    Too late... my OCD will never let me not hear this. Even if I have headphones on.

    More importantly I don't want the bastard to prevent the pedal from releasing.

    I tried adding a circle to the culprit but photobucket is being a b*tch and not letting me save the edited image.

    But I think you see it, right? It's the black metal piece with the notch, that is attached to that axle (of sorts) covered in orange goop

    yeah I see it. I'm not sure what you could do to fix it.
    well I just went out to check mine. (first time in probably a year) and noticed that mine hits it too. and also something strange. the spring looks stretched up until that point where it looks like it hasn't been used even when the spring is depressed. (like there is a small gap between the coils of the spring but when it gets to that part the coils are all touching. [this is when the clutch is depressed and released as well])
    :confused:

    Interesting. Post a pic when/if you can.

    That spring you used (at least in the OP) looks like it has way too many coils IMO.

    I just wrapped it in gaffer's tape.

    Still making a little "click/tick" noise. I don't think that hitting the spring was it. It's something in the mechanism that goes through the firewall.

    I think he's talking about the "not feeling the clutch engage" issue.

    Yes I was talking about the squeak and the feel of the clutch engaging. I think it's my slave cylinder? Idk

    It still squeaks?

    Other than a tiny "tick" (from the notched welded tab hitting the linear spring) mine is silent.

    Yeah it still squeaks. And I still can't feel when the clutch engages. Could it be my slave cylinder?

    It's been like that since I got it. It engages I just can't feel it
