crunching sound/feel from clutch pedal

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

This afternoon I noted that I have a crunching sound coming from the area of the clutch pedal when I depress it. The clutch pedal also requires somewhat more pressure to depress it. It feels like something is binding in a chattering fashion.

The sound is not a squeak. It is a deeper sound, almost hollow sounding.

I suspect will have to take the car in for service.... but are there any suggestions as to what the problem might be?

There is a TSB that covers "Scratching or scraping noise" where they rework (file down) the scraping portion of the upper pedal. Your car should have a newer pedal that isn't supposed to do that though... hmmm.

There is also some mention "Squeaking and binding" of both the boost spring sticking and/or the clutch master cylinder sticking which just requires some special lubricant. Worse case they should replace the pedal assembly.

Loren's right as usual!

At less than 500 miles, I took my '03 car (built 2/26/03) in for a squeaky, binding clutch and a rather"slow" return. The dealer replaced the whole clutch pedal assembly with a new spring and lube. After this repair, the clutch is good. My car was in for two days but the dealer gave me an '03 Boxster during this time -- A pretty fun car.

Hopefully yours will be an easy fix too.
