x10.

I just mentioned that in another thread. I just replaced the NV3550 in my 04. It was LOUD before. And the new one...LOUD. Just the same, that's just the way they are. But no squeaking. Throw out bearing is always a usual suspect. I think as an isolated fix, the TOB is simple and quick - it's dropping the tranny that takes the time and $, unless you can do it yourself. If you do that, just throw a whole new clutch kit on it. You can get a new OEM clutch kit with everything, including TOB, etc for around $170. If you get that far, you may as well do it all to save having to do it again down the road.

WSU Tony I'm guessing the clutch release or throw out bearing will require the transmission to be dropped like odhinn suggested? If so I'm guessing at least a couple hours work in the shop, looks like no cheap fix! Does putting it in neutral and letting go of the clutch at stops helps this? From what I've read from you guys, this can minimize damage to the throw out bearing. ?

ccain If it stops when you push in on the clutch, it's more than likely the Clutch Release (Throw Out) Bearing.

If it is a steady squeak while the clutch is out then I would say possible clutch related. Mine has squeaked like that for about 2 years if the Jeep sits for a long time or is cold when I first start it up. In order to replace anything involved with the clutch the transmission needs to be dropped. Just keep an eye on it. If it does bother you to much either get under it and look at it or take it to a shop and have them check it out.

blktrax The most polite way I can put this, and I'm exactly the same way when it comes to my car.

First - Take it to the dealer if it bothers you that much. They have sonic equipment to diagnose such problems.

Second - It's a Jeep Wrangler, about a half step up from an Horse and Cart, it will squeek, rattle, bang, klunk, smash, and keep right on truckin'.

If the sqeek isn't louder than a tree branch going up the side, I dont even worry about it.
