I refer to this stuff as white gold. It's really nice stuff, just a pain to clean if you get it on car windows (I put just a dab along the window-track, keeps all operating surfaces happy). Works great on slider doors around the house too.

So I tried using some white lithium grease on the shaft as shown in the video. I noticed the shaft was very dry and it seemed like any grease that might have been there has been long gone.

I applied the grease, pressed in the clutch fully a few times to help spread more inside the rubber part, and let it sit overnight and tried driving this morning.

I didn't notice any honking noise for 80% of the trip and was starting to think it worked. I tried different levels of aggressiveness with shifts, let the clutch slip a few times, and no noise. Then I tried downshifting from 3rd to 2nd moderately aggressively and got a nice honk sound. Problem not solved

@Tcoat

OK step two. Clutch fork. A little more difficult but still not horrid.

So for this part, I'm only adding the grease around the top of the clutch fork, right? I'm not going to need to drop the transmission and get access to the rest of the fork, will I? IF that's the case, I might as well take to the dealership because I don't have the equipment to drop the transmission.



(not an fr-s I know, but the assembly is close enough)

So if I don't need to drop the transmission, where would I need to grease up? I've already greased the shaft that connects to the fork. I can't think of where else I could add grease to that's reachable. Maybe only around the fork where the rubber is? I don't see how that could make the honking noise...

Reach as far down as you can and smear it in. No disassembly required.

I'll give it a try tonight then! Seems like it can be done solo. I'll let it sit again overnight and drive in the morning and report back

There is one more thing you can do but it is tricky.
You have to get up inside the car and grease up the master cylinder rod.

I've heard a "honk" once in a while if I apply too much throttle with the clutch partially disengaged.
I always associated that with the pilot bearing fluttering a bit and try not to do that.
Get the clutch engaged fully before romping on it is my solution.

May be totally unhinged speculation. No promises.

edit: listened to the harmonica tune on the first page.
My noise was a couple octaves lower frequency than on the YouTube clip

The one pictured is for the brake cylinder rod but I'm looking for the clutch one, correct? Should look similar from the inside I think. I'll tackle that at the same time.

OOPS. I haven't been able to find a good picture of the clutch one. It is up in there.

So I greased up the clutch fork as much as I could. Had a tough time getting past the rubber boot.

I also greased up the cylinder inside the footwell as best I could. Wasn't too hard to find the right one by pushing the clutch pedal in.

Took a drive this morning, and didn't hear any issues. Since this is an intermittent thing I'm not fully convinced it's good, so I'll continue to monitor it.
