squeeking clutch

So for the last little while my clutch squeeks when depressed. It sounds like it is the linkage. I crawled under and had my wife depress the clutch and I am almost sure it is the linkage. How can a lube it as I can't even see it. Any ideas or anyone else have a similar situation?

Does it squeak WHILE you're depressing it, or while it's depressed? There is a cable and slave cylinder, not really a whole lot to lube.
Throwout bearing comes to mind..
Lay under it (engine off please) and have her run the clutch...all the moving parts should be obvious.

Mine does it...squeaks while you're depressing it.

Bugs the crap out of me, and I'm open to suggestions too!

Only while depressing the clutch. Sounds like the linkage. But can't see it as it is on top of the trans

It's the clutch master cylinder. I'm assuming the "linkage" you are referring to is piston assembly that attaches the clutch master cylinder to the clutch pedal. That can be greased if you can get a needle fitting past the boot but it is a complete PITA just trying to contort your body underneath there. The whole master/slave cylinder assembly is a hydraulic system that runs using the brake fluid.

My 07 did exactly what you are describing and I had to replace the clutch master cylinder. I think it cost $90 including parts and labor but I had a local mechanic do it as opposed to the dealership.

Am I allowed to post links to other Jeep forums? As those are the places where I found all of the disscusstions on replacing/bleeding clutch master cylinders and the reasons they had to replace them.

Basically everyone is describing the same noise as I have and the fix is replacing the clutch master cylinder and bleeding it.

No problem. Removing the cylinder isn't too bad. It attaches to the pedal on a little ball joint. Pop that off and the pedal is free. To get it out of the firewall I think its a quarter turn counter-clockwise. Don't forget the hoses. Pop the new one in in jeep in reverse order and bleed the system. You should be good to go after that.

Before you pull it all apart you might try greasing the pedal return spring under the dash. Quieted mine down.

Is that the big round spring I can barely see?

I've only briefly looked...

Links to other sites are O.K. if the info can't be found here.
Please let us know what you do to fix it and post some pictures of your project!
