Re: Squeeky Clutch Pedal
After removing the clutch pedal, I believe the screeching sound is due to a mis-alignment of the clutch cable clevis and the arm it hooks on to. This arm can be positioned at many angles due to the splines on it and the pedal shaft. I am going to look at it again tonight and try to determine if the arm needs to move one or two splines either way. Of course the cable will have to be adjusted again...
FYI, the pedal shaft has a nylon bushing at each end which should not require much if any lubrication. It is a pretty good design overall--no metal to metal wear unless your bushings have been destroyed. The only place for grease would be on the cable clevis/arm joint.
The noise seems to be at the firewall where the cable comes out of the rubber grommet of the outer housing. I think the arm is either slightly pulling up or down on the cable as it pulls it out, causing the noise. The screeching is probably the cable rubbing on the grommet.
