Noticed lately that my clutch squeaks pretty badly from the underside of the truck. It doesn't do this all the time, but when I have noticed that its squeaking the truck is warmed up. From a stop, it squeaks when I start to press the pedal down and then squeaks on the way back up. Is this something that I can throw some WD on or do I have a bigger problem lurking? Truck still drives fine.


Its an 04 4x4 v6 if it makes any difference

uh

ok thers this little pain in the ass bushing, it wears out. you have to take out the whole pedal assambly and disassemble the pedal assembly. its tricky cause the spring thats in there has a good amount of pressure on it. dont get your finger in there.

dont make me get a link damn it.

it could be the pedal bushing issue but, their is also the squeak from the slave cylinder that is pretty common. from your description of "under" the truck, it seems like that would more than likely be it. you can pull the rubber boot aside a little and spray a little lubricant in there to quiet it down some.
also, back on the bushing thing, you can use WD40 or similar but it is better to use a heavier white grease. it will last much longer and do a much better job of keeping them quiet.
good luck.

Custome Tacos.com has a page titled "Replace Your Clutch Pedal Bushings" If after reading you decide it's too involved then spray the squeaky spring with a lithium based
lube. Work the clutch pedal till the squeak stops. This is not a permanent fix but will hold till the squeak starts again . Bob
