clutch squeaks when depressing

Hi guys, i'm new here and am a proud owner of an 03 s2k.

I bought it used of course.
When i first purchased the car i did not hear the clutch squeak.
Several days later after driving it for 45 minutes in the city, i pulled into my garage and was easily able to hear the clutch sqeak when depressing it.

I can hear it inside the cabin and also loudly outside the car (things are louder in the garage since all sound is reflected).
Clutch seems to operate normally and grips well.

I'm a noob at cars and forums. Please help! thank you!

Yep. Sounds like it's completely done for. I'll start the bidding at $100. Let me know if you prefer cash or money order.

Thank you guys!! On my next off day, I will get to work! Seems like a easy fix. Can anyone loan me a dremel tool? .

Will the dremel scare the hamster away faster?
I'll keep you up to date after the fix.
Thanks guys.

I did what that link said to do.
It worked. thank you guys so much.
I couln't get it to a mirror shine, but i used the finest sant paper and a occilator to smooth all the roughness out and tried to buff it with a microfiber towel on the occilator. ehhhh.
In the end after grease and reassembly, the sqeak is gone.
Clutch feels smoother and easier to depress when shifting 1st to 2nd, 2nd to thrid, etc,
but at a dead stop to first, clutch feels harder to depress and feels rougher.
any thoughts?

It might be your master cylinder. Does the fluid get dirty quickly? Check for a leak coming from the cylinder by the pedal. What kind of grease did you use when re-greasing the slave?

Feel the carpet under the clutch pedal and on top of the dead pedal. If you feel brake fluid then the clutch master cylinder is leaking. Also look at the piston that the clutch pedal connects to, look around the shaft that goes into the cylinder and if it is "wet" then it could be drawing air into the system as well.

Start off bleeding the system and see if that helps http://forums.s2kca.com/showthread.p...ch-fluid-bleed.

If it is leaking for sure then change the master cylinder http://forums.s2kca.com/showthread.p...-How-To-Change . You can buy one at cflhonda.com for $85 plus shipping at least that is what mine cost.

Good luck.

Kevin

Thanks MLC. I just drove my car to Houston and back (700 miles) and on the way home my pedal started to squeak and the pedal was a little soft.
Sure enough, I felt the carpet and my fingers were coated with grease and brake fluid. I will order a new master cylinder and get this thing swapped.
