranny have to be removed in order to get to the throw out bearing? Where is it?

Well, somebody with more experiance will prolly correct me, but it appears that its kind of a PITA to get to (AKA in the clutch assembly). At least judgeing from this web page (yeah I know it's for a ford, but it should give you an idea, right?).

Anyway, hope this was helpful.

Did you try doing a search? I've posted the probable solution to this problem many times. For most people, the squeaking clutch is due to a squeaking slave cylinder.

The Slave cyclinder is located on the driver side of the transmission underneath the airbox (intercooler for you WRX owners). It's just reward of the engine. Slide the boot off and have somebody press and hold the clutch. Rub axle grease all over the shiny piston (I use mobil 1 synthetic grease.... it's really cheap). Slide the boot back over the cylinder housing and the squeak should be gone (unless, of course, it IS your throwout bearing).

I remember on Ravensblade's Impreza page there was something about fixing the clutch squeak...

I have it too. But other than the annoying noise, is it harmful for the car in any way if I just leave it as is? I don't like taking apart the car unless I have to.

Question

Do you have the all weather mats? Mine tend to slide up and I know it's time to pull them back when my clutch pedal squeaks...

Nah, I got the regular mats that come with the car- not the rubber ones. I checked, and the mat is not even close to getting up there...

Thanks anyway

Try simpler, first. It's good that you already tried grease, but give it another go. That's what it usually is. Kind of a low-pitched creaking noise? Almost guaranteed to be the pedal, not the clutch.

Try WD-40. Works for me.

I'll bump this up to the top with a kudos to the people that came up with this answer. I just tried it on my 2.5RS and it has stopped almost all of the squeak. I'll give it some more time and I think it will stop all of the squeak.

Thanks for the info!!!

Dan- One of the guys at www.clubwrx.net mentions that his squeak was due, according to the dealer, the clutch travel switch..............whatever that may be.

You know, I'll have to call the dealer to have them check this out... Since I tried a few times with spray grease (the one made by Worth that comes out as a liguid and turns into grease in a few minutes) and had absolutely no success with. This sucks.... Well, not that much- I can always put the radio louder- thats what I used to do when I had my Mustang GT, that thing rattled like no other car I ever rode in.

I'm having the same issue on my 08 wrx sti. I've found out that the welds that hold the clutch brake assembly in place fail and there is a kit it drill them out and use bolts instead it's humble rumble.... I think... I'm not sure if it'll be the same for an 02 but possibly

This thread is from 2002 and is about the GD-chassis clutch noise.
