    Hello team taco,

    I just want to make sure that i'm not being paranoid but something doesn't seem right.

    I have been driving manuals for 16 years now and haven't heard this type of creaking from a clutch let alone a brand new one.

    My DC TRD Sport only has 1298 Km's on it and today the clutch started to make a creaking sound as it comes up, the best way I can describe it is that it sounds like on old creaky door opening and its loud enough that you can notice when the radio on is on low and feel it vibrate as it creaks under my foot.

    Im not happy right now as the truck wasn't cheap, i'm hoping it just goes away but after reading quite a lot of threads on here it sounds like it has been a issue for many.

    Just wondered if anyone else that owns a 2009 or 2010 has had similar issues?

    Should I take it to the dealer now or wait a few more days to see if it goes away?

    Thanks in advance guys!

    My 2006 has the pedal creaking noise. It goes away as long as I keep it lubed. I do not have any creaking from under the truck.

    The latest development in the ongoing six speed throw out bearing saga points to wear on the clutch fork pivot. If you have a creak under your truck, I would be concerned that the clutch fork pivot is already running dry and wearing down.

    Take it in for sure, at the very least get it documented.

    My '09 did the same. I had to take it in to the dealer twice.
    I think once they grease it up and another time replaced a spring.

    My '07 does the same thing. Now that it's getting hot outside its starting to creak. Its the stupid plastic pedal assembly. Whoever decided that would be a good idea should be fired. Its actually quite embarrassing when people who don't know about cars ride with me because they think my truck is a POS and its only 3 years old.

    I'm gonna lube mine up this weekend with some spray on lithium grease. That usually works for a few weeks then I have to lube it up again.

    None yet! It's new!
    Same thing here on my '09. If you look at the linkage directly behind the pedal, there's a jam nut on a shaft. You'll probably notice that there's a little bit of free play in the pedal before it contacts the plastic fitting on the end of the shaft. Loosen the jam nut and lengthen the shaft until it contacts the pedal. Squirt some lube in there and give that a try. It's kind of a pain to do, but you can do it.

    That sounds like a weird solution - I thought so too, and then I tried it because the squeak was driving be crazy. Before I did that, I was having to lube the pedal every couple of weeks. It's now been nearly 2 months and the squeak has not reocurred. I've heard of other guys doing the same thing with similar luck.

    It would also be a good idea to tell the dealer about it to get it in the record. My dealer heard the squeak and said he'd replace the whole assembly if I wanted... but I'm waiting to see if I've solved the problem first.

    Take it back to dealer and tell them to fix it. It is under warranty and with only 1300 miles, it is unacceptable!

    1200km = 745 miles only which makes it even worse, i paid like 42,000 otd for this truck here in Canada which is not cheap, i'm pretty pissed to have this happen on a new vehicle.

    I contacted my sales guy and he was as suprised as me, he told me to bring it in, so I'll pop in first thing tomorrow morning.

    Thanks team for all the help,advice and support!!!

    Problem is they are just going to keep throwing the same defective part on it. The problem is the stupid Plastic pedal assembly.

    I know that it is a stupid pedal part but they updated my pedal assembly in 07 on my 06' and i have not had any problems since they updated it. I have relubed it once in 3 years and never an issue. Take it to the dealer and tell them the clutch is creaking and you feel it in your foot every time you depress the clutch and you want it looked at or changed. You feel that you have a defective assembly. If the dealer doesnt replace it i would take it to another dealer for a second opinion.

    same thing happens with my '08...i find that if I use some WD-40, I get about 3 months before it squeaks again.

    I had this happen on my 2010. The dealer replaced my clutch assembly and the damn thing is squeaking again. I'm not sure if I want to take it back to the dealer for them tell me they can't do anything else.

    There is no need to take it to the dealer, it took me all of 6 seconds to fix the annoying-as-hell squeak. I realize a new truck shouldn't make any niose, and it is the dealers responibility, but there's no need to be without the truck if not necessary. Here's what to do:

    Haven't had a problem since.

    Excellent referral. Thanks. No more squeak for now. We'll see how long this lasts.

    Well, that didn't work for long. I'm unable to tighten the bolt all the way tight. It seems to tighten up and then get loose again as I'm making the final turns to really tighten it up. I can get the noise to stop for about 15 min then it comes back again.
