Is the noise down by your foot - or is it back by the engine?

Hi Loren,

I hear it strong below the car, almost below where I seat, that happens only when I use the clutch, like something metallic that needs grease.

The clutch system is hydraulic - so there is nothing but fluid below where you sit.

Do a search here for oiling or lubricating the clutch spring on the clutch pedal.

I tried my car doing a strong sprint from Zero, and no problem at all, it shifted to all gears up & down. Driving slow I hear a dragging noise from the clutch pedal, every time when I push it and release it, also when I arrive to my home, I ask my Son to push the clutch and only when the pedal was in, I heard a noise from the clutch in the engine compartment.

Might be the release bearing. (throwout bearing)

Apparently the main source of noise is the Clutch power spring or helper spring that needs to be greased (located behind the clutch pedal), but yes the clutch is beginning to make some vibration, does not give any problem while shifting. Do you think that since is not grabbing or slipping, I will be able to run on my next DE, and just wait for the clutch to wear more for me to change it?

Do you recommend any stage 2 or 3 clutch with or without HP Pressure plate for daily driving and occasional DE track driving?

Do you know, which is the grease that goes in the clutch power spring (helper spring)?
Silicone spray only.

Thanks Loren!

When is time to change my clutch, what do you recommend for daily driving and occasional DE track?.

Usually when the clutch wears out the pedal will get very hard.

My last Porsche had 135,000 miles including lots of track time - and it still did not need a clutch.

Great!, so the clutch is more long lasting than I expected. I think I will follow your advice, put some silicone spray on the clutch pedal area, and forget about the light vibration on the back, probably that is normal, since my car is shifting right, just the noise on the pedal that probably will disappear. Thanks!! :renntech:
