squeaky clutch pedal

My clutch pedal is making an annoying squeak whenever i push in the clutch.

When I got down into the wheel well (upside down) and checked out the assembly, it looked like the rod that connects to the pedal is rattling around a little bit under the rubber boot, just before it leads into the firewall. Here is a pic:



It also looks like where this small rod meets the pedal rod might be loose,



but the sound really seems to be coming from the area seen in the above pic

Now, if the rod in the top pic is loose, it looks like i need to jack up the front end and get underneath. Any thoughts?

I have a similiar problem, mine clicks when you push it in, I don't know if it always did it, I just noticed it today. Any ideas?

edit: not to hijack your thread or anything... just thought it would be better than starting another one with an extremely similiar topic.

It looks like the push rod need to be adjusted out a little bit, or the bushing wear it clips on the pedal is worn out.

hmmm there is a washer (or two) where the rod connects to the pedal, but they are free-moving right now (no resistance). Is this how they should be?

And how would I adjust the push rod?

there is a plastic bushing in the end of the pushrod where it slips on the pedal check that. I adjust the push rod so you have about an 1/8' play before you feel any resistance from the clutch master cylinder just loosen the locknut on the push rod and turn it. ( like a turnbuckle).

Mine also squeeks for the first 1.5 in. then it stops. I was thinking the connecting rod just needed some oil?

^ Yes that is what mine is like, except it's more of a clicking sound than a squeak...

i also have the same 'click' sound only when depressing the clutch quickly. when i depress slowly it doesn't click. the problem is that it takes so much force to depress the clutch it's not really possible to do it by hand when you're stuck under the footwell trying to figure out where the sound is coming from.

anyway, i thought this diagram would be of some help;

Mine also feels rough until the I feel the resistance of the clutch spring.
I'll be waiting anxiously until somebody posts a SOLUTION to the problem.
I was even wondering if this could be due to partially worn out master cylinder?

#15 on the diagram is the bushing I was talking about.

Ummm better stick with the electronic stuff, Wilkie

...

anyhow, I fixed it. I suppose I would consider it more of a "click" than a "squeak," although there was some squeaking going on



I loosened the nut that connects the screw to the pedal assembly. I assume this screw adjusts the pedal's height? Anyhow, I loosened the nut, and then turned the screw so that it extends further away from the pedal assembly (and thereby making the pedal travel shorter?). This tightened up the whole unit and eliminated the click/squeak sound.

Even though the boot is removed in the picture, you don't need to move the boot in order to do this.

To do this you will need to get upside down, with your head in the footwell. I would recommend reclining the driver's seat all the way before doing so.

i had to replace the spring (4a) and still don't know how i managed to squeeze my hands in there to do that work.

it's a super-tight location and requires some body contortions to get under there in the right position.

porsche yoga, anyone ?

it is tight, but at least you don't have to pull out the jack and jack stands!
