TJ Clutch Creak,Squeak,Nosie Galore *VIDEO*

I love my 2002 TJ, but the clutch is making some pretty annoying sounds. I can feel it in the pedal too.
I am a mechanic, but maybe I've been layed off for too long?

I have this noise (SEE VIDEO) that occurs when I depress the clutch.

I pulled the slave cylinder, and the piston is good to go. The nylon cap on the end of the rod looks real good too. I lubed it up just in case.

I power washed my Jeep the other day, and sprayed up under the inspection cover. The clutch pedal smoothed up, and wasn't making noises for 50 miles or so.

Now it's back. Very annoying. I can feel a rough spot in the pedal as I depress it, and can hear the noise from inside the Jeep.

The problem is NOT in the pedal, or hydraulic system.

Not sure if I really want to wash it thoroughly, as I might spray some of that rear main leakage onto the friction surfaces.




Thanks

Thanks for the help. Haha.

I got it fixed yesterday.



I stole this picture off of Jeeps Unlimited.

The squeak was not coming from where the slave cylinder pushes on (right side).
The noise comes from the pivot stud on the left side. There is a spring that holds the lever tight against the stud. When the spring flexes it creaks and makes other horrible noises.

To fix this. I removed the starter and the slave cylinder. From the slave cylinder side I pulled on the release arm. This popped the spring off and revealed the pivot stud.

Through the starter hole, I sprayed the stud with white lithium grease real good.

Reinstalled and no noises.

The spring is the main problem. You will want to remove it completely.

The spring is there mostly for the assembly part of the Jeep. It holds the lever in place when the slave cylinder is removed.

When the slave cylinder is installed, there is pressure on the bar, so the spring is not needed.

Good luck.

Sorry for bringing this one back from the dead.

I have a couple questions if anyone who reads would be so obliged to help me out.

Is the picture up there of the transmission still mounted in the Jeep?

and

When you unbolt the cover, is there any fluid in there with all of that or is it bare like in the picture?

My clutch pedal just started doing this so I'd like to take care of it.

Any help would be fantastic!

The picture shows the transmission pulled away from the rear of the engine.

There will be no fluid in there. In the picture, that particular Jeep had a leaking rear main seal on the engine.

There is no cover to remove. Remove the starter and slave cylinder, and use a flashlight to look into the housing.

Good luck.

So, this is still an issue with my Jeep and now its REALLY annoying.

So to put this in layman's terms:

I unbolt the slave cylinder

Unbolt the starter (?) (Where is the starter?)

Pull on the release arm through the slave cylinder

And the spring pops off?

then shoot it with grease

Does this sound right?

That's a big 10-4!

Starter is opposite side of slave.

Pm sent...

PeeWee, I sent you a PM, but got it figured out tonight. I followed your write up and was able to get to the spring through the starter hole. All I can say is thanks. That noise drove me crazy. It sounded like an old car door whenever I shifted. Now I have absolutely no noise whatsoever and the clutch is super smooth. I do not feel anything in the peddle either as I did before. Thanks again for the info.
