Clutch Noise

Noticing a sqweel when clutch is pressed in, only happens at start up and lasts about five minutes or so thens goes away, has this happened to anyone else before. Also does anyone know if they upgraded the clutch on the 09's ?

Squealing sound from the clutch usually indicates a problem with the throwout bearing. The dealership should cover this under warranty, the clutch is a wear item so you have until 36k miles to get it fixed.

Also could be the master cylinder...

I have a squeek when i press mine in. I can only hear it when the engine is not running. How can I fix this PB blaster or WD 40?

^^ Check your fluid first. If that is ok, lube the cable w/grease of some sort (not gobs)

I'd second the throwout bearing suggestion.


My 07 WRX does the same thing, I'd search around a bit, apparently there is a return spring in the clutch actuation assembly that can be lubed up to quiet this.

I'd do it to my own, but it's just going to start squeaking again anyhow, and it doesn't hurt anything in the mean time...

I have the exact problem in my 07 with 25k. Annoying in the morning but goes away after a few minutes (when the car warms up). It seems to be worse on humid mornings, which we have no shortage of in FL. There does not seem to be deteriorating performance of the clutch though...

Under constant pressure

Thanks for the ideas everyone. Weird thing is it went away for a couple weeks then the past three days same thing. Right at start up and when I am letting the clutch out SQEEEEL. Guess I have to take it back to the dealer.
