Clutch Pedal Clicking (Video)
So the Leg's been making some wierd clicking sound with the clutch pedal.
I would like to post a video of the sound to help out but i dont know how?

Any help in either situation would be great.

I checked underneath and the spring is fine. The hinge is greased I have no clue.

At what part in the travel of the clutch pedal does it occur?

You sure it just isn't the clutch switch?

If I could post the video you could see exactly at what time. I would say its half way. Dont think its the switch.

When you push the clutch, can you feel any resistance when you hear the click?

And what about the clutch feels weird? Is it unusually light and/or feel non-linear?

EPLegacyGT 03-13-2011 05:47 PM

Clutch feels normal. Engages like it normally would. Just the clicking sound that I can kinda feel through the pedal.

If everything is normal, it's most likely the clutch switch for the starter interlock. Get under your dash and try to operate the clutch by hand, or have a friend do it with a bat when you're under there.

Otherwise, it's from the pedal linkage or the master cylinder is sticking a bit. In either case, you should be fine. Just keep an eye on the fluid level, if you start to lose fluid, it'll be from the MC.

You got a pic of this starter interlock switch. Now that you say that my buddy couldnt start the car last week. He would push the clutch the hole way and it wouldnt start. As if youd turn the key without pressing the clutch. Thanks again.

I need to know if this is the slave.

StoplightAssassin 03-16-2011 10:24 AM

It's not the slave. You wouldn't be able to feel any clicking and theres no reason for it to click.

It could be the master cylinder. Have you got under there and looked for the sound while operating the clutch with your hand yet?

I also have this clicking, and everything is brand new, tranny, clutch, slave, just the mc...

I thinl it comes from the depal assembly.. Since I have the click in the brake pedal as well!

My clutch was doing the exact same thing a couple months ago. I was very worried and the noise seemed to get worse. Believe it or not, it went away on its own after about 2 weeks. I have noticed the "click" here and there, but I hear it once, then its gone. Like you, I did a bunch of research on here and cannot find much info, so for now I'm leaving it alone.
