Throwout bearing might be going bad.

Throwout bearing most common squeak, also thrust bushing but doubtfull. I have a squeak in my clutch pedal but it is the cheap plastic master cylinder.

No you will cause yourself much heartache if the throwout bearing seizes up.

So the jeep got rained on yesterday and when I got in to fire it up I immediately noticed no squeak from the clutch. It just sat in the rain for a couple hours, hadn't even driven it yet and the squeak was gone. I normally don't drive it when it rains because I don't keep the top on at all in the summer and the kids don't like getting wet. So I didn't notice it till now that when it's wet, no squeak. I hope thats good news, but don't know. What do you think it is? One thing I didn't mention before was that it would squeak with the engine off, even the tiniest touch to the pedal and you could get a squeak, no real pressure applied. Any thoughts?

Did you find out what it was? My clutch is squeaky to, but I havent noticed it not squeaking when its raining or not. I happend to look at the clutch pedal and noticed a little leaking of DOT3, so looks like Ill be replacing the master cylinder soon. Im figuring that the leak is whats causing the squeak. I hope its that and not a throw out bearing

Glad to know I'm not the only one with this squeaky issue! I bought a 2000 TJ in June and about a month later this horrendous noise came about when ever I pressed the clutch pedal. Ignored it for a bit but as we all know, it's quite annoying!! My friend said he'd help me out and thought it was the pressure plate. So 2 days, and many bruises later, I have a new clutch. But guess what? I still have a squeak!!! I'm beyond frustrated over it and now we are thinking its the clutch fork which would require us to go back into the transmission and that was such a project last time!! Any other suggestions? No possible way it's as simple as the pedal itself??

squeky clutch wrangler yj 1994 master-slave

I've had this problem developing over time. it start with an occasional squeak and progressively gets worse. for 2 weeks now the clutch squeaks almost all the way the pedal is depressed. Mine is a 94 yj with master-slave cilinder. In my case the slave cylinder was making noise and i decided today to pull it out and check the slave cilinder inside. After pulling the dustcap which holds the rod that makes the linkage slave piston to throwout bearing. I saw that there was a plastic cup inside that slides up and down the slave housing and is lubed with some white grease??? because my yj is almost 20 years old some things will eventually dry out and loose it's smoothnes. so i figured that would be the problem causing the squeak. i first got the WD-40 and sprayed a little bit with the straw?? between the plastic cup and housing. not to much just enough to surconference?? the cup. after that i pushed down the cup into the slave cilinderhousing (beware that some brake oil can come out of the reservoir up top). after a few good pushes i already noticed improvement of the squeak. i then got some plane grease and coated my middle finger halfway and while pushing down on the cup i rotated the grease on the inside of the housing. with the grease halfway on the finger this will place it on the housing where the cup will pass over. the wd-40 left will make it more weaker thus greasing better and will also support getting the grease a little furter down the slave cilinder housing. after this i reinstalled the slave cilinder and voila no more squeaky clutch hope this will help someone with the same problem.
