I thought it was the TOB too. Its actually the ball between the tranny forks. it gets so hot the ball dries out and squeaks. All you have to do is drop down the dust cover in the tranny and lube the ball between the forks and the noise will go away. It has to be done pretty often tho but better than putting in s TOB. hope this helps!

I think he means the pivot ball. Yes they will make noise but I persoonally think its more like a squeak than a chirp. And then only when you push the clutch pedal in.

Fwiw, when I replaced my clutch, installed a new pivot ball and lubed it up with high temp disc caliper grease.

But I still think op's issue is tob if its a chirp

Let me help. I have a video of each.

The first is a video of my car when I got it. My shift fork had gone completely dry and had started rattling/chirping. For what it's worth, my TOB was also cracked and my pilot bearing was broken as well. The second is one of numerous failed TOB videos on YouTube.

To get my pilot bearing out I had to try TWO hammer slides, rented both broke one, tried heavy grease, tried wads of watered paper (that hurt) eventually I just chiseled it out (Im going to try that first next time lol)

I lubed my pivot ball with high temp molly grease, no problems yet...

hey sry i didn't get back to this thread sooner didn't think people would be this interested lol. well i bought my mustang last year and it had that squeal since the day i bought it. I had 4 buddies look it ( all mechanics, some who race) and they all had something different to say and it got to the point where i was convinced it was a TOB. I brought it back to the guy i bought it from and he swore to make me happy so he sent it to his mechanic. they put in a new TOB to keep me happy even tho it turned out it didn't need it. He told me the guy dropped open the dust door to the tranny and used white lithium on the ball between the forks and the squeak was gone for about 3 months but came back eventually. Its actually super common on this body style mustang. I bought it to a local mechanic and told him to lube it again and kinda half assed it and it never went away. U have to get in there and make sure you hit it u can't just spray blindly into the dust door like my guy did. I wish i had more to elaborate on but thats really all thats to it. so please don't just jump into getting a TOB without at least trying this first. Id love for ppl to get back to me on this and let me kno if this helped them like it helped me. Thanks guys!

I honestly don't know. Does it happen when the clutch pedal is pushed in, or just in gear when driving around?

Nope just when clutch put in. I've had people say its the tob but from where I read a lot it sounds like it only happens when clutch isn't engaged. Mines quiet as can be but once that clutch goes down this aching whining noise happens. Even when I rev the engine the sound gets louder. It didn't happen till after I had trans swapped. Someone said they might have not torqued it right?

I have had multiple mustangs and never ONCE had this issue or even heard of it. Also -1 for letting some random dude spray lubricant all over your clutch...

Also please explain to me how one pulls the clutch fork off the pivot ball with the trans in the car/clutch installed.

I had this problem didn't know what to do? Just so happened my plastic clutch pedal quadrant broke. So I bought an adjustable clutch cable kit, with the quadrant, cable, & adjustable firewall spacer from UPR. Total cost was like $80. I installed it and adjusted it and the squeak/chirp went away...

I used a big flat head screw driver when I did it by myself but if you had two people then have one press the clutch in and you can release it that way. Just you tube it man it's really not hard at all... YouTube-(bbk adjustable clutch cable)... Hope this helps...

Yeah that is not that hard I was asking how dude claiming to be able to lube up the pivot ball with the trans installed in the car planned on doing that lol. I wonder if they made him pay for a blinker fluid refill when he had them do it...
