    Thanks

    if it makes you feel any better, the 05+ do it too... oil/lube doesn't help it either.. if the guys are under warranty they replace the whole assembly.. i don't know if there are any fixes for your body style besides lube..

    good luck

    The sound you're hearing is most likely the release bearing fork, which sits on a round pivot inside the transmission bell housing. Unfortunately there's not much you can do about it unless you remove the transmission to get at it. Mine did it for years before I finally replaced the clutch and was able to lube the pivot joint.

    Mine does the same thing. And I currently have my tranny on the ground. Where exactly do you lube it if you don't mind telling me. somewhere inside the bell housing?

    I had mine replaced on my '07 through my warrenty and it still squeaks when it gets warm. I recommend greasing it.

    What you want to look for is the fork that runs outside of the bell housing. Its what pushes the thrust bearing back and forth. It is held in place by a small spring. When you remove it, you'll see a rounded ball joint looking thing. Its the only thing the fork rests on. I used high quality bearing grease because it is heat and dirt resistant. If I were you and I had the transmission out, I'd replace all of the stuff in there anyway - thrust bearing, clutch, or whatever because the parts are cheap enough, that is unless the clutch is new or has little wear. Might as well do it while you have it apart.

    ohhhhhh.... wait a minute.... this is an 07'? Well mine is a 96. Not totally sure if the fork is the same on the new ones. But if it squeaks when you push it down, it surely has to be either the thrust bearing or thrust fork pivot.

    ^^ Cool man. Thanks for the info. Even though, as you stated, not exactly the same year model, I kinda know what to do now.


    Unfortunately my tranny is down due to "user error" as stated by the service manager. :rolleyes:

    this has been posted a few times on here, but here is the TSB for squeaky clutch peddles for 2nd generations. It has a good diagram of the clutch assembly. I imgaine the 1st generation isn't too much different

    Do you hear it in the cab just above the clutch pedal? Or is it from under/outside the cab? If you hear it mainly from the inside, on my 99 there a few hard plastic bushings that eventually break and leave small bits on the floor board, look up Janster she did a complete write up on it, I'll look and see.

    To me, it sounds like on the inside. But it really only sounds like something WD-40 can fix. I guess not though. :(
