Thumbs up Clutch Sqeaking Problem [Located]

First step in the infamous clutch "squeaking" noise which a LOT of us have been plagued with. I will be talking to the subaru dealer technician tomorrow and see what he can do about it.
The problem I found to be the 'black' thing with a metal small bar coming out of it. almost like a pump. Have someone depress the clutch while u look under the engine compartment and trace the sound. If anyone has any luck with this at their dealer let all of us know!

I did not realize that other people were having clutch squeaking probs ... I just bought a 98RS and I am taking it in to the dealership for them to fix the squeak. Describe that little black box... where is it located? Hopefully they know how to fix it.
I get a squeak near the top end of the clutch, the last inch or so almost all the way out.

What Sev is refering to I think is some sort of actuator for the clutch. The way we identified it on his car is that I had him activate the clutch, while I looked and listend for weird noises in the engine compartment. That is the easiet way to locate the mechanism Sev is refering to. Hey Sev, maybe it would be a good idea to take a pic and post it.

I think you are all correct. I used to have squeaking when the clutch was in the 50%-70% range of depression. It turned out to be the actuating pin on the cylinder (don't know if it is master or slave, but the one mounted to the top of the tranny... slave i believe.)

this is a self-adjusting cylinder, which means that the pin self-centers all the time.

What causes the squeaking, is a lack of lubrication grease on the receiving plate.

My SUbe dealer just added some OEM grease to it and it was all better.
