2012 JK Clicking/Creaking Clutch

I've got a 2012 JK with 36k miles one it. I started developing a clicking noise in the clutch pedal when I depress it. that quickly turned into a creaking/squealing sound in just a couple days. It only happens after i've driven it for a few miles and everything has warmed up. Otherwise when I first start it in the morning and depress the clutch pedal its all smooth.

I've done some searching and some people say its the TOB and some people say its the slave cylinder. I'm leaning more towards the slave cylinder.

Either way I took it to the stealership and they found a TSB on it which advised them to lube the springs... (guessing the one thats in the slave cylinder?) well needless to say two days later its making the noises again.

I'm taking it back in tomorrow as i've got the max care extended warranty. I'm just trying to see if anyone has had this same issue and can comment any further.

Yep. There is a return spring on the clutch pedal that the TSB advises them to lube. If the noise went away after they lubed it and then returned, then that is the noise you are hearing.

Thanks for the Reply.

I took it back to them and they said their transmission tech had 5 vehicles in already. we decided it would be best for me to bring it in this week, that way it would be nice and warm (making the noise) when I got there and they would be able to get it right in. Taking it in tomorrow. will update further after I hear back from them.

Just got the call back from the dealership and they can't reproduce the problem. They say they've driven it for a good 20 miles and still no noise. It was making the clicking sound when I dropped it off but i'm sure it sat for a while before they got to it.

Either way I found this thread: http://www.jk-forum.com/forums/stock...linder-278107/

Seems like its more of an annoyance than anything (which i'm fine with) but I was erring on the side of caution that it could be a bigger problem. If it gets to be too bad, then i'm just going to fix it myself I guess.

bdubnit,

I appreciate you updating with the dealer diagnosis. If the concern worsens, let your Service Manager know. I would recommend taking a dealer representative on a test drive so you can duplicate the concern for them.

Feel free to PM me any additional questions or concerns!
