One click came back so I've put even more in. Tried the reclined seat forward somersault with a back flip method and it was a lot easier! Defo easier 2nd time when you know exactly where you're aiming. The click has gone completely this time so fingers crossed.

As to how much I used.....about half the 50g tube if not more. Its a cheap fix for what can be a really irritating noise.

I found my clicking was mainly coming from the spring behind the pedal. Loads of grease all over it now, the creaking has gone and the pedal is loads lighter to press again now.

I found that my clicking and groaning noise was because one of the nuts which holds the clutch pedal braket and master cylinder had worked itself so loose that the nut nearly fell off on its own :blink:

For sure worth a look.

Looking around the forum, this problem affects the 7th and 8th Gen.

Including my 8th gen.

 

Are the Master Cylinders the same on the 8th, the reason I ask is that I can not see the 2 holes in the washer as mentioned.

I am about to purchase the recommended grease and a plastic syringe and tubing but I am not too sure where to put the grease.

 

I see the plunger going in but no holes to insert the tube ?

 

Attached is a video of the part in question in my car

The tube goes between the two slots of the plunger. Pretty sure they are different on each car

Forgive me, I am still a little confused...

 

All I am seeing is a hole (more of a rectangle shape) with a plunger behind it.

the plunger goes in and out, what slots are we talking about.

 

Do I just push the plunger down and squeeze the grease in, I assume not and it has be behind the plunger (so it does not just squirt back out).

 

I was under the impression that the plunger had a hole in which the grease tube when into, thus putting the grease behind the plunger

 

(PS - there is a replacement cylinder on eBay for £68)

Sorry for a comment on an old post but my car has the dreaded clutch pedal squeak.

 

It doesn't actually annoy me that much (at the minute!).

 

If you don't lubricate it or try to sort it out, Is anything likely to break and cost loads of money? Or is it just a case of having to put up with the sound?

Mines been creaking for years, it probably will affect the seal eventually, but so far so good. I will grease it up soon, though I must do a fluid flush on it first.

the creak is from 2 places sometimes it the clutch pedal, the clutch master cylinder or both. The easy way to find is to disconnect clutch pedal and push master cylinder rod and if that is smooth look for cracks around the clutch pedal. Also a flush of fluid will help, i repleaced my master cyclinder with second hand pedal and flushed fluid never heard a squeak or creak again.

Reviving an old thread... my newly bought has developed this issue. Any chance of some new pictures as the photobuckets ones are not available due to their self-company killing policy

just a follow up on the dreaded clutch master cylinder whilst grease is temporary fix i have upgrade to k tuned clutch master cylinder, slave cylinder with braided hose and not looked back. Read article from k tuned below:

 

The DC5, EP3 and CL9 all have a known issue with their factory clutch master cylinders (CMC). If you look at the CMC on these cars more closely you'll notice that all of these models have a triangular shaped feedback plate positioned at the very end of the cylinder. This plate is basically a secondary valve that was designed to slow down the clutch engagement and reduce shock to the clutch itself and the surrounding drivetrain parts. This setup might be perfectly fine for people that just drive their cars for simple daily use but the delayed engagement can cause wear to the synchros and possibly even the gears on performance applications. The reason is fairly simple the factory CMC delays the clutch operation so it does not open fast enough to keep up with a fast shift. This means that pressure is being applied to the transmission synchros during the shift before they are ready for the actual gear change.

The K-Tuned Clutch Master Cylinder Upgrade Kit was designed to completely replace the original factory cylinder and offer real time clutch engagement to support faster shifting. We have put together a complete bolt-on kit that includes a direct replacement CMC our high pressure 3AN clutch line plus all of the necessary fittings needed for installation. The factory clutch fluid reservoir is reused and connected the same way it was in stock form. The only thing we suggest is checking out your slave cylinder on the trans to confirm it is leak free. Aside from that installation is pretty simple install the parts and bleed the system using some new clutch fluid.
