I have an 09 4x4 2.7 manual truck and just hit 60,000km. I started getting the typical clutch pedal "creak" coming from under the truck by the tranny. It's there and noticeable when it's hot out but not when it's cool/damp. I read up alot on here about people shooting some grease or WD40 at the fork and ball and it fixing the problem for awhile. I figured since my truck is under warranty, let the dealer do it first or let them deny that the creak is even there and then I'd do whatever was necessary to fix it.
So I brought it in yesterday and they called me back a few hours later to pick it up. Long story short, they have to order parts and book it in for next Tuesday. The work order says:
"CLUTCH RELEASE BEARING SQUEAKING ON INPUT SHAFT
MUST REMOVE TRANSMISSION"
So my question is this really necessary? From what I read up on here, dealers were just lubing these. Will a new throw out bearing fix the problem or is it just going to come back and then have to do it all again in another 60,000km?
