Hello all!

I've suddenly developed a creaking clutch pedal. Has anyone else experienced this??

I've been on my hands and knees under the dash and tried some WD40 here and there but no better.

Any ideas anyone????

Had this on & off for ages with my GT, being looked at by my garage but the solution lasting only a few weeks. But now has been fine for some months since Monza did with some other work. Not sure exactly the solution, I'll ask next time I speak to them, will be soon. So if you have not sorted by then I'll post the reply.

Hi.

Mine did the same also but much worse after the clutch pedal recall! When fitting the new clip/pin the dealer told me the clutch cylinder needed replacing under warranty. Guess what. New cylinder= bye bye creaking. Get it checked! I recon the clutch judder has all but gone. ( they all do that sir. 147 loan car 1500 miles clutch juddered).

Happy days.

Nick.

Sort of on the same subject.....just ;)

Can anyone tell me what this white plastic device :confused: switch :confused: is...... It's at the top of the clutch lever mechanism...

When the clutch is depressed...a small section of the plastic is pushed into the larger cylinder body....

What the hell is it's purpose ??????

:confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

hi all,
here's my first post after following many of these real useful threads - so thanks!

Had my GT for couple of years and the intermittent creaky clutch used to drive me mad.

Recently it seemed to be louder than ever and pretty permanent so needed sorting, the next step was a Selespeed conversion!!!!!

Sprayed all linkages, spring etc as i'd been doin for months and still no luck...previously been told by a number of specialists that it was a design fault in the bushes around there and just have to live with it...

so...got down on the floor and moved the clutch with my hand, trying to feel the source of the vibration rather than hear it and traced the problem to the cylinder that the clutch presses into.

SOLUTION

- Take off the rubber cap, depress clutch with your hand and spray in white grease with the extension spray applicator, (wd40 may work also but white grease thicker and seems to last) continue to spray while moving clutch in and out.
As i was doing this I could feel the grinding creaky noise disappear and the clutch movement get lighter - silent for a month now and much lighter when driving

Really happy to have solved the only gripe with my GT

Hope this sorts yours too

How on earth do you get to this rubber cap though? The driver's seat doesn't really go back far enough and I've tried to use a torch and a mirror to see what I'm doing. I suppose I'll have to get a camera under there and take a picture - also, what is this white grease you used? Thanks.
