noise clutch when car is off?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks;

I have a 1999 Boxster 2.5l

I currently have 65k on this car, and 40k on my engine (my 1st engine blew out at 10k miles as i pulling into my drive way :( )

Either way, i recently noticed that when i step into my car in the morning; if i push down on the clutch before i turn anything on it squeeks. I can hear this noise coming from the rear engine compartment. Is this normal? I don't ever remember it making this noise, but then again i usually turn my car on before i push the clutch in. I don't have any other problems with my car; is shifts smoothly, and reliably every time.

The squeak is coming from the clutch mechanism ( release bearing- diaphragm ) mostly in combination with a hard clutch pedal feeling. Two options: install a new clutch or try live with the squeak.
