Fixed my clutch squeek

    Last week I purchased an '06 2wd 5 speed 2.7L that had a squeek when I depressed the clutch pedal. The noise was coming from the outside at the transmission.

    I figured that this would be an easy fix, and was.

    First, I unbolted the slave cylinder(leaving the hose connected), and set it aside.

    Next, I removed the dust boot from the shift fork.

    Then, I pushed the shift fork towards the front of the vehicle and peered inside.

    What I saw confirmed my suspicion. The noise was coming from a dry and slightly rusty shift fork pivot.

    I borrowed :rolleyes: one of my wife's make-up brushes, and applied a good high temperature grease to the pivot. I made sure to push some into the shift fork cup as well.

    After the lube job, I reinstalled everything and tried the clutch. Quiet as a church mouse.

    I hope this helps.:)

    My squeak was coming from inside the large rubber boot (the one the pink marking is pointing to). Got a can of White Lithium Grease ($3 at Advance Auto Parts) and sprayed it inside there. I took the boot off and sprayed the hell out of everything. It hasn't squeaked in months.
