- My model of MX-5 is: MK2
- I’m based near: Wimborne
- I’m looking for technical help or recommendations on: _clutch master cylinder/clutch pedal assy.
having checked out the various topics on this subject I am seeking further information on what I believe to be perhaps a dry seal within the master clutch cylinder. This dry, low pitched squeak noise shows itself when the car interior is warm and pressure is on the clutch pedal approx. half way down the stroke. Lifting slightly and pressing again on the clutch pedal makes it more noticeable. Its an annoying noise when in reality there should be none.
I have replaced the main bolt bushes along with the bush in the push-rod fork to clutch master cylinder. All parts have been lubed with white lithium grease liberally. Pressing the clutch pedal by hand the sound was just audible as I watched the plunger pushing on the sliding part within the bore of the master clutch cylinder about half way down, and could be made constant by taking off and applying pressure.
Anyone else experienced this and if so what was done to remove it? My thoughts are turning to replacing the seals within the master clutch cylinder. Over to you guys
