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

A bit more help?

I know this thread is over a year old, but am hoping someone will revisit it for me. I've paid my dues with a piece of scalp, three busted knuckles, and and hour of contorted, upside down labor - - how in hell do you get the damn coil spring off to start with? Does it take some tool I've never seen before?

as you can see in my first picture, I just took a flat head and pried it out on the side of the coil spring where it goes into the hole.

** careful when it does come out because it has a lot of kinetic energy.

Ya you just line up and start prying. Use of gloves and protective eye wear is recommended. I remember a bit of pucker factor prying the spring out

HI,
I highly recommend removing the entire clutch pedal assembly. once outside it's pretty easy to replace the plastic shims/bushings. The mounting studs go through the firewall and also the master cylinder. It sounds like extra work, but believe me it's the way to go. I tried popping the coil while it was under the dash too, I couldn't do it.

Awesome!

Glad it worked out. I can't believed I lived so long with that noise before doing this.

How does the pedal feel now?

Pedal is much better; feels "right," for lack of a better description.☺️

Not pressed:


Depressed:


No contact on the pedal assembly cross brace (as expected). Minor contact on the torsional spring tab.

yes, sir. As does both brake pedal springs.

Possible other options to solve include grinding the tab down a little or getting a 4Cyl clutch pedal.

hmmm I don't think I've had that problem on my truck. I wonder if the clutch pedal assemblies are different.
