Clutch noise... Again.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2GhTU5xvd8

'00 TJ 4.0

It's not inside the cab, and it seems that there's enough fluid in the reservoir (it is the same reservoir as the brake fluid right?) Could it be something in the hydraulics? Can I access them without dropping tcase/trans?

No, it's not the same reservoir as the brake fluid, but it's next to it more toward the outside. That noise sounds like it might be your release bearing or pressure plate fingers...maybe a broken spring. Go to Harbor Freight and buy one of those mechanics steathoscopes, they're only a few $'s, http://www.harborfreight.com/mechani...ope-69913.html then put it on the bell housing and listen while someone pushes in on the clutch pedal. If it's coming from inside, either drive it til it won't drive any longer or pull the transmission and fix it...(Do a clutch job)

Well, I found it. Looks like it's full. I was thinking it may be something bad with the hydraulics because it's also somewhat tough to push, and sometimes a bit slow on return.

Hydraulics issues don't produce noise. The noise is something mechanical. It's either as I mentioned above, inside the bell housing like broken pressure plate springs (which would make your pedal return slow), or it is in the cab where your clutch pedal connects to the master cylinder.

If it makes you feel any better, mine's been making that noise for 3 years now and nothing's exploded yet. I do keep a clutch kit in the trunk though...
