Sqeek when pressing clutch


Recommended Posts

You don't want to use WD40. It's a very common misconception that WD40 is a lubricant. It's not . It's a Water Displacer (hence, the "WD" in the name). That said, it will lubricate for a short while until it evaporates.

Like someone else said, when you find the sqeak, use a lithium lubricant.

TSB 1/99 3005 Boost Spring for Clutch Pedal -- dated 3-25-1999 states:

"As of October 12, 1998 production and the following VINs, the boost spring and clutch pedal have been

optimized for minimal operational noise.

99 0XS 62 4135 Coupe

If your car falls into this catagory then the following should be replaced: Clutch pedal, Boost spring bracket, Boost spring (spring painted purple), Optimol, Optitemp LG 2 grease.

If the noise is coming from within the bellhousing, it may be caused by a defective actuator lever. There is also a TSB issued for this. The noise itself if not a problem, but as the clutch wears, the bad lever can cause the release bearing to hang up for a few seconds when releasing the clutch pedal causing the clutch to slip momentarily.

There is a new lever designed and used now. If there is no slippage and the noise is not too annoying, replacement can wait til clutch is replaced. Parts cost approximately $50.

I am sorry to bring this topic up again, but I have a similar noise and it drives me crazy! The noise comes from the bellhousing. The problem in my case is that the clutch was replaced 6 months ago, so I cannot really wait until a new clutch is required to fix the noise. Could the noise be caused by a mistake during the new clutch install? Should my Porsche dealer fix this for free or will they charge for the work?

IF your car is a 99 or an early 00, and the shop that replaced you clutch did not replace the actuator lever, then, they should pull the tranny and do so, free of all labor charges. The parts are about $50. Shops and dealers should make themselves aware of any and all TSB's when performing work. I had a local shop replace my clutch and forgot to replace the actuator. Clutch slippage and noise occured. I didn't even ask them to do so, but they dropped the tranny and repaired it properly at no charge to me.

If a Porsche dealer did the work, then they do not have a leg to stand on and will fix it for you free.

My car is a 03 so I guess there are no TSBs the dealer should have carried out. What I was wondering is whether I have the noise because of something the dealer did wrong during the clutch installation, or whether the two are completely not-related.

I had this issue on my '01 Boxster and it was fixed by using silicon spray. I can't remember exactly where the spray went, and it was really tough trying to find the linkage points with my face under the dash. It fixed the problem permanently, though.

Now I'm starting to hear it on my '04 S...so I'm going to do the same thing soon.

Unfortunately the noise comes from under the car, not under the dash. I suspect getting to the point that needs lubricating will need a lot of work ($$) which is why I am trying to figure out whether I have the noise because of something the dealer did wrong during the clutch installation, or whether the two are completely not-related (in which case I will have to pay for the work).

If the clutch was just changed by the dealer, they owe it to you to resolve the noise, even is they have to yank the tranny again. The installer is responsible for inspecting al related componants for proper operation. Don't be shy...go back and demand that they fix it.
