New clutch squeaking noise

Hi everyone, I know a bit about squeaking noises from the clutch, so my question is if I leave it, will the noise every go away? Do I need to get it redone, pulled out again and put backed in? Thanks for your help....

Describe the squeal and when it occurs. It might just be that the preload on your throw out bearing is not set right.

Hi there, happy 4th, the squeak sound is like a wheel turning and every time it hits a certain point it squeaks. So, when you drive fast the squeak sound is almost a solid sound and when you sit at a red light the sound goes back to a slow squeak. When I touch the clutch peddle and push it in just an inch the sound is gone, and when I push the clutch all the way in the sound disappears. I hope the explanation helps..... Thanks for the help..

Throwout bearing is not properly preloaded. You pushing the clutch in a little and the sound going away is preloading the cable/bearing and making it quiet.


If you have a stock clutch quadrant, grab your pedal and pull UP on it and you should hear a zipping noise which is the self adjusting mechanism. If you have an aftermarket setup, which is optimal you need to tighten your firewall adjuster enough to preload the throwout bearing.


If the stock mechanism trick does not work, I would get a Max Motorsports quadrant and a Fiore microclick firewall adjuster and manually preload the bearing.

hi there, I just bought a boot cover for my 94 GT convertible, no instructions came with it. (eBay) it a factory part. my question is does the cover sit outside of the frame where the roof sits? or do you tuck the cover under the frame so you can see that black plastic lip that goes around the the roof line.. thanks..
