Pressing/releasing clutch pedal - audible click sound (not the clutchs switch

Anybody notice this?

There's a click sound that comes and go that started to appear about week four with the car. Can't describe how loud it is but it's definitely a lot lot louder than that other faint click which most likely is the clutch switch (which I believe is used to detect if the clutch is depressed so the car can be started or to turn off the cruise control if it's in use).

This louder click seems to occur around the midpoint of the clutch pedal travel, either being depressed or released. It comes and go.

I'll bring it up when the car goes in for it's first oil change but that won't be anytime in the near future.

Would be interesting to see what the dealership says about this with the BRZ.

My 2011 WRX did this same thing. Went on and off but would make a tiny click sound when pushing in or letting out.

I have this noise too, but have not discussed it with the dealer yet. I test-drove a FRS and a BRZ before I purchased and both did this. I figured its normal.

Does this occur only when the clutch is pushed in or released or do you also hear this when letting off and on the throttle quickly? This almost sounds like the CV joint

I'm having the same issue. I'm asking the dealer on my next service.

This happens regardless of what I'm doing. Actually shifting into another gear. At a stop light and in neutral. Car's off and I'm just pushing/depressing the clutch pedal.

Again, the sound comes and go, it's not consistent but it's occurring around the midpoint of the clutch pedal travel regardless if I'm depressing or releasing the clutch.

Problem is, like any dealer, for them to diagnose the issue the issue needs to be duplicated easily and since this comes and goes, it'll be a difficult one to point out. I guess you could try and record a video with the sound happening and show it to them which may help them to look into it.

Did look at an exploded view of the clutch pedal mechanism, could be anything right now on what's causing that click.

Well if its happening when the car is stationary and you are pressing and releasing the clutch pedal then it's definitely not the CV joint.

I have this but I don't care. Turn on the radio and

Just sounds like some kind of switch doesn't seem at all like something to be worried about so I don't...

Hmmm, after reading this thread I made sure I listened closely last night while driving the BRZ. It does the same thing that the WRX did. Maybe I just tuned it out so much I didn't even notice it!

I signed up for these forums just because I've had this problem before (and my BRZ comes in next month ). On my 8th gen Civic, I got these exact noises from the clutch pedal. Apparently, cheaper cars these days use plastic clutch master cylinders that are prone to cracking/breaking. When that happens, the grease in the internal springs/bearings seeps out and causes it to start making noises. The Civic community fixed it by replacing the CMC with a metal one, or filled up the broken ones with white lithium grease as a temporary fix. For those of you with this noise, I'd bet asking your dealer to inspect the CMC will turn up a broken/cracked one and get you a replacement under warranty.

Mine makes a "Zzzzt!" sound when I let out the clutch and get on the gas quickly...
Hope it's normal...

I have this too, it sounds like it's coming from the clutch pedal, it's sounds more harsher than a click though. Like a few clicks simultaneously. I was wondering if it was an issue that should be brought up since I'm going to bring it to the dealer soon, I also have crickets.. I don't know if they'll do anything about them though but sounds like I have bad belts.
