I replaced the clutch spring with a OEM brake sping 2 to 3 months ago. Super easy, just pry out the stupid coil spring and hook up a brake spring.Takes 10 min. I used a OEM brake spring . I checked it yesterday and it is working fine. Clutch feels fine, good pedal feel.

Smile Squeaky/ Clutch pedal does not come all the way to top

My clutch pedal was not coming all the way up. it would stop about a half inch from top and I would also hear a definite spring creak sound when using the clutch pedal. The toyota dealer I brought it to looked at it and bleed the master and slave clutch cylinders and told me they would need to replace the master cylinder ie another $150 on top of the $80 charged to diagnos the problem. I did not agree. I could tell it was something connected to the clutch spring. Attached is the diagram of the clutch pedal linkage under the dash. I ORDERED AND replaced the little plastic "U" shaped shim 31301P that rides between the clutch pedal return spring and the clutch rod arm seen in the diagram. The part cost $3.18. I replaced it myself by removing the entire clutch assembly from the fire wall. Wasn't too bad, but if you show a mechanic the diagram and part they can do it for $100 or so. THIS LITTLE PLASTIC SHIM FIXES THE SQUEAK AND THE CLUTCH NOT RETURNING TO TOP. CLUTCH PEDAL WORKS LIKE NEW AS IT SHOULD.

pretty sure that part number does not coincide with Toyota dealerships. But if you just go to the dealership and ask for a brake pedal return spring, you'll get it.

Should be around $2.50 - $3.00

Here's a picture of what it looks like:

BTW Madjikman your clutch pedal looks like it has been brazed with a torch...pretty good looking brazing job if i might say so myself.

From another member (I sent him material for the cup holder tabs, he sent me the spring).

You can get it at the dealer or online. It's like $2.50
