I have that same squeek. It seems to be coming from the inside where the fork is. I used a pipe as a super ear... I hate that damn noise. Seems to go away around VOL 40 on my headunit.

I hate that squeaky sound. I'm going to have to put a fist load of grease into that rod. Thanks for the helpful posts.

FOR ALL WITH THIS PROBLEM, do not use WD-40. It dissolves away quickly so its only a temporary fix. Instead, buy WHITE LITHIUM GREASE as it does not dissolve for a very very long time.

I pulled the cover out of the tranny near the back and applied grease all inside there. I also covered pretty much everything there was that was visible. Maybe i just got lucky but I figure as long as you get all the important places then the noise will stop...eventually

Well, here's my steps on how to fix it

How to fix some minor clutch squeak and feel your clutch pedal smoother than ever


1)Located slave cylinder (front of transmission....just look straight down to the right of the upper radiator hose)


2)The yellow is just another spot I put grease on (it's where the slave cylinder rod comes out and pushes on the clutch fork.
3)Pull back on the rubber boot lined with red by pulling the little flap circled in red
4)You will see a metal arm reaching into the transmission (the clutch fork)
5)Get some high temperature bearing grease on your finger and apply it to that arm as far as your finger can reach into the housing.
6)Get someone to pump the clutch a few times and then hold it in all the way
7)you will see it move to the right and allow you to apply more grease to the other side of the fork (MAKE SURE THEY HOLD THE CLUTCH OR YOU'LL PINCH YOUR FINGER!)
8 )Make sure you cover all sections of the fork your finger can reach
9)replace the boot and start the car
10)give the clutch pedal a few pushes and then feel the difference


My clutch springs back quickly and MUCH smoother than stock ever did. I love the new feel of it
Would multi-purpose lithium grease work? It's the one in the can not the spray version

I've had the same problem with mine and tried just about every type of grease I can get my hands on. Overall white lithium seems to do the best, while WD-40 just dries up and the noise is back in about a day. Web posted some great pics and descriptions as to where you need to apply grease. I've got one additional trick that worked great for me.

I'm not entirely sure which fluid is routed through the slave cylinder (probably tranny fluid), but I noticed there's a bleeder bolt on there (in Web's first pic it's toward the left side pointing out towards the fan). Mark the top of the bolt with a sharpie, then loosen 1-2 turns, pump the clutch a few times slowly, tighten 1-2 turns, pump, repeat about 5x returning the bolt to it's original position. I also used the little red straw we all hate that comes with those types of cans and sprayed a little white lithium on either side of the fork incase any of the noise was coming from the throw-out bearing. I've been squeak-free for about a year now. Hope this helps with one of the many squeaks that come with being a tC owner.

I need to do this, mine doesn't really bother me though because I only notice it when my music is off and the car is idling. Other than that the exhaust usually drowns the sound out

[Solution] You guys are taking this way to far haha it's actually really basic and easy to fix/resolve. I have an 08 scion tc, which used to have the same issue as you all, however i recently fixed it as so: When you park your car, i pull up the ebrake, turn the car off, and then i PUSH DOWN THE CLUTCH then put it into gear to act as a second ebrake. I used to just not push down the clutch when the car was off and i put it into gear, however it seems like that was the problem. I've tested this 100's of times, havent had the squeaky clutch for over 4 months now. :D If you drive a stick, and this worked for you, feel free to quote it, and give it a bump! Good luck out there!
