I've got a really obnoxious noise coming from my clutch pedal, it doesn't tend to be there when I have my foot more than 3/4 down on the Honda Type S 2.2 2008.

My local mechanic briefly took a look and mentioned it could be some ball bearings but probably wouldn't be worth changing, does anyone have any experience or advise?

Thanks

It's usually the pedal pivot bushes that get dry. Plenty of threads on here about it.

Welcome to the Honda Civic and the factory fitted squeaky clutch :grin2: You get used to it after a few year :wink3:

This is quite a common issue with the 8G Civic. WD40 and other lubricants may make the noise go away but it'll sure as S!*t be back at some point.. Didn't bother me after a while and it got to the stage where I didn't notice it.

And you've picked a very nice car, clutch pedal aside :smile3:

There is a permanent fix... My cousin works for honda so he is the one that takes care of my cars... He unmount the cylinder and put some lubricant paste inside of it. Until now never got that sound again. If done properly can be a permanent fix for the noise

My clutch pedal was squeaking really bad, i got rid of it a few times by using gt85 spray, but after a year of putting up with it i thought i'll just have a new master cylinder fitted which cost £300, it was brilliant no squeak, but six months later it's started to come back again.

Just got my car back from the mechanics today and they said aside from the noisy clutch pedal which drove the test driver nuts just going round the block, there was little else wrong. Personally I hardly even notice it anymore so don't even bother with the silicone spray fix now.

To be fair, I found it odd when I changed car as there's no squeak that I'd put up with for 4 years.

My fix was a squirt of decent spray grease (I use motorcycle chain grease) up the pushrod and into the inside of the master cylinder - it's worked for me for the last three years after my father in law put up with it squeeking for 8 years...

I found turning the radio up worked better :wink3:

Yes motorcycle chain grease is thick, sticky and will stay in place.
There was a common issue with the clutch pedal clicking aswell. I had mine changed some 80k ago under warranty and it has been fine since but I will remember the MC grease if it does. Thanks.
