    so i had a pedal squeak earlier this year, or maybe it was the end of last year i forget. i had my whole clutch assembly replaced out of warranty for a pretty penny. squeak stopped, now its back again. anyone know what part of this assembly actually causes the squeak? i sprayed a couple pivot points with white lithium grease but the sound is still there. and its annoying as hell, its def something rubbing on something else because i can feel it in the pedal.

    I've got the same issue and have had it off-and-on for over a year. It seems to get worse as the weather gets warmer...:confused:

    just posted this about 6 threads down. I think the problem is, since very few people drive manuals, the dealers have no idea how to fix them, and, they get paid much more by Toyota performing bs warranty work than they would if they actually fix the problem since it takes all of 10 seconds. Toyota should just link their customers here:

    I've had the same problem with my 07 since it was only a few months old. The dealer put some grease on the push rod above the pedal, but that only fixes it for a couple days. The squeaks and creaks come back and it drives me insane. I tried turning the push rod a little bit as suggested in that customtacos post, and just like that - the squeak is gone! I've been doing this for a couple years now and it cures the squeak for a couple months at least.

    None yet! It's new!
    There is a push rod above the pedal, that's adjustable for length. At one end of that rod is a plastic piece that presses against a different plastic piece. There is a gap between those parts. You can vary the clearance of the 2 plastic pieces by lengthening or shortening the rod, after loosening the jam-nut. It's sort of a pain because it seems the plastic part is not concentric - it will seem to bind as you tighten it and then loosen, but keep playing with it and you can reduce the gap between the 2 parts.

    I found that reducing that gap AND applying a bit of spray grease in there will really help. I find myself shooting a bit of grease in there about once every 6 weeks or the squeak will return, usually the first time you hit the clutch in the morning and then it will go away......

    Good luck.

    i forgot about this thread. my update: the noise and the sound of it rubbing on something as the pedal is being depressed only goes away for about 3 or 4 days with the method from custom tacos. after that, i need to repeat the method again. annnoyingggggggg
